Thanks for sharing that.
My 2000 XL1200 C is running their progressive wound front springs and mounts their 440 series rear shocks. My 2006 XL1200 R runs with their progressive wound springs, their Gold Valve Emulators and a set of their 440 series shocks on the rear as well.

Just to give you an update- my 440's on the '06"R" were clapped out,(yeah go figure as I only put 100,000 miles on them), so they were returned to Progressive for refurbishing. The "lifetime warranty" is a good thing. At their option they chose to return to me a new set of their 444's , a step up from the 440's, they have an automatic variable dampening feature as opposed to the 2 stage dampening on the 440's. I was able to give them a good workout in September during a 5 day 2,000 mile camping expedition across Ontario in the company of to great Canadians. I pleased to report that they are the cats azz a definite improvement on the already superb 440's. Dampening was great and their proved to be much less sensitive to spring preload under varying loads. A big thumbs up to "PROGRESSIVE" they allow me to keep going down the road in spite of my ailments.
