Any suggestions for an aftermarket seat?

I've had the mustang touring seat on other bikes and it's great but it also pushes the riding position up and back (although I have not tried the day tripper). I was wondering if anyone has tried and liked other seats that have a close position to the stock riding seat.

Have you looked at Ultimate Seats?

I've had one of theirs for a number of years and am good all day. Sits me down just a little further back than stock.

No I haven't seen this. I've heard a few people talk about it but this is the first link I've seen. I'll check it out.

I have the Ultimate Seat (main, rear, and two backrests) on my 2012 Silverado. And I had one on my Yamaha 950. In both cases, I could not be happier. Super comfortable, resilient, great looking. In my opinion, the Ultimate looks far better than the Mustang.

My 950 was black and the non-studded seat was a good match, I think. My Silverado is white on which I attached the Ultimate STUDDED seat. The studs against white seem to give it a more dramatic (or whatever) look.

The main seat includes a detachable pouch, which comes in handy.

The set was about a $1,000. They will throw in covers at no additional charge if you buy the whole set.

The main office/shop is in Daytona FL, adjacent to the big Harley complex.

There's also E.D. Seats. Very similar to Ultimate with a couple different options for butt placement.

I have purchased all kinds of aftermarket seats . Bottomline, they are pretty much the same. I'm too far forward and not low enough and these were low profile seats too. I went with the Dragger custom seat.should have done that from the start , But just found out about them two weeks ago.

May not be for some . I've been on long and hard rides on a spring solo seat for years and got plenty of saddle sore to toughen my butt . Not to mention I ride 365 days a year , so that explains the numbness lol. My seat is called " painfully low " . Alex makes a more padded seat for those who need more comfort.

I love my Corbin...a firmer seat than Mustang when you sit on it but great for long rides. I have the dual tour that was made for Yammy so it has the nice star stitching too.
