Probably good but seems a bit too technical for my taste

I saw it at Daytona last year before they released it, seem nice, but I do not know if the cost is justifiable.

I'll be the first.
Had the iRide suspension installed on my 2019 CVO RoadGlide is Sturgis this year.
Yea, it is a bit expensive but worth every penny(well dollar or even a couple thousand of them....)
It definitely IS worth it. I'm 5'7" and can now have my feet flat with even a bit of knee bend when I stop. It's a godsend when riding 2-up down a street like Lazalle.
It auto lowers the bike 2-1/2" when you come to a stop and raises to 2 different levels at user defined speeds for city and highway driving. You don't really notice it although my wife says she can feel when the compressor is working in her floorboards.
That's all great like I said BUT the ride is SOOOO much nicer also. No more jarring bumps or gritting your teeth at expansion joints. I have a '97 Heritage Springer and while the ride is not that nice it is similar.
The guys at Thundermax were great even after the sale. I had a bit of an issue when I got home from Sturgis. I called Thundermax and was connected to Steve. He was actually in his car and told me he would get back to me as soon as he got to the office. You know my reaction to that....Well, he was back to me within the hour with a suggestion. I told him that I could't try it until I got home and he said to call him back on his cell even if it was 3AM. The fix worked and he told me to keep his number and call him any time day or night if I had any more issues.
I have absolutely no regrets and I'm totally happy with my purchase.

I looked into but it's not for my 09 unfortunately. I will vouch for their customer support though. I use the Tmax tuner and had to contact them with a few questions and they got back to me quickly and with great success. I wish they had the iride for the pre Rushmore bike's
