The seat itself looks to be good and is comfortable, especially for the passenger. However, the design of the seat exposes the tops of the side plate covers just under the rider. In particular the battery and electrics. The factory seat fully covers the tops of these plates to shield from rain. Depending on your bike, I don't know if I would recommend this seat.

Easiest to install on honda shadow aero. Looks much better than the original on the bike.

Waited to review the seat until I had some time on it. My first impression was "Wow what a nice seat"! Looked fantastic out of the box, very easy to put on. Looks good on my Yamaha V Star 1100A. At the first sitting I thought that the front seat was a little small for me. A few blocks down the road I was thinking not too bad. After a few miles it's so comfortable I don't even think about it anymore! It does move me forward just a little and maybe down a bit also. The wife loves her new seat as well. I looked long and hard at the other seats before I picked this one out. Not a seat for big people, average to small it's great. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this seat again. HUGE improvement over the stock seat (which is the worst I've ever sat on).

Quality is great. If you want to put cover on using the strings to keep it in place, good luck doing it by yourself. Once you think you have the one side in place the other side pops off. Otherwise, other option is to remove old cover and staple new one on, unfortunately you need a heavy duty stapler, a normal staple gun will not be strong enough to go through the material. Now I need to buy a heavy duty stape gun to put the cover on correctly.

On my Suzuki C50, it much more comfortable than the stock saddle. It lets me sit lower on the bike, letting my feet be flat on the ground. The rear lumbar is great. Pretty comfortable saddle. But a couple downsides: the gel gets really hot in the summer when the bike sits in the sun; a few chrome studs fell off and I can't find a shop that can replace them.

I bought this pad to try and get away from a tailbone issue with the seat on my Softail but it wasn't the answer. I think it's still do to the design of the seat. This gel pad is made quite well and fits my seat great. Not sure how ones bottom would fair against the vinyl or the buttons on a long trip. Price wise I believe was fair compared to others on the market. I plan on going to a chopper style solo seat and we'll see how it works then.
