Well then, it looks like I know where my trip next summer will take me!
He'll be at Shark Week (annual gathering of the Road Glides) in Deadwood the week after Sturgis this year. His screen name on here is Smarty so you can also PM Him on here.

This upgrade is one that I've been researching as well (factory one sucks) The Ohlins seem to be pretty popular and sound like a great product. Is selecting the length simple based on your desired ride height or there more to it? I'm at work or I'd go measure the factory ones.

Thank you all for the replies.  I received the Ohlins from Carol yesterday and plan to install this weekend. As mentioned before Carol Burkes (Suspended by Carol) is extremely knowledgeable about this product and a super nice guy to work with. Spend 5 minutes on the phone with him and he will have you lined out with exactly what you need.

Pretty sure He uses Suspended by Smarty as His name. Either way, He's a good dude.

I met up with Major Tom a few weeks ago in Maggie Valley and we got to talking about suspensions. I've run Progressive before on my last bike but was trying to decide what to do on my new one. He told me about his Ohlins and Carol Burks. Having ridden some miles with him in the past and knowing the miles he puts in, the conditions we've ridden in together, I knew that he knew what he was talking about. On his advice I contacted Carol Burks and ordered a complete setup for my new bike. He sent me the rears that I installed myself for the 500 mile ride to his shop for him to do the front end and a new set of 14" fat bars. With only a thousand miles on the whole set up since last week I'm tickled with the Ohlins performance and the wife loves the ride to. You couldn't ask for a better person to deal with than Carol Burks.

Looking to upgrade as well, looks like a good thread for Carol the shock man to make an appearance in.

I installed Legend Revo A's last summer. The ride is a major improvement on all levels and are BSR approved as well. Installation was as easy as it gets and near as I can tell they never need to be rebuilt. Not saying that they are better than the competition but if I had it to do over again I would not hesitate to go with the Revo's again.
