    Am I to assume there is NO stock seat that is comfortable for two up riding on touring models? Would like to hear from those that LIKE any of the stock seats, especially the ladies that ride passenger.

    My stock 2008 EG with the large padded backrest and the Misses can go from tank of gas to tank of gas no complaints. That equals about 240 miles.
    The problem might be if no backrest, she needs to hold on with her legs while using arms to not fall into you...Soooo a backrest might be in order for her to relax while being a passenger.

    Still have the stock seat on my 05FLTRI. I have several aftermarket seats for the RG and Heritage. The RG seat is one of the most comfortable seats I've seen.

    Good to hear from you Smitty. Demo'd a 2012 Road Glide Ultra last Saturday and was very impressed with the seat. Wife is leaving for a couple of months, but want to rent one when she get back in October to see how she feels about it. Sure appreciate everyone taking the time to give me your opinions.

    Stock seat on my "03 Ultra is just fine for me although I did add the Bead Rider beads to it for better air flow underneath me. No complaints here. :)

    I love my stock FLHX seat...after Mean City Cycle mod (double mem foam). Needed a tad more cushion & shaping.
