    Dirty or Skully Air ride?

    Does anyone currently run either set up? If so, how do you like it, what problems if any do you have?

    I'm new to this and have read hundreds of pages of forums on air ride. I have a few questions if somebody can help.

    Currently I have a 2006 street glide with a 21 inch front wheel and extended bags. I weigh 240 pounds and the girlfriend weighs approximately 150 pounds.

    I'm looking at going with either Dirty air or Skully air. Dirty air offers the fast up tank option as where Skully doesn't which is a feature I want.

    Here's a list of my worries if somebody can please help me out.

    1. Several people have stated that at full extension the dirty air and skully are both hitting either the axle nut or the mufflers or the transmission case. Are there any fixes for this? One person said they put lowering blocks on it to keep this from happening and haven't had any problems with it. IMO that would eliminate the safety stop feature of bottoming out in a emergency situation if you were to loose all air pressure.

    2. A lot of people are saying that you have to ride at a very high air pressure which makes the ride quality very stiff and uncomfortable if riding two up with a lot of weight, is this true? I live in Indianapolis and we do a lot of street riding and touring around our state (the state with the worst and most pot hole filled roads in America) with he occasional yearly trip to the dragon.

    Honestly I just want a better ride quality over the blown stock shocks and am looking at these two companies because I can not afford the shotgun system even though I would own it in a heartbeat if I could.

    Thank you in advance for the replies and guidance everyone.
