    Does anyone have any experience with a reach seat? I have a 2007 Nightster and suffer from tooshortitis, as a result I have to reach for my forward controls.

    Has anyone tried the reach two up seat as shown on the HD site?

    Thanks for your coments.

    I bought a LePera Up Front Silhouette & I love it!!! (I'm 5'2")
    The Up Front moves you 3" closer to the handlebars with a lower seating area.
    It's not a 2-up seat though....... Harley Davidson Seats :: Custom and Exotic Seats for Harleys by LePera

    Traded out my stock seat on the 09 SG for a Reach seat. It moved me forward a little over an inch and set me flat footed...Im about 5ft8. I love mine and I think I made a good purchase.

    I have a Drag Specialties Leather Flame Seat that works for me, though I did add a Gel/Sheepskin cover for the pillion for 2-up riding...

    I dont have the 2 up. I have the solo reach and it works pretty well for me. It is also much more comfortable then the stock seat.

    I bought a reach seat mainly for the wider pillion seat and yes I feel a lot closer to the controls even tho it's only 1". I'm 5'8" on a 08 N/T. Also bought a corbin key lock solo which is a lot firmer than both stock and reach seats which will mould around my bum.
