Default Which solo seat is best for a Road King Classic

I know it's an age old question...Which solo seat is best for a Road King Classic. I'm 6'3" and I'd like to sit lower and further back while having the ability to add a comfy seat for 'mama' when she want's to ride. I ride with the stock seat which is just OK, at best.

There's alot of disscussion on this topic, but i'm looking for comfort, lower, further back and expandable for a nice rider pillion that I can add when necessary.

Thoughts??

You may want to consider a Mustang Vintage Solo (about $300-325 retail). Add the 13'' passenger pillion (about $200) for wifey and you're all set for either one-up or two-up riding. And the Mustang seats look great on Road Kings.

Default That C&C looks great...

How is the comfort for the longer road trips? How is the customer service?

Love that Ostrich look!

The Vintage Super Solo moves you down and back much further than the standard Vintage Solo. For 6'-3" I think that would be superior for you. Give Mustang a call and they'll make a recommendation.

I've got an HD solo that also has a matching pillion. I'm 6'4" with a 36" inseam and it sets me back and lower. Long trips are no problem!

I just listed a HD Ralley Runner seat in the for sale section, although it isnt a solo, it will sit you low and back and also gives you a good size passenger section... I love this seat, but my wife hates it (note: she has severe back issues). So it is for-sale, will fit 08 later bagger models!

Check it out or email if interested... rerb95@yahoo.com
