Ohlin BM141, Who has them?

Anyone got any feedback on Ohlins BM 141 piggy back shocks.
Looks like they need to have piggyback mounted forward to clear panniers.
Currently have Ikon/Konis

Biebs: yes they are pricey but I'd like to see what really good suspension is like and NZ roads are pretty rough.

Solo Lobo: Cheers for the heads up, best price I could get to Noo Zeeland was over nine hundy, can buy a lot of sheep for that

I have them installed on my bike. I've been very pleased with them. Top quality for sure. I'm selling them anyways. If you need more info just let me know, I'm happy to help you.

I went with the non piggyback ones in the end.
The blend in rather than stand out.
