Awesome seat for a Sporty?

Sup all!

I'm the proud new owner of a XL1200L. 09. LOVE the thing. Except for the seat. I did about 125 miles on Sunday, and when we got to where we were going, my a$$ felt like I'd been sitting on an steel I-beam for an hour and a half. I told a few of the dudes I was riding with about it, who sat on it, and proceeded to state that this was the worst seat they ever sat on, and wondered how I got as far as I did without mentioning it.

So now I'm in the market for a seat, everyone is recommending a Mustang. The Mustang Touring caught my eye and looks insanely comfy, but i'm not sure it will look out of place on a sporty or not. The Mustang Tripper however looks like freakin' perfect fit!

Anyone have any experience with these seats? Hate to drop the $ only to have my hopes dashed. hehe

EDIT: and by the way, i'm not looking for a 2up, just a solo.

I do not have either of these seats mentioned. I have a Sundowner on my 08 Sporty and must say that for anything over 70 or 90 miles at a sitting is almost painful. I am in the market for either a new seat that is more comfortable or a new bike that is more comfortable.

I ran a Bandolaro (sp) Stripper for years on my Sporty and never had an issue. Granted it is a 2 up seat but ya gotta have a place for the strippers to ride.

Why don't ya swing over to the new members area and post up an introduction as well as a pic or two of your Sporty? We love pics around here.

And welcome to the forum.

BTW.... you get extra points if there are big titties in the pics too.

I actually already thought to do that, but man, i'd sure love to get my SE's and my new seat before I toss pics up.

Cool

Every ass is different... but I have seen lots of good reviews on the Mustang seats.

And that Tripper looks amazing, in both plain and Tuck and Roll style...



Same goes for the Vintage Touring style... can't go wrong with either one. Do you have a local shop where you can test them? Nothing like being able to see them on your bike and testing them before you buy.

Maybe ride to a local bike event where the Mustang folks attend.

Yeah I've been calling around dude, NO ONE carries Mustang seats. They're all pretty much "oh, well we can certainly order that for you." I'll just have to wait for a bike show to come around. But in the meantime, I'm going to try the Touring. f%@* it.
