Sundowner

I've got the HD sundowner seat on mine. Much more comfortable on long
rides and better lower back support.

Pics in my gallery.

IMO the stock seat is about as comfy as Ive seen for stocker....no need to swap out for me!....

you saw this alot more on PRE wide frame Vs(02-06) do to the thinner seats on those years....while the new 07/08 wide frame seats are wider and therefor more comfy on long hauls..

only change I made was added a AW pillion for the lower profile look.

I also have the Sundowner on my DX. The stock seat looks great and is perfect for short rides. I discovered the lack of lower back support and horrible angle that it puts my back at during a 5 hour ride and knew that I needed a different seat for the long hauls. I looked around but didn't find anything that IMO would look good on the DX. The Sundowner has a good shape and looks and is very comfy(I had a chance to ride a friends V with it). Plus I only needed one seat cause I don't ride any passengers(gf has her own bike). Like others there are some pics in my gallery of the Sundowner with the factory passenger seat. I need to get some new pics in there, I just put on the Jug Huggers and I am being lazy.

Too much padding.....

I always thought the stocker seat had way too much padding. I went minimalist and couldn't be happier.

You were looking for pix. Here's a Sundowner with custom skins and a gel pad installed. Rides great.

Rita still checks the forum from time to time. She suggested she was considering going back into the seat buisness.

I got the Sundower last week . I rode with it last weekend and I was well pleased with the improvement over the stock seat. My two lower disc in my back are bulging and I need help and found it in this seat.

I am one of the few who didnt think the sundowner was worth a plug nickel. For me, I took the stock seat and re foamed it. Beats the sundowner hands down for me and it was only $75. Ill play with gel packs and such maybe different coverings. But my ideal seat will be the one the DX was advertised with then cruelly taken away from me...The Willie G seat.
( Imagine how bad it will suck with all my willie g hype that when i put the seat on the dx it was to totally blow, keep the karma demons close I always say)

I like the DX seat, although I havent done anything other than sit on it at the dealers. Im used to riding a couple hundred miles on the CFR, you really have to be a trooper (especially the wife).

I'm also not a big fan of gel pads, they seem to stiffen the seat up and makes me sore much sooner. I think I'll bring my stock DX seat to a local upholsterer who does good work and let him shave it down and back a bit and throw some memory foam in there.
