Default Danny Gray Seat

Is anybody running a Danny Gray seat? I've been looking at ads for their IST 2 up seat, and it looks nice in the propaganda. before I start saving for one, I'd like to hear from some others who have one on their bike. I do a lot of long rides as well as commute on my bike (it's my only transportation) and I'm living on a small fixed income, so I tend to be cautious in my spending. I've been using a Sundowner for the past 80,000 miles, but I'm thinking about something a little different. What's your opinion? Good? Bad? OK?

Danny Gray make the H-D Brawler. Consequently I'd never consider an actual Danny Gray seat (I assume they'd be just as bad).

I have a Danny Gray on my Road Glide. When I bought the bike, it was outfitted with a RWD stretched dresser tank, and Danny Gray makes the matching seat/rear pillion to fit well with that tank.
They are build on the same premise as Corbin seats, very nice lines but rather firm materials. They supposedly form to your shape after a while to increase comfort, which is something I never quite found any Corbin seat to do very well either. The passenger pillion my wife found unusable (and she is VERY tolerant of less than perfect rear pillion pads). I purchased her the Danny Gray pillion with the built-in adjustable air pockets (as in Airhawk design) and she finds it much better. I use an HD adjustable air seat pad as well if I am riding for more than an hour or so. They will redo my front seat with the air pockets built in if I want, but charge is over $450, plus shipping, to do that. I will stick with the Airhawk style pad. If you are used to the Sundowner, my Danny Gray is not at all like that.
