Mustang Wide Tripper Passenger Seat For Harley Dyna 2006-2016
Both solo seat and passenger pillion are excellent!
The stock seat on the Harley had to go, so after reading up on a few reviews and forums, I went with this Mustang seat and I'm really glad I did! The real drive for getting a new seat came from my wife's extreme displeasure with the stock "brick" on the Dyna. I went with the solo + passenger configuration because I love the solo seat look when it's just me. I also really liked the diamond stitch pattern and low-profile.
My wife LOVES the new pillion seat and I really like the construction of the solo. There's a specific "pocket" area to this seat that allows me to ride for hours without any real discomfort. The vinyl covering is very well constructed, and the padding on the solo is just enough to provide comfort but still not look like a couch cushion on the bike. The pillion is more couch cushion looking, but is extremely comfortable.
A few things to consider with this seat - there's a lot less to this saddle than the stock one. It really follows the lines of the bike well, but does drop you down just a bit from the stock seat. There's no negative to this, in my opinion, as it is 100x more comfortable than the stock seat, but it does change your riding position just slightly. I'm 6'3" and have no complaints at all about this, but just be aware of it.
The fitment on my Dyna wasn't just exactly perfect. The tab for the seat screw wasn't flush with the fender and required a small amount of pressure to get the seat bolt into the nut, but after I cinched it down, the tab bent with the pressure and now fits fine. I had this same issue on the pillion seat as well. I used the stock bolt to again cinch the tab down to the fender and then I was able to replace it with a thumb screw for easy removal. Again, none of this was a problem and I'm unsure if this is actually intended by Mustang. Nor did it make me feel like there was a quality issue, it just required a little finessing.

Great add on for your riding partner.
The Mustang Solo Wide Tripper is a great seat and looks really slick. Unfortunately I can't take my wife on rides with just that and the pillion really comes in handy. Easy on/off since i use a thumbscrew at the rear threaded point. The hardware that it comes with is an allen bolt with button washer, allowing easy installation and removal to get back to that slick solo look. Even with the pillion it looks great. The diamond stitching looks as good as the solo seat and the seat is nice and comfy. The width is good for longer trips, about as wide as the OEM seat on my '13 FLD, if not a tad wider.

I was somewhat skeptical how comfortable this Mustang seat might be given how thin it is and I need to be able to ride long multi state rides. I got this in diamond stitch and it's perfect. Looks awesome and is really comfortable. Did 400 miles in one day with no problems. You do sit slightly lower than stock. And the rear of the seat actually holds you better than I expected, somewhat curved up to give you some support. And don't be misled by the wide part. It's not wide compared to stock, still more narrow, but is wider than the other Mustang seat that was way too narrow. My thighs actually rested on the battery cover with that one. This wide one is the one to get.

Seat looks great but leaves room for improvement
As a larger male (275+) this saddle leaves much to be desired. I would only place this marginally better than stock as far a comfort. The saddle really thins out in the front which may be good for some but really makes me wish there was a little more padding. My inner thigh gets really hot due to the lack of padding which positions my thigh nearer to the rocker covers.
The marine grade vinyl feels great to the touch but has a little too much grip while I'm wearing jeans. It becomes very hard for me to "re-adjust" mid ride. The saddle dropped me down about 1" which I liked but I have to sit closer to the tank because the rear of the seat is really hard.
I experience some numbness in my rear end right around an hour into the ride. If i stand on the peg for a second it goes away but i have to wiggle around for the next few moments to find a comfortable position again.The appearance of the diamond stitched seat is great, minus the large mustang logo at the tank.
I really want to find that saddle that carries the lines and look of the bike well but also is really comfortable, my search isn't over yet.
