Default Suggestions for a higher and back seat XL1200R

Looking for a seat for my 2008 XL1200R that'll move me up and back. I can't use solo because it needs to cover the scuffed and scratched fender. "Predator Reach" from Drag Specialties looked promising but shows out of stock and I see no way to backorder one. I didn't see anything at Saddleman. Corbins look very low. HD website shows no seat for this bike.
Any ideas?

You might look at Le Peras' seats:

Mustang seats might have an option for you.
I know for my 2007 there were slim pickings due to the ECU being under the seat and most aftermarket seats not being able to fit properly due to the way the ECU needs more clearance than the fender on older and newer models (I believe the issue was only for 07-09 bikes)

The HD seat for a bike with a 4.5 gallon tank is the Sundowner 51739-07.

Do you want this because you have long legs? I lowered my foot pegs 1.5" and it made my 1200R reasonably comfortable - I'm 6'3", I also have a Mustang seat which I'm happy with.
