The thread title pretty much says it all, i would really appreciate an explanation of how progressive front fork springs benefit or improve daily riding on our vtxs. I dont want the usual, oh they are so great, or oh the ride is amazing, oh i love them, blah blah blah, i want to know WHY and HOW they improve the ride of a stock vtx. Thanks if you can tell me. :choppersm Bry

I have the exact same bike as you (except color) and felt that the progressive springs were a great improvement to the handling because it keeps the front wheel planted on the ground. No more bottoming out with that hopping feeling when hitting a bump in a curve. Stiffer, yes, but well worth it.
