    I just got an 09 EG, and with the new frame etc. I know they sit a bit higher than previous ones.

    Being short legged, I'm looking for recommendations for a aftermarket seat that sits lower but doesn't give up comfort....

    I had the same issue on my 2010 FLHTK. Instead of buying a new seat I sent mine to Mean City Cycles. They reshaped and installed memory foam. The difference is now I can securely reach the pavement and the comfort level is great. I was getting butt and back pain before, now both are not an issue. The cost was less than the purchase of a new seat, and it was customized to my liking. And the customer service was great as well....I highly recommend.

    I put a LePera Maverick seat on mine. Much more comfortable and I did not need it but it also moves you lower

    +1 on Mean City Cycles. They worked on my seat and I am very pleased with the results. Give them a call and tell them what you want to accomplish and they will set you up with a delivery date.

    p.s.

    I should have mentioned in the first post, but I'm also interested in how the passenger comfort changed with any new/different seat.

    I did not have Mean City Cycles work on the passenger seat as it was fine for my wife. But they can work on that as well....
