New Harley Touring Shocks are called what?

So I stop at the dealership and I see in parts are these new shocks the Harley sells that are $1000.00! The sales guy says these are the best touring shocks ever! Selling tons of em. Well I forgot what their called and cant find em on the Harley website. I wanted to do some research but as I said, forgot what their called! Anybody know? They're gonna have to be really good to be worth a grand!

I just looked in the parts catalog. HD still has the "Premium hand adjustables" they have had for years. $549.95 for the pair. I now have my 2nd RG with these shocks and I like them of course you can save close to $100 buying them from one of the dealers that discounts on the Internet but I didn't see any new shocks listed.

I don't think you can beat the Progressive 444HD, unless you want to go to air ride with a compressor, and I'm not so certain there're any good since HD comes with an air shock.

Will agree that Progressive 444's are a good bang for the buck, what I have on my Dyna.. But there is better Suspension out there, but will pay a high premium for them ..

Do yourself a favor and look at Ohlins. Had Progressive 440's for a couple years and thought they were much better than stock but the Ohlins are night and day better.

Ohlins, Pro Action, Legend and Bitubo are the cream of the crop. They are pricey and worth every penny. Progressive are marginally better than stock and that ain't sayin much.

Have any of you priced after-market shocks at all? Just as expensive, prohibitively so for people who own a bike(s) that aren't 'toys'.

You get what you pay for I have tried Progressive 944, JRI and now have Pro Action which are the best of those 3 by far. IMHO
