Review Summary:
I ride 2-up most of the time - the wife does let me out of the driveway without hoping on too. I have done 12,000 kms on the bike and the stock shocks were getting very spongey. We ride in New Zealand which has twisty roads of verying quality so good shocks are a must. I bought the heavt duty version at 12 inches (to give a bit more clearance for those sweeping corners)and have not looked back. Very easy to install (if you have a bike lift) and look good. It's a shame the saddle bags hide them. The ride is AMAZING. In the past I was hammering the brakes into corners to avoid wobble and bottoming out. Now I can corner much faster and with much more confidence. Will definitely do the front forks next
