I bought my last set of Ohlins from Carol.   For a first time dealing with him it was a small leap of faith, but couldn’t be happier with the service or the price.   

Highly recommend giving him a call and a shot at your business.

Alright, I labored long and hard on this decision. I called and talked to the folks at DK, Pro-Action, and SuperShox. I also took into account the input here on CVOHarley.com and some Youtube reviews. Ohlins were definitely in the running.

The folks at Pro-Action felt they had a better shock than the Ohlin 159 but they relented that the Ohlin Reservoir shock outperformed them by a bit (5-10%, however that would be measured). They had no opinion on the SuperShox line. The folks at DK, who use Pro-Action 14", thought the SuperShox was a fine product line.

All said and done, I decided upon the SuperShox Platinum Series LT 14" that has an MSRP of $1300. JCZ and BigChuck got me considering that mfg seriously and then talking to Brian G at SuperShox put me over the top. This is the top of the line Super Shox offers and it's similar to the Ohlin's HD852.

I tried to stay in my $600-$1000 target. I exceeded it by just a bit. $1075 including shipping from Horny Toad HD after talking to Reginald Harris.

He was at Shark Week last week. Goes by the name of Smarty on the boards.

Hey Harry, Ask Carol what he did to his bike on the way to Durango and what he did to be able to ride the rest of the trip.  :2vrolijk_21:

Ask Carol or Ed?     Ed hit the deer and pulled a Rolling Stones Lips Ducktape job as I hear it will ask Carol as well in the mean time

I’m running legends Revo A HD because I’m heavy lol. I am really liking them, I had Proaction 12 inch shocks custom made for my wife and I and they bottomed our all the time. My new shocks are 13 inch and that alone helps a lot. I would buy Revo a again in a heart beat. I also have there Axeo fork inserts and like them a lot as well. It feels very balanced now and my wife is much happier on the bumps😄

Desert and others with the Super Shox, when using that relocation mount, are there any clearance issues with the Saddle bags installed?  Looking at the pictures the shocks are 2" further back on the swing arm.

Not supposed to be an issue. I don't see how it would get in the way of anything. Plus I know JCZ would have said something if it wasn't a straight up perfect fit.

No, no clearance problem.  Nothing on the back side of my saddle bags.....I check every time I wash it.
