The lowering link lowers the bike by an inch, but as far as handling slight improvement

He did say Long Island though... Hmmm.

Nice bike though. Unless your 5'4" or under get it put back to standard ride height. It's not a car and doesn't improve by lowering.

Its not going to really be a huge difference. Unless you plan on hitting twisties hard. It just makes the bike handle different then stock.

Ok that explains the mod frenzy then and how easy it's being handled Tommy sure knows his way around a bike
