@ Coiln is your wife on a RG? When you say you lowered it are you talking about shorter shocks? I have the RG custom.

No the wife is not on a RG, she is on a 1200 custom.

Roughly 1 inch difference in stock seat heights BUT once she added the Mustang seat she was up over the RG height.
Seating position & bars make a huge difference in comfort.

there are lowering kits for the tour bikes that use the same shock but change the angle, good for a 1" drop anything lower I would do shocks.

Support your local economy by going local. Why support others while you can give your business locally.

Im pretty sure mean city cycles do a good job on the seats but I would rather talk to a real person up front and tell me what my actual needs are instead of filling out a worksheet and wasting most of my money on shipping costs.

I can get behind that idea. My new LePera Aviator will be undergoing some upgrades at my local hot rod auto upholstery shop soon.

Maybe you can't buy happiness but you can buy a motorcycle and that's pretty darn close.
