    Need input

    I'm looking for input from people that have used aftermarket seats. I'm 5' 11" 250lbs. I'm kinda new street glides and the prices of seats are not cheap. I'm pretty uncomfortable after about 1hr of riding. I feel like I need to go back an inch or more. I ha e been doing as much research as possible, and came down to 2 seats. The danny gray airhawk xl and Corbin gunfighter. I'm definitely not stuck on those 2. Its just what I have come up with. Let me know what you guys use and what seems to be comfortable

    I'm 6-1 and about 230 and I had a local guy put a gel pad in my stock seat and I can ride it all day now. I know everybody is different on how they sit. This mite be an option to try and save some money. Had an ultra seat reworked last year and we had to recover it and it wasn't as cheap with leather cover. I use this one when the wife is riding with me and it's more for her comfort. I had him move me back and down to get me off the tank.

    Yeah went out today and fingers in right hand were tingling and my back hurt within the 1st hr. Had to keep stopping ever 30 mins. Kinda annoying for a 25+ thousand dollar bike.

    I'm 6'1" 250ish and find that a stock ultra classic seat is just fine for me. I don't feel too tall for the riding position and extra seat up back for the Mrs.

    Thanks sand, I'm gonna go check out harleys seat program and see if they still do it. Before I go spending 6-700 on a seat. That's alot of coin to gamble on
