Reserved for whoever designed the HD Badlander seat.

Enough was enough and I pulled that sucker off today and stuck my stock pillow look back on.

Looks can only get you so far. "The boys" were beginning to hate me on that.

Off to shop for a Mustang DayTripper. Looks good with the low profile type but I hear they are really comfortable.

I'm sure there are some who don't like the daytripper...
there's one in every crowd doncha know.
I've had one for about a year and I like it a lot.
Hope it works out for you.

The stock seat on my Roadster was so uncomfortable and hurt bad after 50 miles. At 2,500 it is so comfortable I could ride hundreds of miles without stopping if I didn't need to get gas.

I had a day tripper, and trust me when I say this the stock sportster seat is MORE comfortable that that thing. It may be the worst motorcycle seat ever made, not only is the surface of the seat hard as a rock but the design is horrible, no back support. Just giving you a heads up.
