Hi everyone.
I am thinking about changing the seat of my sporty (2002 XLH).
I would like to put on one the "custom" seats like the one in the picture. with a removable back rest.
Anyone can tell me more about how comfortable they are?
I mean for both the driver and the passenger. If i put on something too hard for the passenger my wife will bitch..... A LOT.

Thanks and see you on the road somewhere.

Speaking as one who has sat on the back on many occasions, I have to say I've never been on this kind of seat. But to me it does not look very comfy from a passers stand point. It looks to be very narrow and not much cushioning, making for uncomfortable long rides. Again just my opinion and I'm sure it is much more comfortable than the 1950 hardtail panhead I spent the first 5 years as the passenger on:) It's hard to complain when you don't know anything else:)

FORGET IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've got a leather Badlander seat on my Sporty(which is what that is)not only is it uncomfortable as hell for the passenger but the rider as well. I rode 120 miles one time and I was nothing but sore. It is good though for bopping around town. It sure do look cool on there though!!!!!!

Thinking about changing my seat

Sheepboy, thanks for the advice. I saw the seat on your bike (i was looking at your pictures earlier) an it looks sooo cool.
This is my big dilemma...it does look cool but it will definitely leave my butt soar and i do want to ride my bike more than just in the city.
I guess I will be looking at a different seat.

Comfort is definately a bigger factor than looks if your going to put any mileage on. I love the look of the bare bones seats, but opted for a Mustang seat that's nice and roomy, I'm sure my butt will thank me for that once the riding weather rolls in!
