considering that you have an 08 that has the 13inch shocks, a 1'' drop will get you right to the stock height of the road glide custom. so going another 1/2'', you probably wouldn't even notice the difference (from the custom)
i have a road glide custom, i sent my shocks to bitchin baggers, and had them cut to 11-1/4'', which is lower than your 1-1/2'' proposed drop. yes, it is a little harsh of a ride, but with short legs, you do what you gotta do. no adverse effects as far as handling goes. one other thing though, i do not ride 2 up. but with enough pressure, you can, and still get a decent ride (so i've heard).
the one thing i would recommend, is to find a set of the newer air shocks (09 up) that have been improved from the older shocks. you can always find them fairly cheap as take offs.
I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
