1300C riders: Mustang Sport Touring vs. Ultimate Midrider

8582 Views 31 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  msstep
Planning to finally replace the seat on my 1300C in the next couple weeks. The wife can't take the stocker any more.

Does anyone have advice on the Ultimate Midrider vs. the Mustang Sport Touring (with rider backrest)? I'm a somewhat big guy: 6' 4" / 245 lbs.

I like the idea of the backrest, but the Mustang looks like it's going to sit a little lower than the Ultimate? Being kinda tall, I'm afraid I'm going to be a little folded up if I sit much lower. How's the back support on the Midrider? (It's not available with a rider backrest).

Thanks in advance!

My choice is more cosmetic I suppose. I don't want some stitched "X" on an otherwise curvy smooth seat that looks OEM.
