Sundowner is the perfect solution, IMHO. I feel the rider's seat is much better than stock, and the passenger seat is tons better. Because of the taller/thicker passenger pillion, it creates an improved lower-back support for the rider. Nice, comfortable bucket.

Passenger gets the biggest improvement, wider, more padding, more front to rear room.
You get wider, slight moved forward, better padding. Worth it!

The first thing I did when I got my B was to put on a sundowner.. I can literly ride all day and be quite comfy. Definately worth doing.

Love mine. Some people complain about the look, but honestly, Ive gotten so used to mine that when I put my original seat back on, it looked funny to me.

Great seat

Love mine. (5"5') Much easier on the ass, front of saddle wider and padded around airbox cover and frame. I've got rear controls, so my sitting position is different from most "taco riders".

Can't speak for the passenger seat. I'm more concerned with them being flung off from the g-forces, than with their comfort anyway.

As usual, TheMoCo can't come up with a replacement passenger seat that doesn't require the addition of a fender plate that takes up 1/2 the fender. Since I've got a fender coming out of painters with the taillight bucket smoothed off - last thing I want to do is cover it with a frikkin mounting plate.

Hat's off to "The Morons From Milwaukee" again...

You and I are about the same height. The SunDowner is far better than the stocker. I recommend adding the sissy bar and pad for the passenger. The wife said it made a huge difference on longer rides. The look of the SunDowner takes some getting used to, but the amount of comfort it provides makes up for its looks.
