G-Funk,

Your bike is one of the best looking Irons on XLF. Really like what you did with the 4.5G tank. Reps to you.

Found a Mustang wide touring saddle at Barber last year. Much better than the solo seat that was on it. Looks out of place though being so wide on such a compact bike.

I rode further with my new Mustang solo seat. Very comfortable.

Grabbed one of these for the bike this year. I had to cut alot of the pan out to get it to sit on my 01 but man is it comfy! Cut the pillion off so it's solo.

That's the one I have, the Mustang wide vintage. Over 130K miles on it and I noticed this year it has a 3 to 4 inch crack going along the side of it. I also have a bead seat that I keep in the saddle bag. For those really long rides, just to have something to change it up occasionally.

I also run the Mustang wide vintage. It's falling apart with several splits on both sides and I had to partially remove the cover to bolt the rear mounting tank back on after the rivets pulled out. I probably have 150,000 or so miles on it and I got it used

What a pleasure to see you on the forum!

HD Sundowner solo for me. As advertised you can ride on it till sundown. Extremely comfy for me. It is a change I do purely for comfort. It is a bit big looking on a 48 but after a few hours you totally know why you bought it.
