My husband (who is a master working on any kind of bike) lowered my 2008 Harley-Davidson Electra Glide for me. It was lowered front and rear. I rode it stock with the touring pack and the extra chrome, and I've ridden it custom. I wouldn't go back to riding it stock because I can now negotiate in any terrain sure- and flat-footed. I also equipped it with a Corbin seat which brings it even a little lower. I love the way it looks — lowered, sleek, and sexy. Like anything else on the bike, it's what feels good between your legs. Your bike, your choice.

I have a 2008 Harley-Davidson Street Glide that I would like to lower 1 inch and also get rid of the Harley air shocks. What progressive model of suspension would you recommend?

Here is the article outlining what I did to my Street Glide's suspension. I chose the shocks specifically designed for a Street Glide from Progressive Suspension.

I lowered my '07 BMW R 1200 RT with 1 inch shorter shocks sprung to my weight two years ago. My ride is more comfortable with the shocks built for me and I really like not having to think so much about where and how I stop now that I can comfortably get the balls of both feet down. The modification on my bike required shortening the center and side stands, and does not seem to have made a noticeable difference in handling.

I have an 07 Street glide with 1 inch lowering kit in front. I am 5 feet 6 inches and am interested in the shocks used on Genevieve's bike. How is the shock adjustment handled when riding 2-up versus solo rider?

Kim,
I've not ridden two-up on my Street Glide and have no plans to. I can tell you that with the additional weight of my 40-pound luggage on the back, the bike actually rides better, but if you add a whole person, it might bottom out since the shocks I have are the lowest the bike can go. I will ask David Zemla from Progressive to weigh in on this and post his response when I get it.
