long story-short I had decided to go with Ohlins. When I spoke with Howard he told me the Ohlins were good but the JRi was a better shock...developed for the race car industry. American made in North Carolina. He would not advise me on which shock to buy but just went over the features. He has not offered the JRi's very long and if I am not mistaken told me I would be approximately 1 of 30 Harley bikes in the world with JRi shocks. He is offering real incentives to go the JRi route. The Ohlin 2-2A was going to cost me $545 with forum discount. The JRi 12A (12" similar to Ohlin 2-2A) lists on his site for $812. He sold them to me for $595 + $30 shipping. I did do some web research on JRi shocks for race cars and the overwhelming consensus on the race car drivers was that JRi was best money could buy, however many drivers said they could not afford the $3600 for a set of 4. I will post update after I install em and try em. As usual Howard insists on staying with me by phone as I install them.
