    I have a 2015 Touring.

    These people rebuilt my seat a couple years ago and I love it. I had them put the original cover back on so you really cannot tell it is custom. I have their sheep skin also.

    Totally class act.

    Hello @Tbone, for several years I stuck to the stock seat with no concerns. However I did use a large BeadRider on the seat. It gave me great ventilation for hot rides and with a small amount of movement in the saddle, you get a nice circulatory massage.

    BeadRider looks to have doubled their prices since I bought mine but there are others out there that look to provide the same comfort. Going this way saves a lot of money. 15665381_10210066107542291_2378232258973875201_n.jpg

    I borrowed an Airhawk for a long leg of a trip last year and really liked it. My problem is, no matter what it is, after I'm in the same position too long, something starts to hurt. The Airhawk allowed me to shift my weight around so no one part of my ass was point-of-contact all the time. Gonna pick one up before next year's first long trip.

    Just did 3k on a Triumph Long Haul with the matching backrest. It was great. I also had the Mustang without backrest and really liked it for the 500 or so miles I had it, but sold it because I missed the backrest and went back to the Long Haul. If you are looking to just get a seat and go the Long Haul if you can find it or the Mustang (I don’t know if they make a Roadster version). Otherwise go with one of the custom options like Laam or Russel Day Long. Many of the Iron Butt Riders go with those two brands.

    Corbin is the way to go, brick-hard the day you buy it and it does not get any softer:D perfect for long-distance riding, a soft seat will kill your back.
