Thinking about this seat for my Heritage would love to see some reviews before I pull the trigger.

Where did you find an invisible seat?

I don't know which seat you are considering, but I am very happy with my Mustang solo seat with riders backrest.

I've had the Ultimate on my last two Fatboys. It's SUPER comfy, but it IS huge. I use the stock seat unless I'm going on a long ride, three hours or more one way. Then I stick on the Ultimate, takes about two minutes. I also usually put in the back rest, too.

I rode from Tallahassee to Biloxi with the Ultimate, with the wife on the back with her Ultimate passenger seat, and we never once stopped because of butt ache. It really is the most comfortable seat I've ever ridden on. Well worth the money.

I tried 4 seats on my Slim last year. Stock, Mustang, and solo Corbin and then dual Corbin. Save yourself time money and aggravation and go with Corbin there is no comparison with anything else. Yes it os pricey but you will find one for 300$ on ebay and man this is the seat you need. Mustang was kinda there but nothing close to Corbin comfort in the long run. I will never bother with any other seat period.

Yes Yes Yes. Love mine. The stock seat was killing me, I couldn't ride more than 30 minutes before my tailbone hurt so bad. I went for a Saddleman Explorer which was better but too hard. Ultimate is great and has the same studs as the stock seat, this time around you don't need to buy a passenger seat as it works fine with the stock one. I did get the backrest too.

Thinking seriously about going with the Ultimate going to give them a call in the morning.
On the web site they want you to give you height and weight yet they say the seat is in stock.
I will talk with them in the morning. Thanks to all who replied.

I have one in my 09 Heritage and I think it's a great seat. I have it with the backrest.

Just noticed today that a new Ultimate Seat shop has opened (or may be opening soon) in a brand new complex of store fronts at the North end of the Destination Daytona Complex (up the road past J&P). Was just passing and did not stop ot see if it was open or not. Plan to check it out the next time I'm over that way.

I'm sure some of those who will be making the trip down here in March for Bike week will be happy they are here.

I hope they will have seats you can actually touch, feel and sit-on and it is not just a glorified place that takes orders.
