Depends. On my Street Rod a shock like that would interfere with my saddlebags. If I rotated the shock 180 degrees so the reservoir was facing forward (dorky, but hey) the reservoir would foul the passenger peg bracket.
The reservoir buys you some compression adjustability but what I have found is that on my bikes that have reservoir shocks, once I set compression damping I never change it. I only fool with rebound damping, and even then only two or three clicks around my base setting.
I live in a parallel universe but have a vacation home in reality.
