Default Le Pera Daytona or Drag Specialties Predator III

I’m thinking of getting either the Le Pera Daytona seat or the Drag Specialties Predator III seat. Does anyone have experience with either one?

For a better, customizable option check out what C&C has to offer.
Similar style with good lumbar support in vinyl or leather and a variety at that.
Sit further back or forward.
I can tell you it's a nicer seat than Le pera's barebones that's for sure. No experience with the daytona.
That's the fastback in my sig.

Looking comfy and being comfy are two different things. Lots of seats are comfy if you don't ride for more than 1/2 hour at a time and looking cool is your biggest consideration...

I like mine but it's a one hour seat. I have a Sundowner I'm waiting for spring to put some miles on to see if it's an all day seat. Fingers crossed.

I've got two LePera seats, though neither is the Daytona. Both are great seats. Neither is particularly amazing when new, but they break in very nicely.

If you go the LePera route, be ready for that. Not sure how some of these others break in, but I haven't seen people talk about how significant the break in is the way I have for LePera's.

A generous amount of mink oil left to bake in the hot sun for a couple hours and my leather seat broke in nicely.
I'd never go back to vinyl.
Satisfaction guaranteed or your choice of having them make changes or your money back.
Won't get that from lepera if you're not happy.
