    Hi,

    For a high quality confort (vertebrae issue), would you replace the rear shocks with "Progressive : 440" or "Fournales : Twin Shock" ?
    (or others)

    I personally like the HD air shocks on my UC. I like being able to add air to customize the ride depending on 2-up or solo. I did go with the lowered version (54631-02B) since I have lowered the bike front and rear. THAT and the REACH seat has made a big difference to the perceived stability of the bike. This may not be as big an issue on the EG.

    TQ

    I spoke with the fournales man today by email.
    He answered my questions on 3 emails + gave me some advice and technical recommandations + made me a kind commercial offer.
    It's ok i'll go with fournales classic 13,5" + the air pump.
    Thanks for your answers.

    I have back issues also, and if it is going to make it comfortable who cares about price.

    Yes a time comes when the rest of your life depend on it, you invest in what you shall without restriction.

    To come back on the fournales, i think it will be confortable and it should technicaly never bottom due to the air incompressability property.

    But as i'm in bed since 15 days now and i don't know if i will be able to ride again, i still not send the order. I think i will soon...

    Watch your back ;-)

    I received the shocks.

    One pair for the Guzzi, one for the Electra (no jalous).
    The pump was a gift.
