Mean City Cycle does a heck of a job upgrading stock seats. Google them they are not bad price wise for what you get back.

Boy... ask 5 people and you'll get 5 different answers to that question. I agree on the stock SG seat. They do look nice but it wasn't great for me and my wife hated it. I've tried a couple different seats. First was the standard touring seat from Mustang. Much better and more comfy than the stock SG seat and my wife liked it, but it still wasn't great for me. So I took a chance and ordered a Corbin classic solo and touring pillion. I love it. It's firm but has been very comfy for me since the first ride. I got the widest touring pillion for my wife and she really likes it too. Corbin is top quality with real leather in the seating area and the seat actually "locks" onto the bike. I'm sold on Corbin. I'm proof that there is an arse for every seat. Good luck on the choice.

'12 Street glide... adding miles.

If your are considering a different HD seat Harley has a good seat loaner program. Give it a try.

I tried the Harley Hammock seat. took it back the next day. I ordered the ultimate tallboy, two piece seat. I can put over two hundred miles on it without ever climbing off, and still no soreness, just tired. I'm 6'6'' 260. I loooove this seat. the aftermarket seats give you better control of your bike, because they don't (FLEX). don't be cheep on this item, if you do, you will regret it. later.

Just got my 2013 ultra classic limited and realized the stock ride is not set up for tall guys. I ride Two up and was thinking about the tall boy seat at the HD dealership which claims to give 2 more inches of leg room over stock seats. I am sure I will need to relocate the trunk for my rider. I am 6' 4" at 240 so is there anything else I can do to stretch out my legs besides the highway pegs which I have already added? Is there a better tall boy seat than HD's setup?
They say HD's passenger grab rails will not work with this seat, anyone know if the grab rails made by Kuryakyn Will work?
Any ideas would be a appreciated, I need a ride I can go the distance on

Thanks
