Needs more break in time
Have only rode on the the seat a couple of times so far. Like to the fit of the saddle and the back support. Very stiff right now and need more time to decide on the comfort. It does add some height from the stock seat and I don't touch the ground as comfortably as I used to. Like another review, this seat does leave the frame exposed. At first this bothered me, but now it looks normal and I don't pay any attention to it. The seat has a great style to it and overall like the way it looks.

Not What I Expected
My girlfriend and I ride 2 up most of the time and I wanted a more comfortable seat for us both. I bought this seat and the Mustang Wide Vintage seat for comparison... see my review of that seat too.

I was disappointed with the Explorer seat right from the installation. The tongue on the underside of the front seat wasn't attached squarely which resulted in the front of the seat sitting at an angled position instead of being squarely behind the gas tank. We also noticed this seat is longer than stock as it had to be wedged slightly in and around the sissy bar brackets. (This wasn't an issue with the Mustang seat).

The other thing I noticed with this seat is that it is narrower up towards the front of the seat which revealed move of the bike frame than I preferred. This wouldn't be a bad thing for short legged drivers however. The rear base of the seat is also narrower than stock and revealed more fender. The unfortunate part to this is the fender had rub marks from the stock seat and these were clearly visible and I didn't want to take the time and effort to buff my rear fender.

In summary the seat itself looked good but once installed I didn't like the look on my bike due to the quality issue and the fender reveal. I did NOT drive the bike with the seat installed and can't speak to its comfort. I ultimately returned the seat and kept the Mustang seat and we are very happy with it.
