I'm not sure I could ever go back to a telescopic fork. This bike has utterly ruined them for me. My last ride on my FJR, before I sold it, but after I had owned the K1600 for awhile, was eye-opening. All I could think the entire ride was how crappy the front end felt after riding only the K1600 for a couple weeks. Just my experience, and YMMV.
Those who say they lose "feel" when switching to the Hossack suspension are the same folks, IMO, who fault certain vehicles for lacking "character."
