OK, I have funds set aside for a rear shock for the GL1800. I have installed Traxxion front springs which will be the subject of a future post. I am now researching which rear shock to purchase. I know that Traxxion will redo the original shock and Works Performance makes a replacement and probably others. I would appreciate any comments on these and/or other alternatives. I ride long distances solo and two up. When riding two up I ride sedately (usually) in the twisties and desire a comfortable ride for my true love but alone I ride at least sprightly and sometimes downright speedily. (I weigh 165 and drag the pegs a lot.) I also pull a trailer on long distance two up rides. Thanks for your comments.
