I just sat on a '20 CVO Limited and the new seat addition isn't working for me. I'm 6'3" and the pad just below the rider backrest pushes you forward an inch or two basically making me sit on the tank. What were they thinking??

They were probably thinking that the average American male is 5” shorter than you.

Ahhh, there we go again.  Assuming the folks at the Motor Company THINK.

MOCO is thinking of future sales of seats they have hanging on the walls of every dealership out there.  Just like windscreens, hand & foot controls, speakers and a whole book filled with how to make the bike feel comfortable.

 :2vrolijk_21: :2vrolijk_21:    It's just a continuation of the business model they had that said sell under-performing motorcycles and then sell parts to make them run decently at an additional big price.  Since the EPA finally took much of that model away from them, they just shifted focus to all the ergonomics issues.  Meanwhile other companies make things like adjustable windshields standard, and powertrains that are out-of-the-crate still head and shoulders better than H-D's offerings.

Considering the way Harley avoids things like adjustable seats, there is no way the stock seats can fit everyone.  People come in a huge variety of sizes.  Over in the automotive industry we came up with a lot of features to make our seats fit more people, from nine way adjustability (fore/aft/tilt/high/low/lumbar/etc) of the actual seat, to adjustable steering wheels, and eventually to adjustable pedals.  And we still have people who don't fit well.  Harley hasn't made any effort at all by comparison.  They even eliminated the old adjustment for the footboards when they changed the frames for the touring models back in 2009.  They need to at least offer a choice of seats based on rider size at no extra cost, but I seriously doubt that will ever happen.
