Yet another seat recommendation

Hello friends. I'm searching for a seat. I could use a little more comfortable but my ol lady could really use more seating area than my stock seat.

So what I'm looking for is a seat that sits as close to the stock position as possible.Yesterday I tried a stock Electra seat and it was better but too high and too far forward.

Maybe a used sundowner and send it to Mean City Cycles to have it modified the way you want?

What bike do you have? If itís not an ultra, you can pick up an ultra seat cheap and then like the other guy said, ship off to MCC. A really nice seat will cost you 600-800 and itís not custom. If you get a stock ultra and have it modified for you and lady, probably between 500-600 and custom

If you have a quality local dealer, they should have many seats for you to demo with your passenger. A hundred mile ride should let you know if you like the seat or not.

I'm going to go by my dealer one day and demo some seats

Getting the ultra seat and getting it worked on is a good idea. Thanks

I've always like the way the saddlemen rs seat looks but I've heard some bad reviews of them so I'm torn

Yes it will work great. HD seats are interchangeable from 2008 to present.
