Short rider solo seat help!

I am 5'6" and looking for a solo seat for my '15.. I was going to pick up the danny gray speed cradle but was recommended not to due to comfort reasons. I was also told to start with the seat and then work the bars. so here I am needing suggestions on a seat that will sit me close enough to be comfortable on the bike, allow me to be flat footed at stop lights, feel at least a little comfortable on my keister and looks badass.

appreciate the help in advance!

I have a drag specialties solo seat and couldn't be happier.
You might want to check them out.
Good Luck

i'd really like to check out that drag spec seat. looks really good.

another option is the cvo solo seat from the 2012 cvo roadglide customs. I was using one of those before I got my cvo, and have transferred the cvo seat to the wife's bike. we rode from Louisiana to no Virginia over 3 days (2 long, 1 short) and had no issues.

52400024 black/grey pillion

52000043 brown/gold seat
52400025 brown/gold pillion

52000056 black/gold seat
52400038 black/gold pillion


for the best pricing, contact jon at hornytoad hd on these seats. I've purchased 2 of them over the past couple of years. service and price can't be beat.

just because I can't seem to leave well enough alone, I am also interested in the corbin Hollywood solo. I know the standard corbin is pretty comfortable, but it does raise me up just a little and being on the short side myself, that was unacceptable. the Hollywood sits a little lower than the standard solo.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

he is also the third person to recommend that same exact seat. It's gotta be legit, right? the dude I talked to at Paul Yaffe's shop in phoenix is 5'7'' and recommended the seat to me. I also, bought the same PY monkey bars he has on his bike. should be golden, pony boy!
