Road Zeppelin seat review

Has anyone tried Harleys road Zeppelin seat? Is it worth the money? I own a 09 Road Glide and rack up a lot of miles and the stock seat just doesn't cut it.

Thanks in advance.

I have one on my '03 and wouldn't trade it for anything. I have done 700-1000 mile days with no problems. It does raise you up a bit so if your legs are short you might have a problem.

Air zep

I don't know if its worth it... There is a guy on craigslist in MT that has one for 400- he says he is selling because when its air'd up he isn't tall enough in the saddle....

Couple inches higher than stock plus wider so feels higher ... good for the tall rider . Also changes the line of sight through the windshield and rider position to the handlebars and foot controls .

I've had one on my 09 Ultra for about 6 months now. Best seat I've sat on, does raise you up some. I'm 6'-1" tall with a 34 inseam and have no problems. I couldn't go 20 miles with the stock seat without my butt starting to burn, now I can go 200 miles without taking a break. Well worth the money. Best price I found was at Chicago HD.

Ok I broke down and bought a new one from a HD dealer on ebay. Cost me $575 with shipping. I'll put up another post once I get it and try it out.

Had one from 2002 to 2007 and loved it. MD to SD no problem. However I dont know if the new ones are any different for the 09-10 bikes. Good Luck
