Not quite sure how the Triumph did it, but I don' think it was air based. It was based on a W h i t e Power shock, which had automatically adjustable damping and ride height (well the computer automatically adjusted them anyway). From memory I cannot remember it being air based. I might be wrong. I tell you what though, it was a very good and very reliable system. Every time you started it, it would decide what the new load factor was and if necessary would adjust according to whether you had requested a 1 up, 2 up or 2 up with luggage setting for ride softness. The GS I think just controlled damping front and rear. Either way, both systems seemed to extremely good in real world scenarios and I never had problems with either. I liked the way you dialed in the required ride softness with the little helmet and luggage icons, then it set the damping and ride height accordingly. Perhaps when my Spyder is working correctly it will be as good as these systems.
