Bitchin Baggers Drop Shocks
I just installed my Bitchin Baggers Drop Shocks and thought I would share a review. First, I would like to say how impressed I was with Ron at Phoenix Customs. I Live in Texas, but had a business trip to Phoenix planned. In order to save a little on shipping, I timed it to where I could pick these up when I was there. I went by Ron' s shop and he spent about an hour showing me things that they had done and they were working on in the shop. You can tell that he loves what he does and cares about providing high quality. The shop was immaculate with some high-end equipment.
As for the shocks, I had my stock shocks lowered 1.75 inches, taking out 1 inch of travel. Obviously, the ride quality is not as smooth as the stock shocks, but it is still a good ride. I rented a street glide in Hawaii last year. I am not sure how much PSI were in the shocks, but that thing rode like a hardtail compared to these. The small difference sacrificed in ride quality was more than made up for in the better handling of the bike. I have a softail and after I bought this bike, i was second guessing my decision to buy it because I just found it difficult to get used to the high center of gravity of the touring frames. Even considered getting a drop seat kit, to get more of a softail feel. That has now all been resolved. This bike handles great. I live off of a curvy highway. The other day, I was in a curve leaning and applying throttle and found myself at 80 coming out of the curve. I now have to set the cruise to avoid getting a ticket. There may be smoother riding options out there, but for 175$, and lowering it 1.75 in, the drop shocks can't be beat.
