looking for good shocks for my bike

I have a 17 RGS add LA lowering blocks 1" but the HD shocks suck with 2up
want to replace them with something better without adding height to the bike
since I am now flat footed.

Alot of discussion on here about shocks. I would suggest doing a search and you'll get alot of good info. I personally would check out Supershox.

Ohlins, Supershox, ProAction are all worth a look.

I hear good things about all the above. I put supeshox on the back of my 17 rgs and it made a world of difference.

Just had Ohlins installed while in Sturgis. Made the bike ride incredible. I rode over 1200 miles home towing an aspen camper. We had a chance to ride Spearfish canyon road after getting them installed and the bike stays planted in the curves like never before.

After researching like you, I'm seriously considering Ohlins...

LOVE my Supershox, easy quick install, easy set up, awesome ride. Im guessing anything outside of stock is going to be incredible though.

I couldn't believe the difference in them when I set the OEM next to the new Supershox

It's hard for a Norwegian to admit it, but those made-in-Sweden Öhlins are top notch.
They even made H-D specific shocks for touring and what not; the NIX 22 or FKC 100 (front) and STX 36 (rear) are awesome! As already mentioned ask Smarty here - he's the expert.

After doing a lot of research, I took the plunge and talked with Brian and ordered a set of premiums for my '16 FLTRUSE today. Can't wait for them to get here. I was told they were about 7-10 days out for shipping them, so will have to wait a couple weeks.
