Does the Road Zeppelin sit back any further for tall riders?
« on: September 16, 2018, 07:57:20 PM »

On Ultra, stock seat makes me feel like I'm sitting right on top of the tank, and seem to put too much weight in uncomfortable spots as a result.  Tallboy may sit further back, but doesn't seem to have the padding or suspension I'd like (haven't demo'd one yet).

The Road Zeppelin looks interesting, with feature to change settings on the go.
But, does it sit rider any further back?  Additional seat height not a concern for me at 6'4".

Anyone have experience with the Road Zeppelin?  Thanks, Bubba

Try the hammock seat. Have one on my 18 CVO & I'm 6'3" and its good for me. Can always send seat to Russell Day Long & have it built for you...
