Need a new seat

I think I have narrowed it down 2 these two?
Le Pera Maverick w/ backrest OR Mustang One-Piece Summit Seat w/backrest

Looking for Comments with reasons. I'm 5'11".... I mostly ride on long trips. Once a month I take a 3-4 day weekend and usually put 1700+ miles on the bike. I borrowed a Saddlemen Road Sofa and the seat was too narrow.. Firmness was good but just no moving around... The stock seat basically sucks... I'm planning to take an 12 day trip out west at the end July and would like not to have to take the Saddlemen

I love Mustang seats, in fact I just bought another one from a fellow forum member this week. I sometimes ride distances also, and the Mustang has always been a seat that I can go all day and not be sore. Of course everyone is not the same and opinions vary.

After reading the forum reviews, I purchased a custom LePera Monterey. I could not be happier with my choice.

Riderduke, I have a LePera Maverick Stitched with Rider Backrest and have to say it is a very well constructed seat.
I haven't had the opportunity to take a ride with it yet, just finishing up all my winter mods but sitting on it it is a firm but comfortable seat.
I got mine on eBay from Performance Machines for a great price.
It's worth searching eBay to see if you are as lucky as I was if that's the seat you decide to go with.
Hope this helps.
Best of Luck on Your decision.

I loved the Mustang I put on my old EGC. Put a hammock on this one, no complaints whatsoever, the wife likes it better. Done a couple 500 mile days with no issues, with 300-400 the day before and after. I liked the Mustang slightly better, but like I said no complaints at all about the hammock. It just seemed like they used my ass for the mold on the mustang.

I have a Mustang Summit with driver backrest. 500 mile days no problem. The seat will move you back from the stock location around 2 inches. That's why I like it so much. I just purchased a heated Harley Hammock seat also for the wife to keep her tush warm on cold days.

Might you be interested in my HD signature Series Solo Seat?
Ill make you a good deal.
Take a look.

I love the seat, very comfy but sat me up too high for my taste.
The passenger pillion which isn't very expensive is very comfy as well.
The seat is 16 inches wide I believe. Stock is 14 I think.

So far I'm not a fan of HD seats. I find them too soft. I'll get by my dealer this weekend and check that seat out and see how I like it and check out the passenger seat. What would be shipping to 22407?
