Ultra, I recently put a HD Sundowner on mine.&nbsp\\; I'm 6' and 300+, and needed something with a wider seat than the stocker.&nbsp\\; Also have the HD adjustable back rest.&nbsp\\; So far, I'm satisfied with the seat.&nbsp\\; For me, it's more comfortable than the Mustang I had on my previous bike, and was about $200 cheaper.

'll be selling my sundowner and adjustable backrest in a couple of weeks. Very comfortable, I'm just changing my look with a new Corbin solo seat.

Have your stock seat custom done. The Sundowner looks to big and bulky on a SG. You can find a local sticther in most places. I went to www.bitchnstitchninc.com in Colorado. They did my seat for $225 with gel.

C&amp\\;C solo will move you back and down. With the backrest it's the best seat i've had.

I'm 6'6", 280 and I just went with the tallboy seat on my SG. I have done a few 300 mile days with no problem, but 400 is about the limit. I think I am going to get gel inserts this winter from mean city cycles, read lots of good things about them.

I disagree with the statement that the Sundowner is too bulky for the SG.&nbsp\\; The Sundowner is the seat for you.
