Shotgun Bagger Shocks...

Have had the Shotgun Bagger Shocks on ~2 weeks now and am very pleased with them and their performance. Fortunate to live within a few hours of JD and his shop, was able to have the install completed there. He has redesigned the system in which the compressor is mounted directly to the back of the right side shock. Should there be any required access to the compressor, whalla, there it is without having to get under the bike, etc, etc. Air lines run into a "Y" connection, then to the compressor; wire harness to the battery and mounting plate with switches, and you are done.
System raises and fills quickly (~10 seconds, little more for desired firmness), then set the ride height/rebound and off you go. My '13 FLTRX (while on sidestand) sits at 6.25" lowered and raised is at 10.25", that allows for quite the adjustments when needed. I do freeway riding to work (softer ride); on way home, I can choose a number of alternate routes that allow for more fun with twisting curves (adjust to firmer ride) and less traffic; all adjustments done with a simple flip of the switches.
System is rock solid, as also as most know, customer service from JD and his crew is above and beyond.

Hadn't given any thought to it, I'm dialed in with the system and rides great. Besides, how would I be able to tell when it isn't 78 degrees here in SoCal?

I have his older style (got it a few months ago) and yours looks like it sits lower aired up than mine...does he have different length options now?

Not sure of any different lengths offered; changed the design of the body I believe to allow a little more space between bags/shocks, mounting compressor on body and to allow pass backrest to install (think last design didn't allow pass backrest).
