Solo Seat?

So looks like my wife doesn't want to ride anymore with me. So need a solo seat that doesn't push me back or raise me (prefer Mustang). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I really like my Harley Low profile solo touring seat. https://www.harley-davidson.com/stor...o-touring-seat

You can test ride it at your local Harley dealer. It does sit you lower than stock so your knees will be a little more bent but is very comfortable and you feel like you are 'in' the bike.

I've had several different Mustang solo seats over the years and have been happy. One of the things I really like is the ability to have a seamless integration of a backrest with it. Off for short rides and on for longer rides. Nothing wrong with Mustang.

That is a nice looking seat for sure, looks very much like the 2012 Road Glide CVO seat

I have a mustang super wide solo. At 6'1" it sets me back a little. But I also have the drivers backrest. Which can be used to move you up a little bit if need be. Great seat.

LePera makes three different solo seats. I have the Monterey with removable rider backrest. It is their largest solo seat but over still looks low profile. Have pics and full review in other posts.

Yep. That's the one for me. Love mine. More comfortable than the Mustang Vintage Solo I had. And I wont even start to bitch about how bad the Saddleman Dominator was.


I also have the backrest from CVOBACKREST.COM

its very similar. the main difference is that the cvo seat has a leather seating surface while the other is vinyl.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.
