I have two-the stocker and the Mustang vintage solo. I guess it will be 2-1/2 when I order the Mustang vintage rear seat one of these days.

I'm with you on that although I'm trying to convince the wife that I really need a Road King for two up riding (of course keeping the Sporty ) so far it's not working so i guess I will have to get the rear seat.

2. Original two-up that was a pain in the A*** after 25 miles and an HD sundowner imported through Chicago Harley 2 months ago. Ooh the pleasure of the ride now!

I couldn't answer the poll because there was a "one, the stock seat and it suits me just fine" option. I guess my a$$ was just lucky. I've done 1600 miles in a weekend no complaints from the bum.

Mine came with a stock 2-up pillow seat which is actually quite comfortable. I got a solo pillow seat (from a hugger) off ebay and that thing looked alright but my ass ached after just a few miles. I now have a mustang solo and I'll never go back. I'll keep the 2-up for the odd occasion that my kids wanna ride but that is a rare occurance.

stock 2 up seat on my custom and it is pretty comfortable for me. i think the lower than stock rear shocks and longer front tubes positions me on it differently and made it more comfortable.
