Default Stock Seat 48!

The stock seat is pretty comfortable! Just wish I didn’t slide off the back! It needs a wall on the back of it!

I agree the 2016+ seats aren't bad but you have zero support on accel and particularly fun when you through bumps in the mix. I swapped mine for something with a tall lip and it transforms how you can ride.

I bought a le pera streaker. After break in, its way more comfortable than the stock iron seat, while keeping a low profile. I have no problems sliding back on it. Just throwing it out there for comparison. I thought about the bare bones but it forces ya to far forward.

I spoiled myself with a lucky daves seat. They are pricy but fantastic quality. The gel inserts are awesome!
I actually like it enough that I'm saving up to get a matching one for the dyna I just picked up. My hopes are a taller sissy bar (24") and a matching removable full height sissy bar pad. Hoping in profile for a kind of "king and queen" look.
