I have a Daytona Two-Up. I find it super comfortable. Good enough for all day riding, at least for me. Also good reviews from behind me. I have a Corbin Gunfighter too. While my Daytona is not one of...

I actually ended up following cggorman's lead and "upgraded" the top link after a bit... While it was stainless and never showed signs of corroding, the rod ends were a little squeaky and sloppy. ...

But it's a good starting point!

Okay, I did identify my "clunk" on Sunday. It turns out (surprise) that it was a bone-headed mistake on my part, but shouldn't be difficult to rectify. It was my...
