For my money this is the best seat ever. Had one on a Road Star back in 2005. Moved up to 2010 Ultra Classic thought I would try a mustang but changed it out to an ultimate. In 2012 traded up to a FLHTK. 166,000 kms = 103,148 miles on Ultimate Seats. Can ride longer days; however, you do have to cover them as they are not waterproof -no plastic under the leather/vinyl - but they are not as hot due to no plastic. My 2 cents.
