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.
