Found a seat- Lepera Outcast

Some of you saw my issues with the c&c solo seat, but I figured that thread had run its course. I ended up with a lepera outcast with backrest. The seat is designed as a rider seat with a minimal passenger pillion. I was about to order a new one but found one used on hdforum for $300 less. I was more than willing to give it a try considering the amount of seats most people go through to find the right one. If I hate it, I can pass on the good deal a forum member and only be out shipping costs.

So far, after a 50 minute trip, I like it. It is the standard model, not daddy long legs. It fits me just right. I had read it should be real close to stock position, but I feel like it's lower at least an inch and back an inch as well from my '13 rgc seat. Here are some pictures.

Looks great. Glad you got a good deal. I love my LePera, one of the best upgrades.

Thanks guys! So far so good, the real test will be the 3000 mile shark week trip. I am hoping to get a few 2-300 mile trips in before that.

I have done a couple of 200 mile rides and I still like it. I don't think it's going to be a 5-600 mile seat without pain though. I have a feeling all of the cool looking lower profile seats are like this. I am contemplating an airhawk or polymer butt buffer to help on my trip to shark week. Leaning towards the butt buffer since it doesn't add a lot of seat height, I have short legs, so every bit counts.
