So with all said now I would like to ride a set of 12" shocks. No matter what the options picks he won't be disappointed. But definitely wouldn't be scared to go with the 12" set if worried about footing.

Like I said it's not that the 13"s were bad. In fact if the bike came with 13's that may be what would feel more "normal" to someone if they have ridden that for quite a while. However riding back to back and the fact that the Harley RGS and SGS come with 12 inch rear shocks the 13"s just didn't feel as good to me in the handling dept. The comfort of both the 12's and 13's were very similar but the handling of the 12's won me over.

Yes Sir, stock front end.

Thanks for all the replies. I just ordered the 12" from a seller on Ebay. Delivery is estimated to be March 19th. Looking forward to an improved ride.

The shocks came today and I put them on. Took a 4 mile test ride and immediately noticed improvement. Looking forward to riding a good bit this weekend.
