If you want a ride like a goldwing the fronts are a must and for the back of the bike this is what you will need.VTreX1800c said:Are they worth the money? I would not expect them to make a VTX ride like a goldwing but does it make the ride MUCH better?
Spike,Chicago-Spike said:Yep. I'd do it again in a minute. Had the 412s on another bike and they improved the stock ride. Then went with the 440s on my X, and that improved the ride much more than the 412s did. 8)
There was a line of Gold Wings over at Daytona during Bike Week getting Progressive ShocksVTreX1800c said:Are they worth the money? I would not expect them to make a VTX ride like a goldwing but does it make the ride MUCH better?
This is the same issue that I have. If were just me and I did not want my wife to go I would leave it alone even though I would like a smoother ride. She told me to buy a Goldwing !! I just felt like I missed a setp. If you know what I meen. We are in our late 50's. I have a Corbin touring seat with backrest and jell pad for her but still needs to be better. I'll buy Gold in a couple of years and keep the X. I am 200+ and she is 120, I think I need the HD shocks. NO one has voted but thanks for the input!!!bradleyVTX said:Thanks guys. It sounds like the 440's with the lighter spring may be the way to go for my bike, my wife ends up jarring her neck with the stockers, it has got so bad that she says she may not be able to ride, I really enjoy having her along with me so I will have to make the switch.
