Progressive shocks for R1150GS??

In the market for a set of shocks. Keep seeing these progressive brand on ebay at an attractive price. Anybody running them? Can't find any threads talking about them.

I posed the same question sometime last year and didn't get any replies. My experiences with Progressives in the past have been so-so. I wound up going with a Hyperpro on the rear and a Yacugar (re-branded Hyperpro) on the front. I wanted the Yacugar on the front because they use straight-rate springs where as Hyperpro uses a progressively wound spring. Ted Porter (link below) had a pretty nice sale going on Yacugars a few months back. Might only cost you a couple hundred bucks more total versus Progressive. I think that's money well spent on these old 1150's.

I have a full set of Yacugars on my 1150. Ted Porter suggested that I not get progressive springs with the BMW suspension but don't remember why. The Yacugar are basically a Wilbers and Hyperpro hybrid. Porters shop is great to deal with.
