Looking for a new seat

Hello all,
Looking for some suggestion and opinions on a New Seat.

I have a n 03 1800 C and need to replace the Stock seat. I have read some reviews on the Mustang and utlimate Seats but concerned with the Ultimate because due to my weight they recommend the Big Boy seat I am 5'6" and that pushes me further away from the Controls.
Any one have experience with the Corbin Seats (dual Touring?) or suggestions on another seat? Would need a passenger seat as well.
Thank you,
Steve

What is your weight? I'm 5'10", 215-ish. I checked their chart, and felt I was "in between". I didn't want further back, even after my risers, so chose the LowRider. LOVE it. It's a little close to the tank for "the Boiz", but def. not uncomfortable. You need to get with someone who has either, like at a group gathering, and trial fit for yourself.

For me I like the Corbin solo, I have a Corbin gunfighter which is nice, and I also have the duel tour which I have use three or four times! If you are wanting to buy the Corbin dual tour send me a PM I can make you a good deal on it. Good luck on your decision, but you're not going to go wrong with Corbin

I also like my Corbin young guns seat very much. It is a firm and large seat which provides a lot of support and has a perfect sleek look which fits the C model. However it is more a seat for the rider than the passenger, ideal for a short ride with the wife or girlfriend which helps if you want to ride alone with your buddies once in a while....

I'm telling ya, the Smart Partz baffle actually takes the edge off noticeably. I found it through J&P Cycles ($55 after shipping)

So hard to decide on a seat. They're expensive! It's not like you can go try 10 different seats and pick the one you want. I like the Mustang touring seat I got. Anything is better than that horrible stock seat!

Nice Bike! Where did you get the chrome side covers? Are they metal?
