Nice seat...
This is a nice seat. It does start out quite firm...manufacturer says it will and break-in over time. I like a firm seat, it just starts a little too firm, hence only 4 stars for comfort. The fit is excellent...actually seems to fit better than the old stock seat I replaced it with. 2 stars for value...more than $400.00 seems a little steep to me. And now for my style rating...I ordered the seat w/back rest but didn't receive the backrest. Inquired w/ customer service and was told it is a warranty issue and provided the manufacturer's contact number. Contacted the manufacturer and it was not a problem to get the back rest as this was about the 12th time in a year a Dennis Kirk customer had gotten their seat without the backrest. Waited another week and received it. My rating reflects the fact that the back rest has a diamond pattern stitched in it and the seat does not so they don't match.
Overall, I'd buy it again because the quality makes up for what I considered to be lacking.

Finally Comfortable
Before I bought my bike I test rode several. None of the seats were what I would call comfortable. As the passenger I would end up sitting on my hands after a couple of hours to ease the pain. So when I bought my '84 Goldwing, I researched the market and invested in this seat. Wow! I am so comfortable. My guy didn't think he needed anything new, but is so totally sold on this seat. Says he has never felt so good riding (he has a bad back). Since my bike will be with me for years, this is a great investment.

Great Upgrade to my ride.
I purchased this seat for my GL1800A . When it arrived in a few days, I installed it and took a 100 mile ride. It seemed hard at first but after a few miles I understand why, because the seat requires breaking in to you. This seat looks great and the only concern I have is that where the neck of the seat touches the fuel tank, it is elevated about an inch. I hope this condition settles down after a few more miles... yes I have it hooked under the bracket, its the fiberglass pan that is made a little high. The gel fits great and gives much needed comfort for me and my wife.
