I agree with all of this. I have a DX and ditched the stock rear seat for the aw. It makes a world difference in the lines of our bikes. 100% better! I like it so much I almost don't care how she feels. It's a thin line between what my girl wants and her bossing me around about modding my bike to my liking which I will not let her do. My girl has been complaining about the lack of sissy bar which I refuse to put on b/c its damn ugly! She doesnt like having it so much she wont ride with me w/o it. :blahblah:. I have the mini sissy bar (the smallest HD one that is one step above nothing) on order also. She rides so little its gonna have to do or she is also SOL. I sold my sport bike for the DX b/c I thought she would feel more comfortable on it. Now she is breaking balls about my DX....I told her I should buy another sport bike and see how she likes that again.Hopefuly it isnt TOO bad. I plan on keeping the seats on it and not changing them. She doesnt ride enough now to justify doing much. I have the mini sissy bar coming in the mail today. Want to keep the slow/sleek look. If she complains too much I'll see about adding in a gel pad but otherwise shes SOL
I agree that the Sundowner pillion is WAY better than stock, but don't kid yourself about it looking good on the bike.Stock seats are horse poo, only good for being there,useless for a passanger unless you a sadist...mine swopped out for a touring seat, thicker, wider and LOADS more comfort for the wiffie...also looks good.

I keep my stocker pillion on the bike until the wife decides to ride along, then I swap out to the Sundowner.
