It does look a little high but I really like the fact that my VTX corners like a sports bike. if you hit too many tight corners in a run, all closed up she will get a bit ropey. But it's nice to have the ability to really put her on her side. It seems to me pointless to have such power on tap and not be able to hoof it around the bends.

If you know how to ride a bike, the 1800 does quite well in the twisties. I always get a kick out of the guys who say the 1800 doesn't handle well in the curves. Back in '05, several of us from Houston went to the annual Coloradical VTX rally on our VTXs. One of the guys was 2-up on his 1800, and he was carving up the roads like nobody's business...and leaving us behind. He still has his bike and still rides it like that.

Funny thing is, it's not really a secret about how to handle the 1800.
Counter steer! It works amazingly well and the 1800 sheds its weight so quickly as you get going

Here's the stock 1800C shocks vs. your bike, Wavey Dave...maybe an inch or two higher by the naked eye.

Here's mine

Here's some before and after of mine. I wanted to do the 240 wide tire kit but I couldn't justify the cost(the kit cost more than I paid for the motorcycle!), so I just went with the 200 tire, new fender & seat. I like it.
