Lepera solo or badlander ?

I know i'll get other choices of solo seats (cuz you might have a different preference) I have a line on a brand new Lepera "bare bones" for cheap. I also like the Badlander look too ! Just having a hard time deciding,I like the look of both but, won't be buying both...

Please feel free to post a pick of your seat set-up too !

P.S. The seat is just for around town rides. I love my touring seat for the longer rides !

The seat is for my E-G Classic.

Craiger, I think the LePera looks better, but I would bet that the Badlander is more comfy. I have a LePera Silhouette on my bike and it gets a little sketchy after about 150 miles. However, I am on a different bike altogether (FLSTN).

That said, I'd go with the LePera for looks and the Badlander for comfort. I bought a gel pad for mine, but since my bike's been under the weather, I have yet to try it out.

If you run naked around a tree at approximately 87mph, there's a very real possibility of fu(k!ng yourself...

Then Definitely go for the LePera. In my opinion, it's far better looking.

Lepera it is ! Due to the over welming responses i went with my original choice anyways, but included a funky little rack that actually came as a package deal. Just dry fitting right now, gotta p/up some knurled and chrome nuts for the seat and the load equalizer has to be relocated. Dirty lookin bike too....It can wait till spring.

I have one of each & your right , the LePara looks killer on my Wide Glide and once you get it broken in its fine for a couple hundred miles .
But the Bad Lander seat looks ALMOST as killer and is WAY WAY more comfortable , that's why I just had to have both .

Is that a Harley rack??? I really like it. I've been looking for quite a while for one for my bike...but I want a "deal" too.... Same as you on the Badlander... I'll get one, but I want it cheap.. I put a Wanted ad on Craigslist about 2 months ago, and never go t a single call.. They just stay too high on ebay... I can usually get a brand new one for about 20 bucks more then they go for on the bay....
