HD Cafe Solo Seat vs. HD Reach Seat

OK, the stock seat sucks on long rides. It's OK for short city runs, but anything longer and my @ss gets sore. I find I'm even trying to stand up on the pegs, or stand at a traffic light!

I don't really like the looks of the HD Tall Boy seat so I'm thinking of either the Solo, or Reach.

I'm 5'10", 29" inseam and sat on a "Reach" yesterday. I liked it but I'm wondering if I will after riding any length because it does seem to move you forward in your seating position. Would I be better off ordering the Solo seat?

TBH the "Mustang" is too pricey for my tastes.

Thanks

I have good aftermarket Suspension and a mustang seat. On long rides my a$$ still hurts, Not as bad as stock. Don't buy the tall boy it is just as bad. I'm only assume the reach seat is the same. I Hate being negative. I would save up and purchase something better.

The Mustang seat here is over twice the price of the HD Solo, "almost $500.00 CDN + shipping..................I can't justify that.

I can buy the HD Solo, from the dealer, here, locally for $257.95 CDN

We can make you a custom XG seat and add dense memory foam and a custom cover to match your bike. We also have new DIY re-cover kits for the XG on our site so you can also modify your foam or add memory foam or gel or whatever you want for a fraction of the price of a new "custom" seat. tuffside.com

can't compare apples and oranges..
Custom handmade seat VS mass produced made in India seat... all depends on what you like i guess.

Funny, I didn't know the seats were "made in India" .............The bike wasn't even made there.

Oh well, I've sat on the HD Solo.

Before I spend that kind of money, sight unseen, or "sat on", I'll go with what feels better.

I already replaced the seat on my C50T with an "Ultimate Seat" after comparing that to the "Mustang". If "Ultimate" made a seat for the XG750 I'd buy one in a heart beat.
