Mustang vs. Ultimate Seats 10 Years, 3 Months ago  
Hate to open this topic again but I need to make a decsion.
I have narrowed my two seat choices down to either
Mustang or Ultimate.
What would give me the most room.
I am 6'4&quot; 260#.
I need more comfort than the stock and do not want to be pushed forward.
As usual I want to thanks everybody for the input in advance.

Just from what I've heard... the mustang pushes you forward. I was getting some info together also S7, I'm going with the ultimate from what I've heard so far. I'm sure the guys that have them will jump in shortly to give you thier views.

Re:Mustang vs. Ultimate Seats 10 Years, 3 Months ago  
Recentley I have been looking at changeing my seat, currantly I have a mustang with backrest.It is verry comfy but would like more room. So I looked at the ultimate, corbin,and mustang on bikes from a side veiw and it looked like corbin would set you back the most, so I bit the bullet and ordered a corbin dual touring, it will be here tomorow.Hoprfully my eyeballs didnt screw me. Smooth just put a corbin on his, here is the post http://roadstarclinic.com/component/option,com_fireboard/Itemid,187/func,view/id,44811/catid,49/ You can see where it will sit you. I will be selling my mustang seat soon!!!!!!!!!

hope this helps.

I am 6ft 215lbs with 34&quot; inseam. I can tell you for sure the mustang moves you forward about 3&quot;. That is enough to drive me crazy on long trips. Comfy seat but I'm riding on the gas tank. Great for passenger but crap for taller drivers. IMHO

I bought an Ultimate a couple of months ago and love it. I'm 6'2&quot; with 32&quot; inseam and around 270. It pushes me forward a little but not to where it's uncomfortable. Very comfy.

Re:Mustang vs. Ultimate Seats 10 Years, 3 Months ago  
I have had my Corbin touring seat now for 5 years and love the feel of the deep seat which supports the lower back on long rides and then it also has the back rest which helps support the upper portion of the back. My wife and I do long rides, we have done 780 miles in a day going to Sturgis and the corbin seat is very comfortable. I like to sit low and back and I also have beach bars which gives me the ability to sit back like I'm in a recliner chair. This is just my opinion and I looked at a lot of seats before buying.

I went and took a shot of my seat from the side to hopefully give you a good view. As you can see you sit low and back.
