Seems very nice. I currently have a metric so it's of no help to me. I am glad, however, to see this kind of thoughtfulness in a product for motorcycles. I see a lot of male riders out there who could use this as well.

Perfect! Lowering a bike's suspension would normally be a last choice option, due to the resultant significant decrease in cornering clearance. H-D's are already pretty limited in this area to begin with. With these shocks, you can still corner your motorcycle with the suspension in the stock position, then lower it for parking, which is where we shorties need the help. Too bad they're not making it for metrics!

I also am vertically challenge at 5 feet 2 inches and my husband had purchased a Street Glide for me as a surprise. I could not touch the ground at all. Not very comforting. We started out with different shocks to lower the bike and that helped a little but never felt comfortable with them.They were just not low enough. I did some research and found out about the Legend shocks and had them put on my bike along with a FBI (Fat Baggers) 3 inch lowering seat kit. My bike is perfect now. My feet are flat on the ground and my confidence in my bike is 100 percent. I have been very pleased with how the shocks work over all.

Thank you for sharing that with us. Here is the link for the FBI 3 inch lowering seat kit for those who are interested.

The article is fine, and I'm happy for the 5-foot-2 woman who can now manage her bike better. I understand. I'm not short, but I have a short inseam, 29 inches. I have used these products on three of my bikes, but my story is different. These shocks are great for parking lots, like the woman said, but they do have drawbacks. The hard tail effect is one, which was mentioned. The other is that, in my opinion, you sacrifice performance of the motorcycle at high speeds, especially in curves on a highway at highway speed, and of course, you lose the advantage of stock shocks and get a harder ride. It did not matter how much adjusting I tried, I never seemed to get the ride the way it should have felt.

I just finally pulled the system off, lowered my bikes as much as possible, pulled stuffing out of reach seats and replaced it with gel pads, got layers of rubber added to my boots, and now I feel safer on the bike having removed the air shocks. They were great for me for a while, until I started realizing that they were interfering with performance. I guess we just do what we have to do for our own comfort.

Thank you for sharing. It's no secret that aftermarket shocks will affect the ride. But aftermarket companies, like Legend Suspensions, go to great lengths to ensure that ride is optimal for that lowered position. But of course each person's gauge of comfort is different.

I lowered my Street Glide and yes, the ride is noticeably different, but not so much that I couldn't handle it. I just brace myself when I go over bumps knowing the suspension is very low. I wouldn't trade that for the security of knowing I can put both feet flat on the ground and maneuver my motorcycle now in all situations.
