New seat opinions! Help!

New to the forum. Appreciate the opportunity. I’m looking at replacing the OEM seat on my 19’ Special. Just installed 12” factory 47 bars and I’m looking for a seat that may sit a bit lower or maybe a little further back. Couple inches would be nice. Obviously looking for something stylish but off course comfort is key. What’s out there and what have some of you guys went with? Btw I’m 5’10, 170 pounds. I’ve noticed size matters with everything. Thanks for any info!

I'm about your height. and had them bars on my 16. The seat you're describing is the low profile solo seat. i loved mine. Still do. It's on my trike. Best seat for me ever. I toss my airhawk r on it for my week long trips. No other seat for me

I have a '17 Special with the same bars- I'm same height albeit 25# heavier. I found that the Corbin Widow Maker is the seat for me. It moves me off the tank and has a little bit of a built in back support at the "ledge". For what it's worth, the Corbin was excellent right out of the box- no break in needed unlike what others have written in the past.

What RFG said. Low profile solo seat does exactly what you asked for. You're a little further back and about 2 inches lower.

Im really happy with the lepera daddy long legs. I've had mustang and Corbin in the past. As well as a few leperas. My bars are 16" Yaffes. I'm close to 6'3. Probably should of gone a bit taller though....
