Hey Duders,

Im looking to replace my sully's two up cobra style seat with something more comfortable. I recently upgraded to from an 883 to a 1250, and the new found acceleration really makes me cling to the bars to keep from sliding off the seat. Anyone have some good suggestions? Really I just need something with more of a hump to keep me in the saddle.

I got this from Jireh cycles about 5 years ago I think I paid $50 for it, real leather, little wider than most (13") requires some kind of mounting kit I have a La Rosa (Ebay $100) it can be spring mounted, however I chose to cut the spring tabs and insert a little rubber bumper, very comfy with just a little kick up in the rear to keep you in the seat.

I've been looking for a Cherokee seat actually. I cant seem to find one anywhere. I've also been thinking about a spring seat too, doing a swing arm mounted fender and sissy bar. The problem is, I doubt it is safe to go two up on a bike with a swing arm fender.

Hey 7- how was the install of this La Rosa kit? Also, how is maintenance on the batter etc. effected by having the kit installed?

Thanks,
Ryan

I have this one I took off my bike a while ago. Stock solo seat with 2-up pad. It's really comfy, just to bulky for me.
