Ohlins for Harley touring bikes - anybody got them?

So I am planning on upgrading the suspension on my road glide custom.

I will be getting the Ohlins (I am a Ohlins loyalist) and am trying to decided between the hd159 and hd357.

Does anybody have either of these shocks and can you comment?

Thanks but have already been on that website. I am hoping to get some real life feedback.

I have always bought all of my Ohlins stuff from http://www.fastbikeindustries.com/

The owner was a long time Ohlins employee and has always given me great service and pricing.

Indeed. Howard is the way to go. Great service, great support and the improvement in ride quality is pretty dramatic.
