Best Air Ride for Bad Backs

I have a really bad back, Pins rods etc. and I am looking for a better ride without going broke. My buddies wife is in the same shape and he just put the $1,800 Legends system on his SG. They rode about 3hrs straight and she loves it.

What is the best air ride for the money for a bad back?????

Maybe see if your buddy will let you take that bike for a ride so you can get a first hand feel for it. I know $1800 is a lot but if it fits your comfort needs then maybe it will be cheaper than buying a system you're not familiar with and having to replace it or parts until you are satisfied with it.

rlaf75, that's exactly what we're gonna do. he knows of my plight so he said, next time we go out, he's gonna trade out with me for 1/2 a day or so and hell, even my wife said that is cheaper than a 4th back surgery. I never thought she'd go for it. Guess she really does love me. Cause I'm worth more dead than alive. LOL
But I would still like to hear from others with air ride

The reason I suggested that was because anything comfort related is a very subjective question as everyone needs or requires different things and with money as a concern (and believe me it is for me too) its more frustrating and expensive to go the trial and error way. I did the DIY Monroe air shock set up that's been floating around here for awhile that cost me about $250 which I like but it's not something I would recommend to you because i find its not much different than the stock shocks. Now I can't give it a fair comparison to a high end system as I never had the opportunity to ride a bike with one but I'm sure it's not as good as one either

The best suspension for your back is going to be one that is built for you. Like an Ohlin, JRI, Works etc.

i to have a bad back,i got a diy kit from xotic cycles with monroe shocks. also added a police air seat with a utophia backrest. i am very happy with the ride, the best of the many h-d's i have owned. i ride solo most of the time. when the better half wants to ride, i put the mustang seat on. good luck.
