HD New HD Front Monotubes
I had installed the Ohlin #6 for the rear - Howard (motorcycle metal), did not have the Ohlin fronts in stock yet - Thought I'd go Progressive Monotubes - Talked to them at Bike Week they were not installing - just selling - I did not want to do the fronts - talked with the HD Factory Crew at their demo booth / they convinced me to try the new HD offerings - I had Laconia HD install them, they looked exactly like the Progressive units - stayed skeptical until I took it for a ride - got about 1200 miles on them - very pleased - no front end dive, excellent front handling - I'm not a road racer, those days are gone - for two up touring / handling so far so good - would be interested if anyone else has installed them.
Cost was the same as the Progressive
