The Harley-Davidson Road Glide® Custom motorcycle is a classic touring bike with a slammed design and custom hot rod style. In order for the bike to handle well, it needs good shocks.
Rick Doss of Rick Doss, Inc. utilizes Suspension Technologies shocks on these bikes because they work so well. They keep you in the saddle longer, allows you to get through the turns faster… and maybe the most important aspect of the shock, it keeps your honey smiling.
