Mustang wide vintage fan here. Had the pillion pad on but no one ever used it so put a rack on.Without a doubt the best seat I ever tried. The looks kind of grew on me & no one sees it when I'm sat on it. Did 370 miles in a day when I got lost going to East Anglia, regularly do 250 mile day trips in comfort, the stock 883R seat was good for maybe 25 - 30 miles!

If you think it is comfortable now, give it another 1000 - 1500 miles, you'll see a huge improvement. They take quite awhile to break-in.

anyone know of a solo seat that'll fit an '03 that puts you closer to the front of the bike by maybe an inch or 2. i have been using the stock pillow solo seat but i feel like if it let me sit just a tincy bit more forward i'd feel a lot better.



hell i've even been thinking about just taking it apart and making a new pad for it.



also i have an older corbin gunfighter that i need to let go soon. it's in good shape.

pleated Mustang tripper solo seat here. Had a saddleman seat but it was too hard for me with the gel. Looked great, just could not ride over a 50 miles before my ass felt it.
