I'm looking at buying a Lepear Daytona 2-up LT Series seat, does anyone know about this seat? I'm looking for a seat that will put me lower on the bike but also won't put me any farther from the controls than I am already. I have a Sundowner for when I want to put on some miles on my 2005 XL 1200C. I like the Sundowner but I just want something lower and a more sleek for everyday riding. I'm only 5'8" so I want to be as low as possible to keep my feet on the ground. I like the Daytona LT and would appreciate any information anyone might have as to how it feels and how low it is and also where I can get one for the best price, it's like $334 on the Lepera web site so I'm hoping to get it a little cheaper if I can. Thanks for any information.

A couple of threads down, I have asked about the same question. JohnnyG. has the answers. I am still waiting on them.

There are some really good deals on e-bay if you want a plain seat and no fancy covers, stiching, or gel.

I just got the Leperra Sorento 2-up seat (pre'04 though). It actually lowered my height and pushed me closer to the fuel tank.

I bought mine on E bay for around 200.00 and I absolutely love it , 400 mile rides are no problem , I am 5'6 with a 30" inseam and its perfect for me I think its a little lower then stock and about the same as far as the forward position. I have mid controls and forward pegs and it works well with both sets of pegs, I think it has a real good balance of looks and comfort.

I also have this seat and like Icebob said, you will need a sissy bar to keep the old lady happy. she has been on a few times now and hasn't complained about it yet. definately a big improvement over the stock seat.

How is the width??? It looks to be about 2" narrower than the stock custom seat. I am thin, but do you miss the extra 2"????

That is one of the thinks I like best is that with a sissy bar you can ride 2 up on short distances with it ( Please don't try it without one) and with the bar off it looks solo.
