Sundowner, Tallboy, Daddy Long Legs
So I have an 09 and when it's just me, I run the HD CVO Solo Seat...LOVE that seat! When I ride 2 up or take long-multi day trips, I have used the HD Sundowner for the past several years and it works ok. Since I put my new, higher bars on this winter, I am feeling way to close to the tank when riding (I always did with the Sundowner, but it was not too bad). I have been considering getting a HD Tallboy or a Lepera Daddy Long Legs for 2 up and trips when my tourpack is on. I had the opportunity to try the Tallboy seat this past Friday from the Demo Seats on a day trip to NY with my wife. I will say that the Tallboy is very similar to the Sundowner, except I gain 2" and she looses 2", so for me it was good and because the Mrs is small, she had no complaints at all. This seat did exactly what I wanted it to do, move me back 2". Now I have been looking at the Daddy Long Legs seat too, problem is, I can not find one to "try" without purchase, and I honestly question if the Mrs would really like that one compared to the Tallboy for her. The Tall boy is over $100 cheaper, not that cheap matters for a seat, just saying. I am pretty sure I am going to just order that Tallboy and call it a day, as I would really only run the seat 4-5 times a year, as stated, my solo without tourpack is mostly how I ride.
Nothing more than a quick rant about seats here. Not looking for comments, unless you want to provide something, but I figured others may read this before deciding on what to do also. FYI, I am 6'2" and 225lbs with a 36" inseam and monkey arms (per the Mrs).
