    For a bike you plan to ride....Roadwing for about $275 and progressive/racetech front springs w/gold emulators and the appropriate fork oil is the best you can do air ride adds weight and complexity and won't handle very well and is $$$.

      My opinion is that air ride looks good on show bikes, but if I owned a system I would run the center stand you drop the air ride onto. If the system had a leak the bike would be unrideable. That was enough reason for myself to stop looking at air ride. Besides I look just as cool when I let the air out of my tires when I arrive.

        Yeah, I don’t have any personal experience with air ride but I do with the Roadwing. No way in hell I would put air ride in anything but a show bike. And even then, I still wouldn’t.

        Roadwing improves even a brand new stock Roadstar ride quality by quite a bit (personal experience). The rear shock is only good if you are pretty light and only ride single. Anything else and it sucks compared to a Roadwing.
