Progressive 970's

Have not seen any feedback on these, has anyone been running the 970's? i have read some excellent things about them elsewhere.

I just got my 970's. I'm installing them tomorrow. I've never swapped out my stock suspension so I can only compare to what I know. I'll be riding up to the No. Cal Anti-Shark week meet in a few days. I'll probably do 1000+ miles in a few days. Should give me a chance to play with the suspension and dial it in.

I bought my 970's because my best friend is a mechanic at the HD Dealership. Progressive used him to install the shocks for a step-by-step picture tutorial in a major motorcycle magazine. As a result, my friend got a great deal on a set and installed them on his bike. He raves about them. I'm installing mine in the next couple of hours.

BTW, I shopped around. The best deal is through Phat Performance Parts.

$899 is a pretty good deal. Like to see how these compare to the similar Ohlins set up.

Unfortunately you'll never get an unbiased opinion on this. Anyone who's drank the coolaid and spent the extra money on Olin's or JBI's isn't about to tell you that their amazing, super cool, better than anything else ever built shocks are not better than anything put out by anybody ever!!!
