Solo Seats

Hey guys,
Ive looked over the site for info pertaining to solo seats and I have a few questions....

Im looking for a solo seat that isnt 3 feet high and has a longer and wider measurement than the stock seat.
Basically looking for a low profile seat that is longer and wider than stock. I need more room.
Ive used Corbin in the past on other bikes but cant spend 6 bills right now.
Ive looked at the Mustang Wide Tripper solo on ebay and the Saddleman Dominator.

Any feedback on these and are there some other choices I might want to look at for what Im looking for?
Danny Gray bigist?

Thanks guys

I have a Mustang that I'm completely happy with, I also like that I can put the passenger pilot on if I should need it.

I went with a LePera Monterey on my 15 RG. Sits me down & back about an inch or two. Butt area wider than stock nose is narrower. Can be with or without backrest.
Pricy but worth it. Mine was a custome order. Had Corbin on a sportster, would not get another one.

Don't buy the Saddleman Dominator. It sits you up. It sucks. It's a hard seat too. That gel is like a rock. I just sold mine.

I'm getting the CVO solo seat. Sits ya down and back a bit. And from what everyone says. It's comfortable. My buddy just bought a 12 CVO RG. He has a Mustang Solo from his other bike he kept. He's selling the Mustang because he likes the CVO solo better.

I had a Mustang Vintage wide solo on my SG. Good for about an hour and I had to get off. My ass hurt.

I went with a Drag Specialties solo seat and couldn't be happier.

Sits me down 1-1/2" & 1" back.

Good Luck In Your Search.

instead of limiting your options why don't you wait until you have the funds your perfect seat

Nothing says I can't have more than 1 seat.
Its more about buying a 600 dollar plus seat sight unseen.
Plus, Im not crazy about the looks of their solo seats.
I mentioned them because even though Corbin makes a hard seat I found them comfortable. Did a 15 hour day on one with my r1200rt.
It was more of a reference for others to advise me, but point well taken. I may get a Corbin at some point.
