I may be loosing my mind here but I swear the shock went out on the way home today. It started on the freeway I noticed smaller bumps seem to get harder on me. Then as I got off the freeway I noticed I could hold the bike flat footed. Typically, being vertically challenged I can only do so when riding 2 up. I'm going to check the tire pressure when they cool but it sure seems strange. Is it possible for the shock to loose adjustment?

I'm not sure - it definitely sounds like something's up. Keep us updated on this and hopefully it's not much wrong.

The only way for the shock to lose it's adjustment would be for the locking nut to come loose allowing the adjusting collar to back off. Not likely to happen. The seals in the shock could fail and may be evident by oil leaking around the chrome shaft. Take the plastic side covers off and look at the shock. It is very easy to see. Better check it out before you ride again so you don't get wrecked!
