Need a new seat that sits me back.

I have a 2016 Road Glide standard. When i bought the bike i ordered an Ultra seat and just got it today. The seat sits me up on the tank and smashes my you know. I need a seat that sits me farther back. Any suggestions would help. Going to the dealer in the morning to return seat and try some other seats. Maybe after market like Corbin would be better I do not know. Thanks for the help.

I have the HD Tallboy and love it. Pushes me back 2" over stock

And it's a lot more comfy than the stock seat

I have been researching and Mustang makes a summit touring seat that moves you back 1.75 inches. Thinking of that one maybe. Going to the HD dealer this morning and maybe I will check out the HD tallboy seat.

I had my seat redone by Mean City cycles. Check out their site, tons of options to customize your seat to fit exactly the way you want. I had my seat on my 2012 dropped and pushed back. really gave me the feelin of sitting in the bike. you have to send it to them but I had an extra seat at the time> nice people to work with.

Another Mustang owner here. I put 27000+ miles on my last seat on a '13 RGC. I just bought a '16 RGU and I'm looking at a heated Mustang seat this time. I here good things about the Tallboy and DLL. I went with the Mustang because it is wider. Good luck.

'16 RGU in 2 Tone Red with additional parts from Freedom Shield, Carlini, Mustang, Kuryakyn, Custom Dynamics, H-D, Bagger Nation and Vance & Hines.

There are a lot of seats that push you back from stock.

My problem was the HD driver back rest pushed me further forward.

Bought a used Corbin 2 up "Solo" tourer. Too far back for me.

Finally tested 5 different Mustangs at Laconia Rally last week. 4 of those I was considering, all too far back. Ended up with a separate solo, and pillion. Which I had not been considering for online purchase.

So, I would suggest you test. Visit dealerships that offer different seats, and sit away !
