Default Opinions on best seat for Sportster

So we're taking our shop 2003 Sportster 883 to Sturgis this year and we need a comfortable seat. We wanted to hear everyone's favorite seat! oh and the person riding it is about 6'2" 250 lbs. Thanks in advance for the recommendations!

Can only give my opinion on the stock seat and the Mustang Solo Vintage. Stock almost broke my back on bumps and hurt my rear almost immediately.. the mustang is comfortable for as long as I want to sit on it. It did raise my seating position by at least an inch, and looks a little bulkier than I'd have liked, but I love it.

Mustang Vintage Solo vote here too.

I also have a Sundowner, it's a pretty nice seat, but not in the same league as Mustang IMO.

Check out Sick Saddles. If the solo is as comfy as the 2up, you're in for a good time.

Mustang. I have their solo Tripper, but word on the forum is the vintage solo is the best.
