From the summer,I have still,a dilemma;On higher revs,I have the feeling that vibration is forwarded straight to the eyeballs,slightly blurring vision...so I suspect that the OEM 86 sponge inside my seat is giving up;almost like sitting on the frame.Or some more engine vibration...or loosen eye sockets...he-he.Winter is here again,symptoms will be lighter due more serious underwear,and more stable eyeballs(frozen).

Please keep in mind the health benefits of the felt vibration at the front of the saddle. Took me several years to understand, after buying the 2000 Sporty, but my physician confirmed it after tracking my enlarged prostrate for several years. You end up getting a prostrate massage with every ride the enlargement reduction was quite noticeable. So ride often and ride far, it’s good for your physical and mental well being!!!!

How about hydrocele condition? Any benefits with that?

I knew it! Introduction of the rubber mounted engine was the result of the starving freemason doctors,conspiracy.

I have a Sundowner on one of my rubbermounts and a Mustang Vintage Wide on the other. I like them both pretty equally. I tend to travel, so I like a seat that doesn't have me hurting at the end of the day.

Stock seat means one to many things for a Sportster

example, for the XL883N A.K.A 'Alf'
