Does it ride more like an F? Bottom easy? I'm looking for rough trail comfort. Thanks for any reply.

My wife and I both have the 2013 F1100 LXR's. They ride nice, and yes, they will bottem out once and awhile when you hit a rather large bump, bear in mind that I weight 240 and have not changed any of the settings from the factory.

I have a 2012 XF1100 LXR it has a different suspension than the F models, no torsion springs or coupling. I was initially unimpressed with the ride, it would bottom too easily, and if you tightened up the springs to stop that, it was harsh on the stutter bumps. I installed the Hygear linkage mod, which made a big difference, much nicer on all kinds of bumps now.

On my 2010 Crossfire SP I investigated and rode all the options (including the Burant re-valve) and ended up putting a 2009 torsion suspension on it. I wont have that option (I believe) with a XF. I did not ride one with the High Gear linkage rod. Do you think it brought the comfort level up to par with the torsion?

My 2013 XF LXR seems to me to be fine when I am alone. I have not ridden it hard enough to bottom it out. But I do not have a point of reference, I have not ridden any other models.

But... I have added the 2 up seat. My wife's comment was, "Doesn't this have any suspension?" It bottoms quite regularly with her on the back.

I will start a new thread with my question.
