I'm looking to buy a rear suspension for my 2013 RGC. I was thinking Progressive 944. I ride hard 75% of the time. I will have passengers at times. I really want suspension to be smooth and a ride for comfort. What do you guy's think? I can't stand the hard crappy ride from the stock shocks....
What do you guys think, thanx.

I would not equate progressive suspension with the word comfort. The two really do not belong together. Better than stock? yes, comfortable? Not for me. Never had Progressive rear shocks that I found to be comfortable. I have had more than a few sets of Progressive rear shocks and they were always extremely stiff no matter what bike, weight spring, etc.

The HD air shocks are spongy IMO even if they are aired up to the max and riding 2 up they wanted to bottom out. It all depends on the weight the bike is carrying too.
I use the Progressive 440 adjustable shocks and I am very happy with them. I got the Heavy Duty shocks because I am a bigger person but the shocks adjusted at minimum is just right for me when riding by myself.
The ride is a little stiffer than the OEM HD air shocks but the handling is much better. The bike has never bottomed out with the progressive shocks when riding single or 2 up.
I would never go back to the OEM HD shocks JMO.
