Put 500 miles on my SERGC with Ohlin 6's and then took it in for the 1000 mile service (didnt put them on until 500 miles) and had the shocks "dialed in" now that they were somewhat broken in. I loved the shocks before (as I stated in a couple of threads) but when I got on my bike today, it was like nothing I have ever felt on a Harley... I have rode motorcycles most of my life and Harleys for the last 16 years and probably the only bike that has ever been close was a BMW LT with Ohlins. The only thing that pisses me off is that I have gone all these years not knowing a Harley could ride like this. I realize that they are insanely expensive (which is why I have never "taken the leap" before) but I will tell all my RG Junkie brothers and sisters out there that if you can find a way to get these, once you get them "dialed in" you will love every minute you have them!!
