This week ARR starts a three part series on custom fitting your bike to your body with Grant Johnson from Horizons Unlimited. Grant's vast background includes being a motorcycle mechanic and dealer, as well as co-owner of Horizons Unlimited with his wife, Susan Johnson. Grant has given many talks around the world as part of the HUBB presentations. In this series, he teaches our listeners about the three areas of your bike that can and need to change to fit your body. Grant discusses setting up the cockpit area of the bike, including the handlebars, windscreen area and levers.
