You might also consider changing the fork oil. Different fork oil weights were discussed in this thread.

My '17 Road King did have a firm ride, which I remedied somewhat by reverting to air shocks from a prior model.  The original shocks didn't have an air adjustment.

I still hear from the buyer every now and then, along with pictures showing the bike parked in front of scenery on his trip.  He still thanks me for selling him the bike.  He and his wife flew out, bought the bike and rode it back to Minneapolis.  The problems (?) were obviously with me, not the bike.   :o I do miss it.   

I still keep an I eye out for a nice, bone stock 14-16 RK.   ::)

Check out Legend Shocks, I put them on my EG and the ride really improved.

One of our members, @Rider Ron , had some similar complaints about the shocks on a 2018 Road King that he bought. He felt that the ride was too harsh. I tagged him so maybe he will come along and comment. I think he did a few posts on the forum about his issue.

I will assume that you have experimented with the rear shocks preload adjustment knob that the new Touring models come with.  Some info on the preload knob is in this thread...

Touring Shocks Preload Adjustment

On your model year you should also have an air pressure adjustment on the rear shocks. The above thread talks about the air pressure adjustment as well. Be careful not to use a high pressure air supply to service the rear shocks. The hand pumps that HD offers and are also available in the aftermarket are also explained in the above linked thread.
