I use a mustang solo seat with a backrest. I switched from a corbin after my back went bad (L4-L5). Made a big difference. The bike has to be enjoyable to ride first if it is your main ride. I also use the harley detachable backrest with the luggage rack. works great except my antenna hits it (so I take it off,,untill I get my fairing maounted antenna..but you don't care..you don't have a radio). I remove my backrest when my wife rides to give her more room. Bike looks clean when using the solo only!

HAVE HAD 3 MUSTANG SEATS, AND HAVE LIKED THEM ALL. I RIDE WITH A DRIVERS BACKREST TO MAKE ME SET UPRIGHT ON TRIPS, AND IT REALLY HELPS MY BACK. HAVE USED TOURING SEATS ON FATBOYS, ROAD KINGS AND ELECTRA-GLIDES.

Well lets see if I'm headed down the path of cool :1.) Pastel full face helmet, 2.) Pastel, colored, heated, armored outwear, 3.) Touring Seat (considering backrest), 4.)Wimpy SEII's (according to several forums general concensus), 5.)Ear plugs. And I'm just getting started. I never did blend in very well!

I think part of it is I'm not broken in yet. However, the lower back stuff is always there. You just get used to it (the pain) when you have no choice.

Just received word back from Mustang. They have no plans to make any seats for Screamin Eagle bikes (just deuce not sure). I'm not sure how SE bikes differ from stock as far as seats are concerned. I think Harley has same seats as accessories for SE deuce that they have for stock deuce. So measurments must be the same. So, the mustang seats for 04 stock Deuce when they come out should be fine for the SE. Don't ya think?

Installed battery wiring harness for Gerbing stuff tonight and changed out Badlander seat for Sundowner. We'll see how the seat is on my first "heated" spring ride. It looks fine on the bike also with the touring backrest. However, in the process of installing the seat I noticed some rear fender paint scratching under the luggage rack. Never noticed before? Not sure if I did it (don't see how I could have, I was paranoidly quite slow and careful installing seat) or whether the dealer did it when they installed luggage rack and sissy bar?
