Traxxion? Air ride?

Does anyone use Traxxion shocks on their RG? Or using an air ride setup?Or have an opinion on them.
Was looking at air ride just to drop the rear since I put on the extended bags and fender but want a better ride too. Especially when we are 2 up with tour pak. Thats about a third of the time.
Dont know anyone personally using air ride either arnott or legends so not sure of ride quality especially for passenger.

(as they say in America)

Ive got the Arnott Aldan set up. It offers a lot of adjustibility and the ride is really good imo. My husband has the same set up on his RK. Cant give an opinion as for how riding 2 up is, both our bikes are solo.
I ride with it about half way up and drop it all the way down when parked.

If you like to go and show, then the air ride systems are the way to go. I ride with a set of the ARNOTT ALDANS at 13 inches and a fourth of the time I am riding two up. I like the ability to quickly adjust for the load, for the most comfortable ride and to be able to have that lowered look when parked. Flexibility is great.

I was once a pack animal too...

I had traxxion on my 08 fltr. Nice product. Terrible installed. I have since learner the best thing is to have the work done at traxxion has. But note that riders on other forum who have had both say that progressive monotube is just as good and a load cheaper.
