I have Race Tech Springs and Cartridge emulators on my 1996 Triumph Trophy. I don't know if that's the same thing as Gold Emulators.
They were a big improvement on the Trophy. Maybe sust ever so over firm, for a touring bike. I would they were a little more compliant, but overall, I'm very happy with them.
But unless I'm talked out of it, I'm going to try the Monotubes for my FLHR. No particular reasons or expectation, except that seems to be what everyone gets.
