Fucken sweet. First thing is get rid of those rear air shocks. When I get back in town I am gonna start researching progressive shocks.

The air shocks are clunky

Most excellent!! Your gonna like that motor too. Tons of torque down low.

Let me know if you start looking into rear suspension upgrades. The front is fine. But the rear 2 up the way it feels and what we are use to? Yeah it needs to be switched out.

Can't wait to go riding again myself and ride/ just cruise with some of you guys.

I have progressives on my turd but to be honest, it's all I have ever felt on the bike - Rode it with Stockers for like (5) mins then had 'em swapped out so I don't remember what they even feel like

From what I have heard and read, they are well liked

Yes, progressive shocks that is. These air Harley shocks leak air, they feel clunky and not smooth. I hate the rears with a passenger on. (my lady)

Exactly ..... Although I still have a really pimp GSXR .....


Going to wait and see on the shocks etc ....... Maybe new is not too bad.
We rented an Electra Glide Ultra Classic last year for a weekend ... It seemed Alright.
