Good seeing this info on Fox Shox as I'm on the bubble about buying a pair of 12" for my 07 R/Glide, but really confused about the springs, STD ot HD. Most of my riding is 80% Solo & 20% 2-UP. The variation on spring rates come in because when riding solo there's no Tour Pak on the bike nor the wife, 2-UP has the Detachable Tour Pak,the wife and clothing assortment (LOL). So where does one make the right choice on the 2 springs available (STD & HD) due to the "BIG" weight change between the two riding modes. I'm @ 180 LBS and wife is 115 LBS, the Detachable Tour Pak, guessing about 35 LBS empty (+ 10 LB Loaded). So between solo & 2-up I'm having to address 160 LB weight change which is somewhat extreme.
Any input welcome on these FOX SHOX's.
