    Hi there,I'm after some ideas on a passenger seat (easy to remove),for my sportster 1200 custom,fitted with a 'le pera' single rider seat,as I like the look of the single seat on the bike,but want to take a passenger from time to time,so thanks for any help or links to a suitable removable pillion pad,the bike is a 2006.:)

    Check out this website Sportster Motorcycle Seats and Pillion Pads

    At the bottom of the page you'll find the the lick and stick suction type pillions. I had one of these for my 05 sporty, it worked well for 'short' rides.

    Thanks for the welcome,I actualy get to pick up my sportster later in the week,and managed to find a nice rider's seat on ebay for the right money second hand,I will sort a few things out on the bike to suit my wants,it comes as unmolested & in fairly good cosmetic condition,your link to the passenger pad ticks off one of the changes I wish to make.
    I have always yearned for a harley,& have finaly jumped on board!

    I made one but think that It would have been been easier to buy something all ready out there.

    Here is a better shot. It's attached to the seat rear mount and suction cups.

    The rear fender also has a hole for addition attachment point, the blind mate threaded insert and chrome/stainless threaded fastener is about $8 or $9... and you can get clear protector to prevent paint from being scuffed...because it will with suction cups (they pick up dirt that can work it's way underneath), like sandpaper. :s
