It is very nice, a definite improvement over my 06' HD Ultra CVO. Even my wife liked it too as a passenger and I was glad to hear that!

Roadmaster is the first bike that I feel that I do not need to purchase an aftermarket seat. It is great and my wife likes it a lot as well. Had a Mustang seat on Harley that I traded in and the factory Roadmaster is better that the Mustang.

My wife can put in about 85-90 miles on a normal ride before her tailbone starts aching. As soon as her cheeks hit the seat on our Roadmaster demo, over my shoulder I hear "Oh this works". GREAT seat.

I'm a big fan of Mustang seats Ballgame, if that Roadmaster seat is better then a Mustang, I need to try it out. I can tell you the seat on my Vintage while not terrible, is no Mustang.

After putting 3000 miles on my RM over these last few days, I am thinking about having Russell Day-Long rebuild my seat as it doesn't have nearly enough support/cushioning.

I wouldn't say my RM seat is better than my Mustang touring saddle was, but I'd say it's real close. My wife is enjoying the pillion.

The seat is the main reason we took a bath (or took it, well... you know) on our '14 Vision Tour to move to the Roadmaster. It's the best factory seat available, even over the infamous Honda Goldwing.

I just bought a 17 (I think they are a little different than the 15?). I love mine. Cushy without being mushy. I have cronic low back pain and so far so good.
Btw, mine is black with white cross stitch. I like the tan as well but not on the color I chose.

Too soft for my tastes but I'm 6'4" 250 lbs. It may be fine for a smaller/lighter rider. My wife does like the rear section just fine.

I may be getting a Corbin and the I'd be willing to sell my 2016 black with only 9K on it.

Can you give me a week or so? I have some carpal tunnel surgery coming up this week and I have to get some stuff done ahead of time. I have to get an idea on Corbin's turn around time from my dealer before I pull the trigger on selling mine.

No problem, good luck with the operation, I have lots of time, just let me know when you ready, don't rush on my account. Take time and let it heal spring is on the way......hopefully. lol. Thanks Mike

I've got 13,500 miles on my RM and am truly disappointed in the seat. I did a 325 mile ride before Christmas and stopped half way through the ride to put the gel seat pad on. Too late, paid the price for a few days and didn't ride for 2 weeks because of the seat. I'm looking at Corbin but swaying heavily to the Ultimate Tall Boy. I had one previously on another bike and could do 10 hours nonstop in comfort!

I would love to get a ultimate but the bank (wife) would have a heart attack if I bought one right now, can't have that she loves to ride. Hahaha. If I don't like the tour seat I can sell it. I don't mind the chieftain seat but the bank would like just a little more. Like I haven't heard that before. Lol. Mike

must be an epidemic, I just had carpal tunnel surgery last December. The healing is slow, but I've had no numbness or tingling since, and I'm not dropping things unintentionally. Heal fast.
