Very nice!!! I will slowly convert my L model to more of a roadster. The deal I got could not be beat so have to live with the base model.

I just took a look at that Drag Specialties seat and this could be the answer. Their claiming 4 and a 1/2 inches of additional leg room with this seat.

Do you think it was really that dramatic? If so you may have saved me a lot of aggravation and money so....thanks for that.

I didn't take measurements but the new seat is a BIG difference from stock...before installing it the bike felt too low and too small and is now just right for me at 6'1".

Does anyone have any experience with the West-Eagle bench seats? I just found them yesterday and they're just about exactly what I want, but $500 is a lot to drop on a seat I can't see in person or find any reviews on. It looks like they're maybe from Japan? My google-fu is weak, I'm not finding much information about them.
