    I have a 06 Sporty with stock rear shocks & go on long rides & I am 225 Pounds my question is would it be worth spending the money for better shocks? Like 412 Sereis for $299.00 or 418 for $494.00 or 440 I.S.A $590.00. That is a big price range, but how much better would say the 418 over the...
