Need Opinion

Have the opportunity to purchase a Road Zeppelin for the 16 RGU. The seller just didn't like the way he sat on it for his street glide. I swapped the seat out at purchase ( don't remember but I think Electraglide- has a huge scoop in the saddle.) Wicked miserable!! but like the height.
At 5'9"" do you think I will have a problem with touching the ground?
Any ideas?
Thanks!

It's a massive seat that sits you well up. You might want to test it out first.

I tried one for my bike, sat me up a few inches, didn't like the seating position.

2012 Road Glide Custom Vivid Black named "Becky" with a simple motto "If it came from the factory like that, it doesn't belong on the bike!"

I have one on my RGU, I brought it over from my 2011 Limited.

I think the seat is great, but it took a long time to figure it out, starting in 2007 with my first Road Zep seat.
The long story short is keep very little air in the seat.

My wife never complains about being uncomfortable, I even reach down and add or remove some air just to see if she
is paying attention to her butt. She just slaps my head and puts the air back to where she likes it.

I'm 5'10"

HD has a seat demo program so go down to your dealer and see if they have that seat available for a demo.
