To NLXL. That does look like a comfy seat.

Reminds me of the style of seats that came on the 2006 Yamaha Roadstar 1700 era. ( possibly Yam uses similar to this day? )
I had this bike for short while many years ago and it was the most comfortable seat i had ever used.
Ride Safe.

I looked at the Yamaha and the style does look kinda similar indeed. It is pretty comfortable. Never saw it on a Sportster although being OEM. Maybe it's a police model or something?

I have several....a 100 Anniversary 2-up with some added foam in the nose, a stock solo with a little added foam in the nose and a Saddlemen Explorer dual. I prefer the Saddlemen.

NOT MINE, but I saw this one in Las Cruces, NM a couple years back and thought it was certainly worth a picture…

This motorcycle looks so cool, I really like the brown seat.
