Brown or black seat?

Bike as it currently sits (vivid black) with black exhaust, black air cleaner, black pass pegs. Powder coating the crash bars black and some other small parts. Brown or black seat?

I thought hard about putting a distressed brown leather seat on my fat boy but don't think it would look right on the glide.

If your asking I'll say go black.

IMO a brown seat just stands out to much on a blacked out bike.

Once again IMO.

If you had a theme going on a lite colored bike then maybe.

Good Luck

I most probably agree. I think brown would look great on a blue bike.

I would go with black. If you want to see how brown would look as dealer if the have a brown demo seat or wrap the existing seat with a brown cloth to get an idea before buying brown.

Motor and Trans are all black, frame is black, putting on a brown seat would def make it POP and stand out, I'd go with a black seat for better color flow.

I saw a black RG with a black seat with some details in dark brown (Corbine-coop seat).
Looks great!!!

I put the brown solo on mine at the dealer just to see. Mine is Black Quartz. It was OK. But looked better on the red one we took it off of to try it. As you can see I opted for the black one. Looks much better.

I contemplated the brown seat on my blue bike, but went with black.

I say put a brown one on at the dealer and decide for yourself.

On a pearl white bike, brown is a no brainer.
