Nice set up. I can't believe the front of that bike isn't on air and it's tucked in that much! How does the 23" ride at slow speeds like when stopping or taking a slow corner? I'm considering one, but am unsure of how much rideability I will lose by doing so.

Welcome to CB! That's a gorgeous color man. I love the speakers in the back, how does it sound?

So It's lowered 2" with the progressive lowering springs. As far as ride and corners, i'm comfortable on it. I have been riding this 23" for some time and am confident in its performance and ability. Excited to get the Air on there and Really slam it. This pic is also PRE Fairing bracket 1.75" Lowering which I just got done! I have ridden this bike with that 23" around lake Michigan, no problems!

It's at Dupor Customs in IL here getting fine tuned and should be back this week, but according to what he said "It's going to blow you away". Dave is a very particular builder and an absolute Audio Nut, so I can't wait to hear it and take my victory lap when i get her back !

That's awesome. It's a really nice bike! I want to do the 23" but I really like my nice easy ride with it stock. I need to make up my mind though haha.

You have nothing to worry about. I never once thought "man, i regret putting a 23" on my bike" Nope. Im planning on doing a 23" fat tire for the Road king soon
