Why do you consider it a mistake?
Factory lowered has different shocks and a lowered seat.....I think
"Mistake" is probably a bit strong ... I should have asked: For those of you with a factory lowered bike, do you take them off road, and have you ever felt the lowered suspension was a limitation? The gist being: I want to start riding my bike off the pavement, and I want to use my own bike to do the level 1 GS course.
Had to be me. Someone else might have gotten it wrong.
