Seat issues

The wife hates the seat on my 2017 RGS. She liked my seat on my Honda 1300 Retro better because she said she sat higher and could see over my head. Has anyone had issues like this and if so can anyone recommend a seat that gets her up higher? I know Mustang has seats that are narrower for me and will get the driver closer to the road and looks pretty comfortable and wider for the passenger ,, but doesn't look like the passenger will get up higher,,, any suggestions... for height and comfort concerns?? Thanks DAWG

Any of the big Harley Touring seats will increase the height of the passenger. Look at Ultra seats or even the Hammock or Sundowner. But pretty much any aftermarket seat is going to be more substantial than the stocker. Be careful though, as a lot of times if you end up getting a seat that makes the passenger comfy, the driver hates it.

Luckily your local dealer will let you demo some seats. Take em out for a test run.

My girl says the same about the stock seat. But I am ok with how it feels.
