Default Best 2 Up Seat for Sportster?

I am HATING the stock 2 up seat on my '08 1200C Anniv Edition! Too bad 'cause the 2 tone seat looks great but is VERY uncomfortable.
What's the best choice for a new 2 up seat? I hear the Sundowner is very comfortable but I'd like to hear from Y'all...

i have a mustang vintage with pillion (non wide version) and both me and my wife think it's 100X more comfortable than stock.
&nbsp\\;
takes about a thousand miles for the rider seat to get really comfortable, but my wife said the pillion was like night and day right from the start.

Im using the HD pillow-top seat. So far so good. The stock seat blows.

If you like the color of the seat, just have it reworked into something comfortable. These guys have their own part of this forum, just start a new post and ask'em if they can work on your seat.

I have a Sundowner also (not in my sig picture).&nbsp\\; It's a great seat if you have forward controls.&nbsp\\; Those with mids find it frustrating and uncomfortable.

Wife and I will be taking it on a 10-hour round-trip next month.

I'm thinking of getting a removable gel or sheepskin pad to put over the seat for longer trips.

I have mids and love my Sundowner. I think people with Mids dont give the seat a chance. Once you get used to it it is great. I highly recommend the sundowner especially for the price you can find one for.
