Legend Suspension Aero-A Air Suspension For Harley Touring 1999-2016
very well made for the consumer
I'm 5' 5" and own a 2015 Road King. I initialy had 11.5" Progressive shocks on my bike which were fine but wasn't quite low where I wanted to be, and the rebound was somewhat "bouncy." Install is quick with the right tools. Very well made shocks just by looking at the exterior. Now, riding on the highway is much more comfortable knowing I can adjust the firmness of the ride with a push of the button, and dialing in the rebound. I can firmly plant both feet on the ground safely after installing these air shocks which has always been a concern when stationary and moving the bike with my legs and feet. Buying these are pricey but the end result is well worth it. Plus, the cool factor of dropping the rear end at the push of a button is sweet!

All I Can Say Is Wow!
*NOTE* The photos that are attached with my review were taken after the full installation. So no photos during the installation are available.
I purchased the Aero-A Air Suspension and paired it with the Legends AEXO High-Performance Front Suspension Kit along with the optional Chrome Handlebar Switch and the optional Brushed Aluminum Air Gauge for my 2006 FLHTCUSE CVO just before Christmas in 2015 as a present to myself.
As my headline states "All I Can Say Is Wow!"
I would say that I'm more of an aggressive rider and the combination of the Aero A and the AXEO fork suspension kit performs and handles much like my 2009 Kawasaki Concours Sport Touring motorcycle. The bike feels more confident in all aspects of riding.
Having the ability to adjust my ride height and ride experience from the handlebar control while riding the bike and not having to take my eyes off the road or take my hands off the handlebar is awesome. Go from a low-riding cruising style riding situation while you're just cruising the blvd, in a parade or a rally, to aired up full on let's hit the interstate or lets get down and dirty in the turns. The bike has never handled or rode better, not even when it was purchased new!
I am completely satisfied with my decision with the Aero-A air suspension and AXEO high performance front suspension setup. I would definitely be recommending this setup to my Harley riding friends.
The setup wasn't cheap, but I would just say this, if you can afford the get this setup (Aero-A Air Suspension and Axeo Front Suspension), you will not be disappointed. Installation isn't difficult as long as you have the right tools for the job. i.e.: Jack, wrenches, patience etc...
*Note - The optional Chrome Handlebar Switch and the Optional Brushed Aluminum Air Gauge are exactly that, optional! But they are a welcome option, especially the Brushed Aluminum Air Gauge. Once you find that sweet spot (Idea Air Pressure) with the gauge while riding, it's visually easy to get back there.
The folks here at Revzilla are great also. Fast free shipping and great customer service.

Fantastic suspension kit!
Although quite expensive, and something I'd easily label as a luxury item, this Legend suspension kit is one of my favorite features on my bike now.
Keep in mind, I'm no mechanic. I'm simply a DIY believer. After watching the helpful installation video on the RevZilla YouTube channel (thanks again Lemmy!), I had enough confidence to tackle this install. It was fairly easy. The most difficult thing I remember about the install was probably running the air lines up to the optional gauge in the fairing. But even that was pretty easy. As long as you follow the manufacture's instructions and take your time, this install should be easily accomplished by most people.
Everything works well. Adjusting the suspension using the handlebar controls to increase or decrease the pressure is very convenient. The only issue I've noticed is that over time (a few weeks) the system seems to lose pressure. Clearly that means there's a slow leak somewhere in my system. I might be able to remedy the slow leak if I were to conduct a thorough system check. But, since it's such a slow leak, and I can easily add pressure to the system with the push of a button, I don't plan on addressing this issue right now.
It's expensive, but RevZilla seems to have competitive pricing. Adding the benefit of Zilla cash helps a little too.
