Just to follow up: I rode the 1200S but didn't buy it. It had a lot more grunt than my 883, but that was all that seemed blatantly better about it. (Yes I've done suspension work to mine). I just...

Your post is bogus. That would never work. You don't even have one piece of Twisted Throttle equipment on those bikes. Strapping shit on and just going somewhere ... what an absurd idea. :D

Yep. Stock wheels with Road King shocks and heavy duty Progressive springs up front. Also a skid plate. It's no dirt bike, but I've taken it places you wouldn't normally take a street bike. :D
