Installed ohlins 2-2b's

Guys, I just wanted to let my fellow Roadgliders know that I took the plunge on some new suspension. Ohlins 2-2b which are the 12 7/8" in length (stock being 12", my bike is a FLTRX) only 250 miles on the new shocks but the ride already seems 100% better. Most say these shocks need 650-1000 miles of break in to deliver the best ride, however they are already so great for large as well as small bumps, and carving ability has been greatly increased. They do raise the rear of the bike 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch, in my opinion the much improved ride is worth jacking up the rear slightly. I cannot comment on 2-up riding yet as my wife is VERY pregnant. Keep in mind I do currently have stock suspension up front so I'm trying to keep that separated in my mind. I will post some pics later in the day when I get home from work.

After the 117 engine build is completed, I'll tackle the suspension short
comings. These are on the short list.
I'd be interested to here how they settle in after say a thousand miles.

That is a Danny gray bigseat with airhawk option. You can find my thread and review of it here.

Do the Ohlins come in 12"? I have the low pro 12" HDs on my FLTR and am looking for an upgrade, but I like the lowered look.
