If you can come up with a shock that has the correct compression/rebound properties, travel, and weight capacity, and it will fit, you can put whatever you want in there. The problem is that the Goldwing is a very heavy bike, and a lot of shocks either won't fit or don't have the capacity.

My bike is fitted with Hagon's. Can't praise them enough.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
