My Raleigh has a rear shock with 2.25" of travel and I was wondering if that was considered soft or what?
The amount of travel has nothing to do with the softness of it, I'm not sure I understand your question fully.

I think the op is asking if the stroke of the shock effects the stiffness or softness of the suspension"travel". If so, the answer is no
