Bitubo Shocks arrived

Received my new Shocks today from the States from James at Independent Motorcycles. All up including shipping was just over 1K. Was going to go with the Ohlins, but decided to try these Italian shocks first. You mount them with the reservoir at the bottom and not up the top of the shock as per normal.

I brought these in the stock length for the Roadglide at 11', but could have taken 13'for the same price. Choose to keep stock length because i have the 21'rim on the front instead of the stock 18'and the bike has enough ground clearance as it is.

Will be interesting to see how they perform on the bagger.
