    Le Pera Maverick Up Front Seat

    I've just taken delivery of Le Pera's Maverick Up Front seat with Biker Gel (2015 SGS). It's a beautiful seat, well made, and everything I expected for the money in terms of quality. However, I was surprised by just how much it moves you forward towards the tank compared with stock, which is great in terms of reaching the controls and back support but I suspect I'll feel hemmed in after a few hours in the saddle unless it really softens up over time. I've not taken it on the road yet because I'm considering swapping it for the stock '2 Up' Maverick, but not sure what the difference between the two is; will I be further back or a tad forward than stock?
    P.S. Le Pera's quality really highlights how poor HD's item is for something fitted to a touring motorcycle. Any advice/experience welcome.

    I had a Lepera on my old RG and loved it. Congrats!

    Thanks guys, particularly for the photo. I'm going to exchange it for the 2 Up Maverick to give more room to move around in the saddle.

    I had a "standard" Lepera Maverick on my 09 Fatboy and it moved me backwards approx. 1 inch from stock position.

    I also had a Maverick Daddy Long Legs that moved me 2" backwards from stock seat position.
