Just ordered suspension for mine. Will be here Wednesday. But really yours shouldn't ride rough. Usually Harley suspension is too soft.

It's not a horrible ride but could always be better

To me the factory ride was like riding a rigid bicycle. It was terrible.

Now I have Street glide rear suspension and progressive springs in the front.

Just bought progressive front springs and drag spec 13" height adj rears. We'll see how it works. I may end up changing the emulator and throwing on preload adjusters.
