Default Which Aftermarket Seat?

I have always had Mustang seats but the Ultimate looks pretty good. So if you are riding on an aftermarket seat let me know what you think of it.

Tried the Mustang touring seat. My wife and I both hated it, and it was returned. I have a Corbin now and we both like it. I think you'll find that everyone has a favorite seat that works, for them. Good luck!

I had a local seat upholster redo mine. Added a pro pad and some fuax gater. He's going to add some memory foam too, it's just a touch hard.
1/3 of the price a ultimate. Just a thought.

Well I ordered the Ultimate today. Can't go wrong with the 14 day ride or return.

You will like it. I'm sure there are other seats, but anything was better than stock. The stock seat probably works for most, but I found myself sliding forward, I sit in the Ultimate seat, just as they advertise, plus no more numb ass..

Yes I feel like I am setting on my tail bone on the stock seat and now it has my sciatica flaired up for the first time In years. I ordered the new seat this afternoon and got a tracking number about a half hour later. Maybe the back will calm down by the time it arrives.

I put a Drag Specialties low profile touring seat on mine a month ago but can't comment about comfort until I get it out on a several hundred mile trip.

With the combined seat and backrest for about $750, I'm thinking Ultimate too. The Russell Day-long is still a contender, also...
