I wanted to post my experience with my Electra Glide. After reading as many forums and talking to other riders, I decided to purchase new suspension for my bike. I decided on the progressive 444 standard rear shocks, and the monotube for the front. It gives me the ride I was hoping for. No more front end dive at braking and a smooth ride in the rear. I believe that the HD 444 would have been too stiff. I weigh in at 260, and six foot tall. I ride solo most of the time, and this bike is for touring.
