Get an ironhead if you want something to work on that also rocks out loud.

and welcome to the forum from Queensland, Australia.
Nice bike! Did it come with the 11.5" rear shocks or the 13.25"? Looks like the longer ones, which I'm sure your wife will be pleased about.
I tend to agree with Ed, you are going to need a tonne of will (or won't) power with all of the enablers here egging you on. I'll start with suspension option suggestions if you'd like

Not sure what length they are. I have them cranked up pretty high to carry my fat butt.

They would be the longer ones... as for all international versions from 2016 up...
You in your signature wrote 2015... but your bike looks like a 2016...

I keep forgetting that it's a 2016 because I picked it up in November 2015.

I'll add my welcome here...

It would be good to update your model information to reflect that...
Login - then >>CLICK HERE<<


Also, take a minute and please put at least your state/country in the LOCATION FIELD of your profile so we can better help you when you need it - Your climate, temps & altitude can make a difference to suggested fixes... (the STATE FIELD does not show on posts so you need to use the LOCATION FIELD)...

CLICK HERE - then scroll down to 'Additional Information' and look for the field labeled 'LOCATION' - put your information in there - It will then show on each post you make... Look for this:
