    Hey All, 

    I'm after recommendations on a comfy solo seat for my 2016 Streetbob?

    I was originally going to buy a Lepera Bare bones seat but after doing a 1100km round trip recently this is not practical.

    So tell me what you have or where to look.

    Cheers

    I'm running a corbin on my 2014 and a Mustang on my 2010.

    Both are considerably better than the barebones or the HD Brawler (Have ran them both previously too)

    For big miles the Corbin beats the bustang hands down but the mustang sits me lower so I actually enjoy it in "other" ways to the corbin.

    Have done 1000+km days on both seats.

    Both mustang and Corbin make good seats. I’ve had both and also prefer Corbin but they cost more. Corbin uses real leather. Their seats also seem firmer but firmer suits me better for longer rides despite soft seats feeling better to sit on for a little bit if that makes sense. You’ll be better off with either brand as both are good. 

    The mustang wide tourer seat is their most comfortable one but it’s also a bit bulky. A good compromise between comfort and looks (if that matters) is the mustang sport tourer seat. 

    Make sure you buy a seat with the option of putting a rider back rest as they’re great for long trips and at speed. Yeah they look crap but your back and comfort will thank you for the longer rides

    I use a Biltwell Exfill as my backrest on long trips - Its magic
