Great seat for 2up riding..
I bought this seat because my wife refused to ride on the stock Harley seat. She said this new seat feels way better than stock and rides with me everywhere. Happy wife means Happy life so i strongly recommend this seat for anyone wanting to improve the 2up riding capability of their bike.

Very good seat for the money
It took me longer to get the seat out of the box than it did to put it on my bike. The seat forms to your butt, no slipping/sliding when riding or coming to a stop. Very well made and really looks good. Had it on my bike in about 10 minutes, took me about 20 to get it out of the box. They packed the seat as if a bomb was going off. Not complaining just took me by surprise. Not many company's do that anymore. Very satisfied with the seat and Revzilla.

Looks Good, Feels Great
I was a little skeptical about a touring seat at first because some can tend to look very Big and Bulky. This one is actually fits the bike better compared to the sundowner and even some others I have seen. A Burly Brand sissy bar, which can be found here on Revzilla, goes great with the seat and gives the bike that sweet 'retro' look! In terms of comfort, it is excellent. The seat puts you in a good touring position, making long rides very enjoyable. Getting on the seat at first, it may feel a little hard, but as you ride you will find you're butt and lower back are very well supported and comfortable. you will also find that the seat absorbs a lot more than the stock seat. In terms of having a passenger, which was one of the main reasons I got the seat, my passenger is more secure, comfortable and is also very satisfied with the seat as well.

Improves comfort, confidence and speed
Installed the Explorer Seat on my 2016 Sportster Superlow 1200t replacing the stock seat. I have ridden it several times now and have these impressions:

The Good:

The seat is high quality and I find that not only is it comfortable but as a new rider (less than 1 year) it improves my confidence and speed. The seat really smooths out my bike's ride and reduces transmitted vibrations and shocks by more than half. The deep bucket holds me firmly in position (with the stock seat I tended to slide around a bit). This has improved my confidence on the bike and allowed me to increase speed without feeling out of control. In terms of comfort, it definitely will allow me to go at least 50% longer. I am still in the break in period on the seat (first 500 miles) and I expect this to improve.

Ordering from Revzilla was very easy. The seat came two days earlier than expected. When I had sent a query about my order it was answered promptly.

The Not So Good:

The seat does not come with a grab strap, an easy way to add one or any instructions or advice from Saddleman for installing a strap. This is not a small matter as many states (including mine) require a hand hold for passengers. The stock seat has a bracket that snaps into the pan with hooks for the strap. I was able to pop the bracket off the stock seat. There is not place on the Saddlemen to snap that bracket into the new pan. But with effort and a bit of trial and error I was able to get the stock strap in place on the new seat.

The Saddlemen Explorer is narrower than the stock seat it replaces. I prefer the looks of the wider seat and I think a wider Explorer would be even more comfortable.

So my advice to Saddlemen is to have a wider version with a grab strap.

The cardboard box that the seat came in was damaged (crushed), and the plastic bag containing the seat had a tear. The seat was well wrapped in bubble wrap and was not damaged. When I took the seat out of the bag the bolts for the mounting hardware went out the hole in the bag and skittered across the garage (I was eventually able to find them).

So in summary I think the gel technology works very well in dampening vibrations and bumps, and the shape of the seat holds the rider nicely. It has already improved my comfort, confidence and speed (and I am still in the break in period). I would have liked a version that was a bit wider (similar to the stock seat it replaced) and with a grab strap or an easy way to reuse the stock one. Revzilla ordering was easy and delivery quicker than expected, but the packaging was damaged.

Overall - I am a satisfied customer
It's always a struggle - function or fashion? I wanted a tough sleek look but cushion and lumbar support - (I also got the back rest which I love) All in all - I am a satisfied customer

Is the seat back removable?
A shopper on Nov 14, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes - It is a nice option to have for long trips.
Is the back rest removable?
A shopper on Nov 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There's no back rest. It's one full seat with a slight dip that fits around your backside. It also has a seat for your rider in back. This seat is not much better than my stock seat. It's a little better but not all that much. I went and ordered a Mustang seat and there's a 100% difference in comfort. Should of ordered it from the start. Hope this helps. The Mustangs a little higher price wise, but worth every penny comfort wise.
I own a 2001 1200 custom Harley Davidson Sportster. Do you carry any products fo this model? Thanks Roger Morris
