ED Big Touring or Standard 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
Hi all. Looking to possibly finally pull the trigger on a new seat. I am 6-2 230 and have a 2003 Silverado 1600. I hate my current seat and get about 45 minutes of ride time before I have to get off. I also feel like I'm sitting on top of rather in the seat. So I'm looking for a deeper seat pocket but also need all the leg room I can get. I know a lot of you have purchased and love this seat so looking for some guidance on the right seat for me. So is it the Big Tourer or Standard

Re:ED Big Touring or Standard 2 Years, 4 Months ago  
I'm about your size, and I'm happy with the Big Touring. The Standard, sits you lower, but it will also move you forward. I think they have a trial period, so if it doesn't feel right, you can try the other.
I have a Corbin that sits me lower on one of my bikes, but I have Beach bars on that bike, so the shift forward, isn't that big of a deal. I don't make a lot of long trips on the solo(Corbin) bike either. I think the Touring, is much more comfortable for extended periods, even if it sits me higher on the bike. YMMV.

I'm 6'1" & 215 lbs. & ride the standard. Fits me great & I find the lower sitting position very comfortable. As has been said, try one or the other for the trial period. If it's not for you, send it back & get the other. It's a win-win!

I'm 6'3" 200# and have the standard. I like sitting lower in the bike. If leg room is an issue, you can always extend the floorboards forward.

I'm 6'2", 220, got the big touring and love it - took a couple hundred miles to break in and now the difference over stock is amazing. I have not tried the standard - but I don't have very long legs, wear a 32 inseam, and I wouldn't want to give up an inch of the leg room I have with the big touring seat

6' 270 and I have the big touring recover on the stock pan. Saves about $100 and real easy to do. Very comfy
