I been down the seat search for road and found all reduced reach seat do is shove your junk in to the tank. Drop the rear an inch with a set of shocks. Buy an adjustable back rest. You will be a lot more comfortable.
I have an 11 streetglide and I am 5'3" with a 26" inseam!
I did a number of things to to lower my glide. I lowered the front by changing the springs which brought the front down 1", I lowered the back by 2"s with take down blocks, and I lowered the seat 3"s with a Drop Seat Kit from FatBaggers.com.
Wearing boots with 2" heals I can reach the ground.
I also had the seat redone to push me forward 2"s which made it easier to reach the brake.
I am now looking at getting rid of the air shocks and take down blocks and going with a spring shock.
Thanks for the help, I bought a Harley reduce reach seat, I like the way it pushes me foward, I hate the look of the passenger seat, it's huge.. I called Mean City cycles and they don't cut the back seat. Does anybody know of a company who does cut the back seat or did anybody have their stock seat altered to be pushed foward by mean city? Ever better, does anybody know of a low profile seat that pushes you foward? Thanks
I had the seat done at a local upholsterer because I didn't want to wait to get it back, and I was able to voice my likes and dislikes to a person face to face.
It's not the best job I believe but it's made the way I want it. Like I said it pushes me forward and it has a jelpak. I could raise the handlebars a little but I just don't want to go through the bother of taking the fairing and radio apart again.
I am looking at changing the shocks. I measured from bolt center to bolt center to where the blocks are mounted and I think I can go with a 10 1/2 to 11 inch shock and do away with the take down blocks. If anyone has any thoughts about that I'd appreciate hearing them.
One more thing when I get to old to hold the bike up anymore FATBAGGERS has the trike conversion kit.
