Question Progressive Touring Link

Has anyone used one of these? I've seen it in all the bagger mags and read what its supposed to do. How does it perform?

I had the Touring Link on my 2001 FLHT and it I loved it. Bike had slightly more vibration, but rode rigid and straight as an arrow. I have thought about installing one on my 2011 RGC but have been told there should be no need too. Being not completely happy with the way the bike handles, I am doing Progressive Monotubes and rear suspension, going to add the touring link while I'm at it.

I have the touring link on my 08 and it works great. With the new frames I wouldn't think you would need it but I never rode a new frame HD.

When I traded my '07 Road King in on my '10 Road Glide, I took her on a "hot lap" or two I know about in this area. When I got home, I told my O/L that I felt like I had a Norton again, just an 800 lb. Norton. As far as I'm concerned, yep - the new frames are fine without the touring link.

Bring 'em home or send us back!!

I have one on my '00 RK. The rod broke last year @ Biketober Fest. I brought mine from Phat Performance. I called & told them what happen and they charged me for a new rod. I won't be using that product nor that company again.
