Looks like it would push you forward to much.
I would like to be sitting back more towards the rear of the stock seat.
Thinking of having stock seat remade without the hump on the back and wider and flatter.
The Mustang wide vintage I have on a sporster is comfortable and doesn't move you forward like the Tripper looks it would.
To California it's 327.99 including shipping and tax on the 299 base price. Should be able to have a stock seat redone for less.

According to the owner of this one it doesn't move you forward any, I suspect I'll be finding out for myself soon.

Only a fool would attempt it, and God help me, I am that fool.

I had 3 inches of foam and a new cover added to my stock set for $162.00.
I wanted the height so I could move back on the seat to get some leg room.
I am going to have the seat redone with a gel pad this winter to help with back problems.
A good gel pad can run $80.00.

I have had mustang seats on other bikes and found them to be very comfortable. I may pick one up just to have. I am waiting on some ride reports first. Looks way better than all others IMO

did a 381 mile ride today...the Mustang seat is definitely more comfortable than my OEM seat but is in no way a long distance cruiser seat.


You wanted pics like these?
