In my experience, HD's on my V8q with stock springs, the ride
is ridiculous around town.  You will feel every little imperfection
to the point that it feels jiggly.  I guess I wouldn't call it harsh,
but it's far from comfortable.  On the highway, even at high
speeds, it never settles down.  The only thing that smooths it
out is weight... passengers and/or luggage.
