Default Street Glide with sundowner seat?

I have a 2011 Street Glide and was wondering how different is the seat height between stock seat and sundowner. Anybody have pics of SG with sundowner.

the rear is wider n fatter. I didn't find the driver position much different. Seat is very comfortable but I think it is really the passenger that gains the most benefit.

I have one and originaly thought I would just put it on when the OL rode with me but as it turns out the cant(back support) on the new seat is so much better and the butt is so much more comfy it hasn't left the bike and probably will have a stock seat for sale in time. It does not have the Sleek look the stocker has but I am more for the comfort.

My wife thinks the same thing too. I put a C & C on it yesterday, which I like but she states that she doesn't have as much room as she did/does with the Sundowner. I called Chuck @ C & C and he says that their's moves the rider back 3/4-1 inch.
So for me at this pont it doesn't look like it the C & C will be a keeper unless the wife can acclimate to it.

oh yeah and IMO the sundowner seems to move me down an inch and forward an inch. Not for sure but feels that way reach to bars is much better now and I can survive till next winter to change my stocker bars out.

Put mine on about a month ago, at first it felt like I moved about an inch forward and a fraction of an inch higher. I'm 6'1 and after a days worth of riding I'd never go back, I even tried the mustang seat but the Sundowner is 'all that and more'. It truly is a very comfortable seat.

I'm "down" a little bit/ but, it hasn't pushed me forward at all. .
Love the seat (my honey really loves the seat!)
