Back On A Bike

Well I thought I was done riding when I sold my '05 ElectraGlide Classic. I went about 3 years and the itch just got to be too much. I didn't want to go the touring route this time, as now I ride alone. So I picked up a very clean '06 V-Star 650, stock except for the pipes. She had 4100 miles, so I took her in when I got her, and did the 4K full service. I'm really enjoying this bike, and I love the look.

Thank you. My first change for the bike will be a new seat. I'm looking for something that will move me back a bit. At 6'2" I could use an extra inch of leg room on the 650 :-)

So I'm open to suggestions on seats that give us taller riders some more leg room.
