GD, that seat is FUGLY!

Hey all - lurking for a while but really my first post - please be gentle...

I have the 2016 RG Ultra and I finally installed the detachable Tour Pack kit for my solo rides (just installed it in about 2.5 hrs). I was surprise how much the tour pack weighed and can't wait to get on the bike without it; expecting a much different ride.

Anyway, I have the stock touring seat and without the tour pack the bike looks like an abortion - see below.

I was curious if anyone else has done this and had a recommendation on a replacement seat, maybe even a solo seat.

Thanks in advance/JG

I went with a HD solo tour, or click in a passenger backrest if my wife is along.





Don't have a picture of the road glide with the stock seat and backrest, but here is the road glide seat on the road king with the backrest and luggage rack.

I picked up a seat from a Road King for short money. It's sort of like the seat that's on the street glides, with the sloped back rear seat. I put that on when I take the tour pak off and I'm riding solo.

Thanks for the warm welcome. We're in Morris County and usually scoot to PA and upstate NY for our rides - as a driver in this state you know how the roads here are a death trap. We love Bucks Co and make a coupla runs to New Hope every now and then.

Seats

I have 3 seats to chose from but really like the '16 CVO 2 piece I scarfed from a cat in SC for $400 SHIPPED to my door, it really sits well and looks great on my '12 too, just need that custom backrest for it...

Do you like the comfort of your stock seat? If so, check out the road glide special and the street glide special seats. The rear is slanted back and it looks pretty decent.

Yep. This is why I have 3 seats. Each one has a different look and purpose!

I have a Mustang solo on mine, but purchased the 2-piece with rear pillion that is only installed when running the Tour-Pak. Pics here.
