I have the sundowner on mine because my wife would not ride with me without it. When we test drove the bike it had the stock seat on it and we barely made it out of the dealer parking lot before we went back to ask them to put the sundowner on it for us. Now we ride long trips and everything is cool. Something else that might help for comfort would be some foot peg extenders. I put a set on that were made for a dyna I think. I had them on my sportster and they worked fine. Had to grind on them a little to get them on the rod. they drop the passengers feet out about 2 inches and down about 2 inches. The position of the riders legs will definitely help the seat be more confortable.
