Have my 2017 Road Glide on order

Trading up from an 06 Road King to a 17 Road Glide Ultra

Need guidance for changing the seat. Have the Tall Boy on the 06 however tried the Tall Boy on the Road Glide I found that the Stock seat was better but not just right. I'm 6'02 and find myself pushing back on the stock seat. Thanks

Congratulations on the new ride, and welcome to the forum from Florida! Good luck on finding that "just right" seat.

Congrats welcome to the forum. LePera daddy long legs has good reviews from other forum members. Not the model of LePera that I have. I'm not tall.

Welcome. Will be watching this for a good solution. I just bought a 2017 RGU, and feel a little cramped. So far I have the floor boards moved forward an inch, and just ordered the extenders to move them out an inch. If that doesn't solve the problem, will be looking for a better seat position. Thinking about a Hammock.

congrats on the 17 and welcome to the forum. I'm just shy of your height and went with a Corbin solo. Moved me back and down, Hugh improvement in comfort and quality. Good Luck

Welcome to the forum.
Stop in the dealership . Any HD dealer worth a dam has demo seats. You put it on your bike and ride. Then try the next one. Cost your nothing . If you ride two up take her with you to try them.
If you don't find what you are looking for at least it helps figure out what you do need. Same with windshields and pipes.
