Looking for a solo seat that sits you back.

I'm ready to buy a solo seat and I'm leaning towards a Corbin because it sit's you back an inch and down an inch. Don't care about the height I'm 6'1 so I got plenty of leg I just want to go back a little. I worry the Corbin for touring might be too hard. I got a corbin on my other bike and it's great for quick trips but after 150 miles or so I get squirmy. Just want to see what other options I have for a long legged guy.

I've owned a Mustang Vintage solo. Nice seat. But stiff. Sits down and back a bit. My Saddleman dominator solo sat you up and forward. Looked good but may as well been sitting on bricks. Worst seat ever. I now have the p&a cvo solo seat. Down at least an inch. More likely and back about 2" and I can go tank to tank as far as comfort. It's a softer seat. And it looks great.

Corbin classic solo here, many-many mile days with no issues.

Good luck with your search.

I have a LePera Monterey solo sits you back & down about an inch or two. I have detailed reviews in other posts.
LePera has three different touring solo seats with the Monterey being the largest.

Echo the mustang super solo. I was not all that enamored with it till I changed my bars and realized my biggest problem was the bars not the seat. I can do 500 easy in a day. No problem.

is that the 52000248 seat? hard to tell from the small pic...I wonder,too,if the 52000249 is the same seat but without the "stitching"? I like the looks of that seat better than the super solo.

I don't mean to hijack this thread,but thought I'd ask.
