Bought this to replace my stock seat to get rid of the sissy bar, larger double stock sea and luggage rack for a more subdued rear end. The seat itself allows you to sit a little lower and is very comfortable. My wife won't ride in the winter so I won't be able to rate the passenger seat until later. Seat came with brackets that didn't match my stock seat. The front bracket opening had to be modified from an elongated openning to a circle. I used a Dremel. That sucked. The bracket on my stock seat that is under my tail bone was absent on the new seat. Neither the seller nor Saddleman would provide me the correct brackets/hardware despite offers to purchase them. The rear bracket on the new seat has to be boltet to the rear fender. This means that the seat needs to be unbolted to get at the tools and battery. Can you imagine needing a tool on the side of the highway and it's bolted under the seat! Not very bright! I will edit this review with regards extended riding times and comfort when the weather warms up.
