I got home from work last night little past 10 PM and my seat was waiting for me. It was raining this morning so I couldn't (didn't want to) try it out right away. I went to the garage in flat sandles, installed the seat, and sat on it. Winner! Still overcast when it was time to leave for work but I had to try it. With my Redwings, 1.5 inch heels, I am solidly flat footed with bent knees. I'm loving it. It feels like I'm sitting in a bucket seat.

I went with their "super narrow" option including a 2" drop. All padding including passenger portion replaced with memory foam.

Oldbie, how does the memory foam feel/react vs the original seat foam? Can I ask what it cost you to have the work done and how long it took?

It feels firmer but is not uncomfortable. I took a two hour ride today with no negative issues. $295 plus shipping one way, in my case $30 USPS. I obtained a a seat box from the HD dealer. They started work 9/29 and I had it back on 10/4. They want it there at least one day ahead of scheduled "surgery" date. I sent I this about four days early. I had a spare seat to use.

I think I'm going to need a shorter windshield now. Just have to decide which one.

I found the seat, but there is a slight delay. As soon as it arrives, off to MCC.

I’m ordering the super narrow, and asking them to make the seat to get me the lowest possible. Should I ask for memory foam or something else to get lowest?

I think memory foam will be the way to go, best bet is call and speak with them; tell them what you are trying to achieve, and they will make recommendations. I was told at my weight, 180#, to not use gel-I'm not heavy enough.
