Extended Bags without Air Ride

Has anybody done extended bags without going with air ride suspension? I'm looking at doing four inch stretched bags, but don't want to pony up for the air ride. Comments? Suggestions? Experiences?

You don't need air ride to do extended bags. Rear air ride is actually aired down when the bike is parked and not moving for a slammed stance. Some people have riding with the rear aired down with bad consequences. So basically aired up while riding and aired down while parked or not moving. Many guys and gals on here have 4 inch extended bags with stock or stock ride height shocks with no problems. I'm sure others will chime in

I didn't go with air suspension (besides OEM, ) and now I have JRI shocks which aren't air at all, everything is fine. I have Top Shop 4" bags.
