Has anyone tried these yet? https://dirtyworks-kc.com/products/d...luminum-shocks

I am wondering how is the ride for a light rider?
I have them and love them. Not sure how light, light is, but I am 175 and they are great. Got costume length ones, same collapsed length as the monroe, but one inch shorter extended length. They are 1000% better than the monroe, actually have some rebound and don't hit as hard if you bottom.

I use my streetglide for touring but I am only 5'4" and 125 lbs so the idea of being able to drop the bike when in tight areas is a plus but I need a better ride then I am currently getting with the Monroe shocks

I use the full stealth system from them and it's a real pleasure to ride with it. They also got a fantastic customer service.

No comparison between the Aluminum body shocks and the Monroe's. Try a set as you will not be disappointed.

Could you comment on how these shocks would ride compared to legend air or Arnott shocks?

The aluminum touring shocks by dirty air, are they gas charged? I can’t find any real details on the shocks. Just the lengths

I am currently running xotic air ride shocks. There custom made for xotic by Monroe and are basically the corvette shocks everyone uses except with a shorter extended length so there is no contact with exhaust. I really like the versatility of the air ride since I am only 5'4" but I am tired of the rough ride. I am thinking something different and saw the above mentioned aluminum touring shocks from dirty air. Does anyone have first hand experience with an alternative that might be better.

I had the Arnott adjustable shocks and they were terrible. I tried the first generation Legends . They weren't bad, they just didn't last. I tried the second generation Legends and they were harsh. My issue with most of the shocks is the lack of travel. For a short travel shock I like the inexpensive
Arnott Bilsteins. Arnott now has an extended travel shock that I've yet to try. So I'd go with the Dirty Air aluminum body shocks or the Arnott extended travel (4" I think).

You'd would have to call them and ask. They are definitely more than just air.

Have you checked out the New American Suspension Rear Shocks yet? I have installed a few and really like them so far.......
