    I have recently read an article about Progressive Suspension's fork upgrade for the Tri-glide a new one piece cartridge insert, gives the trike better handling and its also mentioned 416 air shocks for the rear of the trike.

    Can't speak for the Tri-Glide, but I have 4000mi on my monotube system and I would not trade it for anything else on the market. You don't really notice it while riding, seems to feel much like stock. But when you grab a handful of front brake there is very little dive and the front end feels solid. There is no head shake or vering left or right, just solid straight line stopping! I do notice in the twisties that the front end seems more planted on the RG. In the next couple of months I will install the same system in the Softail.

    416 rear air shocks

    Anyone try the rear air shocks on their trike?
