Question Suspension Upgrade Questions

I'm 225lbs 95% of my riding on my 2010 is one up long rides with loaded bags and a tourpak. After some research I'm leaning towards Super Shox rears and Progressive Monotube's in the front.

Anyone running this setup, likes or dislike?

Anyone one recommend a different setup, why?

Thanks!

I put Super Shox on my 17 RGS about a month ago - only been out twice because it won't quit raining on my days off. Huge improvement for the rear (literally). I'm 225# and have them set at 2 for now and it's a lot smoother over the bumps. I ride solo all the time. I have not done anything to the front yet. Like I said, only a few hundred miles on them so far but no complaints.

I have that setup on my 2009 and I am very happy. I ride solo all the time.

I have ohlins on the rear and the progressive mono tubes on the front. Completely satisfied, million times better than stock. Hard to realize how bad a suspension such an expensive bike comes with. I got ohlins through Smarty (Carol Burks) on here. Great help in getting things set up correctly. I have a 2016 Road Glide Ultra, weigh right at 220 and seldom have passenger.

Same bike, same set up . The Super Shox are great . They ride soft an absorb the bumps well. The monotubes are good but gives you a more sports feel than a luxury type ride.
I did the monotubes a few years before upgrading my air shocks to the SuperShox ,so I really felt exactly what the monotubes offered. They are definitely an upgrade to the 2010 oem front end ,but don't ride as soft.

Did this exact setup about 2 years ago and have been very happy. Brian @ Super Shox advised me on the shocks and setting and was spot on.
