Yep. Same for me.
I'm thinking risers that don't pull back, and a seat which let's me get higher and a little back.
Should be spot on with the mid mounts.

Just saw the diagram.
That 0 degree lean is no good for me. Slightly forward is good on an unfaired bike at speed.

I have the original optional Seat on my 2002 Sportster....it had a Lapera Seat with sequins but the all fell off...lol...one year at the Laughlin River Run the owner of the bike before me noticed all my extra squirming and trying to reposition my ass on the seat the 550 miles from the S.F. Bay Area, it was the most grueling ride of my life...The celluloid in my ass bottomed out, I’m not a fat person but it only took 3 miles starting out for me to wiggle around....while at Laughlin we headed over to the Mustang Seat booth, there it was..the Mustang Fastback Seat in all it’s glory.....he purchased this seat for a lot of money, little did I know three years later I would own the Sportster...with that magnificent seat....it was nice...however, after my purchase of a T Bag Route 66 did I realize this Seat wouldn’t work with the bag....I purchased a rear rack but it looked ridiculous sitting all the way back there, then a few years later I was turned onto the optional Seat from Harley that came with the bike....it has hella padding, the rear built-in pillion is great for the T Bag to sit on, plus it gave be back support...it was a win win situation...I still have the Fastback, and use it on solo rides....we left the old Lapera seat there in the Golden Nugget secure bike parking lot...next to a trash can.

Cool story. I'll check out the mustangs.
The lepera is way better constructed than stock.
Contour isn't perfect but its better than my home made yoga mat seat.
Still looking.

Trimmed the lepera myself. Way better. Will have it recovered with this new shape.
