Question Struts Vs. Cut shocks

Where are your pics at? Do the struts make it a much rougher ride? I love the way struts make the bike look, but I really don't want to sacrifice too much ride comfort. At least with the shocks I will have a little cushion for bumps. Anybody prefer one method over the other? I guess I can live with being a newbie for awhile!

Here are my pics... http://www.shadowriders.net/forums/v...?do=view&id=27

I run a little bit less preassure on the back tire, the ride is a little bit rougher but I didn't find it all that different...but my wife is another story... if you are going to be with a passanger most of the time I recommend the shocks. With the struts I feel what the motorcycles does better... I lost traction once and I felt it right away and was able the make the correction without dumping the bike. If you are going the shock route I wil advice to get progressive instead of cutting them. The progressive are shorter but still stiff enough to go with the bumps on the road. Cutting them gives you the look but the will give more travel because the will loose stiffnes and the suspension will bottom out more. If you are going solo there is nothing to fear with struts. But I am still young and can take some abuse :-)

Talking Still lowering

Alright I've done some research but am still not sure what I want to do. I have checked out that company Scootworks with their rear lowering kit. I have a cat eye brake light and they say to use the 1.5" kit but I just don't think that will give me the look I want. The 2.5" kit is the one I want but does anyone have this setup and an undertail brake light or do I need to get a different brake light? Also anyone have a subframe I can chop up for a good price, I really want to save mine just in case and need to modify the subframe for the 200 tire setup. Thanks!!!!
