    I have a 2010 Ultra Classic that I bought new for long road trips with my wife. I am 5'8" tall and the stock seat just didn't work. I changed it to a reduced reach seat and have rode for two years with it. It is not comfortable for long rides (over 500 miles/day). Recently purchased a Mustang Low Profile seat but it is too wide for my inseam. Any comments for a comfortable cruising 2/up seat for a short guy?

    Welcome, I also run a Reach seat on my 09 EG... and .. lowered rear shocks, back rest, hwy pegs and a vented seat pad. I'm about your size and can ride all day,no problem and I'm not a young guy anymore. I also like to run about 500mi a day on trips. what really made the difference for me was adding the back rest and pegs.
