So after a few pavement rides I'm sold on this product. It does not effect the handling much at all at speed. As stated earlier, for some really strange reason the bike is way more balanced at slow speed. I've tried it at soft and hard preload settings and it's "lighter feeling" and easier to maneuver . I have not taken it off the pavement yet. That will be the big test.

Looking forward to your thoughts post-ride Chris.
I'm sold on these!! I just got done with a 1300+ mile ride and they worked out fantastic. The bike is really stable and it helped with ground clearance in the rocks. My next step is to drop off my bike at RT and have the suspension rebuilt, re-valved, and re-sprung. But for now I'm going to keep running it until my fork bushings wear out or I get 10,000 miles out of it. I was fully loaded down with panniers and had no issues at all with frequent bottoming out or the bike handling strange.
