I seem to now have the required 3 seats on a garage shelf and one on my bike. Same as I have for my R9T.

'17 XL1200C, seats from worst to best:

Stock. The king of numb butt. As bad as the stock suspension.

3rd place: Harley Sundowner. It's just squishy and weird. No way this is an all day seat unless you love almost all day numb butt. It's also the ugliest.

2nd place: LePera Daytona Sport Daddy Longlegs. If I had to choose between the stock, Sundowner and the Daddy Longlegs to go on a 500 mile ride, the Daddy Longlegs is the seat I'd pick. Gives you numb butt but it's milder and shifting around a bit makes it tolerable. Best looking seat of the 4.

The Winner: Mustang Wide Vintage Touring Solo. It's the clear, no doubts winner. This is an all day seat and not bad looking with the Customs' 4.5 gallon tank. Has a kinda nice traditional solo look.

Seems ya never know what will work. Sitting on the same "shelf of seats" is a Mustang Standard Touring Solo for my R9T. On the R9T it's in a tie with the stock seat as the worst and is pretty grim after 20 minutes.

i just took my first good ride (about 2 hours) on my new mustang vintage solo.
this is the standard vintage solo, not the wide vintage solo.
im so happy, and im told it will get better once its broken in.
its like riding on a cloud compared to the stock low 2 up, and my lepera bare bones.
