Default Best low profile seat for your glide

First off I wanna say I'm honored to be on this site. Road glides are the best bikes in the world and that's why it's no surprise that the people on this site are so great! I have a 2011 RGC and I have the factory seat on it and its time for a change. It's hard to pick a seat because they aren't cheap and there's really no way to try them out so I really will trust what anyone has to say on this site. I had a lepera villain solo and I got rid of it. I wanna go with a 2 up now. I was set on the silhouette, and then I saw the king cobra, and then C&C, then Mustang, Corbin, and so on. I really don't care about the manufacture but what I do care about is it has to be low profile. I want the seat that's gonna sit me down and back the furthest. Is anyone knows what seat does that I would appreciate a response, thanks

Take a look at the Danny Gray seats. I picked one up from a member on this site and couldn't be happier. I'm 6' 2" and this seat puts me back a little farther than my stock seat (2011 Ultra) and of course a little lower. Good luck!

You say you had a LePera Villain solo? Did you like that seat?? I have the LePera Super Villain on my 2011 RGC. Sits nice and low for the rider and the passenger section is wider and more padded that the regular Villain. The Mrs. likes it better than the stock seat for comfort....so that is a bonus. It fits the lines of the RGC rear fender without looking huge.

I really didn't like the villain solo. I think the 2 up would be more comfortable. The villain 2up is def an option!
