Default Looking for a lower sitting seat for Heritage Softail Classic

Well I bought my wife her first Harley (Heritage Softail Classic) which she was very excited to own. She stands 5'3" so it was a challenge to find a bike she was comfortable on. We lowered the bike with an HD lowering kit and bought her thicker sole riding boots. She is about a 1/2 inch from being flat footed on the bike. Currently, I'm deployed and cannot go around to dealerships. So, I wanted to ask the experts what seat options might give her that last 1/2 inch of confidence so she can be more stable on the bike. She complains the stock seat is too wide making her legs go outward versus down to the ground. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

First, look at the lepera.com website & look at the seats for her bike. Then e-mail Ashley at: info@lepera.com & ask which seat would work her.

Or a C&C solo. It will also sit you lower and back more.

The barebones, it looks the best they have sick custom designs that dont break the bank. But most importantly i think is that its nice and narrow bro. Check out my custom le pera in my album.

I have a Saddlemen Explorer for sale in the classies. It pushed me a bit forward & defiantly sat lower. Great seat for a Heritage. The back rest slides right out.

The best thing about the internet is we all have an opportunity to argue that ours is the best. LOL.

The Harley Super reduced seat has a more narrow nose so that you can flat foot the bike easier. It also moves you forward a couple of inches.http://www.harley-davidson.com/gma/g...bmLocale=en_US
