wow go badlander woot woot... even tho I ditched the passenger pegs and mounted a ss2r exhaust I cant bring myself to get a solo seat, to me the badlander just flows with the lines of the bike so well... that and a new seat is expensive

Here's a thread that been going since 05 on seats if you want to check it out also...
http://xlforum.net/forums/s...ead.php?t=9980


For the record, I have stock 2-up, sundowner, bobber style seat, had a mustang vintage (sold it after 6000 miles of use), looking for another solo now.

Springs must do something worthwhile. Farmers used to spend day after day on farm equipment for 12-16 hours a day, sitting on metal seats with only springs for give.

Have a Mustang Daytripper on mine. Like the looks of it. Flows with the lines of my Custom. Comfortable too.
