It's about an inch lower than stock on mine. Very nice!

It is slightly lower. It is also a bit narrower in the front that allows your feet better contact with the ground, so it makes it feel even lower than it is. I relly like mine, and the wife likes the matching wide rear pad as well.

truckman,

Sorry for the late response, I just found this thread.

My '02 RK didn't come with a stock seat, it had an HD mini touring seat. This seat sits nice and low, only downside is that its not the most comfortable seat in the world. I find that I need to get off every 100 miles or so. With this seat, I'm looking just over the top of the windshield (I'm 6'4").

In contrast, I bought a Mustang Regal Touring seat. This seat is far more comfortable, but makes me sit 2-3 inches higher. I've recently purchased the 3" oversized windshield, so the correct view is restored.

I've found that I use the HD mini touring seat for shorter runs (less than 300 miles) and the Mustang seat for longer runs.

HTH.
