Trying to figure out what I'm going to do, too. Going to look at Hagons shocks as an alternative (had them on a BMW and Triumph before) since I've liked them in the past. Only thing is, there is only one place to get them in the USA, Dave Quinn in Mass. But they do build them individually to every bike and rider, with load and style of riding taken into account - they come set up very well. What has always amazed me is how cheap they are, considering the components are made in England and they are assembled (valved, specific spring added) in the USA. I've had Works Performance shocks before (Street Trackers) and they are great too. Just too many GOOD choices out there.
