Hi there
I'm looking for more comfortable rear shock absorbers.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

I was looking to change my rear shocks for more comfortable ride, I fitted a gel seat from ebay, no more problems! (cheapest course of action)

I've got Progressive 440's on my Speedmaster. They work very well and give a nice ride.

I've got the stocks on, set to hard. Thought they'd suffice, however hit a rut on hard lean with 40kg son on the back. Now have a nasty exhaust scratch. 440s on the list.

The ikon 7610 work well for me on my speedmaster. Fully laden (approx 195kg) with luggage & my wife I used to scrap pipes before pegs. Now I don't scrap at all. A much safer alternative to the stock shocks eventhough a little costly. But what price do you put on safety?
