Mama needs a new seat

Alright guys....or more specifically gals,

I am currently running a Lucky Daves seat. By far the most comfortable saddle I've experienced, looks amazing, and quality is just outstanding. However, mama is not so happy with the passenger seat. Reviews were terrible for the passenger, but at the time of purchase, that was not my concern. Not looking to replace the seat, it ties in too well with the bike, but I am looking for a long distance seat to make her life more comfortable.

What's the best looking and riding seat for the women in yalls lives?

No seat that is comfortable for the passenger is going to look good. I use a OE Ultra seat the was done by MCC and we are fine with it. But for the most part it is covered up by the tour pak. We've been using this same seat for around 7 years and two bikes.

******** Seat is Sold ********


I've got a HD Sundowner Smooth Deep Bucket seat with probably 5 hours on it. Got it to lower me down a bit from my Hammock, but ended up modding the Hammock. Be happy to let it go cheap - just sitting here. Was $359 new.

Strangely enough my wife hates the hammock seat I bought. Sits her too high up being she is under 5'. Bought a drag specialties low profile tourin seat and she loves it. I thought she would say it was too firm but she did 280 miles one way this week and not a complaint.

My wife is a big fan of the Hammock seat. As others have said, comfort comes at a price. Sexy looking it is not. Function over form. it is cushy and it looks bulky. I thought I would swap it out for solo riding without the tourpack on but turns out I am lazy and would rather have the comfort. So if looks are a major concern I would not go that option. Here is a photo so you can see what I mean. I'll find one without the tourpack on.
