quality seat, super easy to install. if using with a ***** bar, your ***** should be narrow because if wide it won't really look right. over all i love the look and would recommend.
I couldn't edit my previous review yet there's something I learned worth mentioning that also brings this seat down to 3 stars. The seat doesn't seem to have a water barrier between the cover and foam so the foam soaks up water/rain pretty quickly. I got caught in a thunderstorm 4 days ago and every day since I still have to sit on a plastic bag to keep my jeans from getting soaked from the water that is still saturating the foam. Looks like I'll have to remove the vinyl cover to install a moisture barrier because this is unacceptable for a motorcycle that actually gets ridden.
While the seat is very comfortable for me sitting on the front, the passenger part of the seat is very uncomfortable according to my girlfriend. She will not go on any extended rides with me until I change it. It also seems a little flimsy with the way it mounts, the seat needs another mount in the center of the seat to keep it from moving. Long story short, I will probably end up looking for another king and queen style seat.
My seat was nicely made using relatively thick vinyl, what I would consider upholstery grade, not that thin decorative grade stuff I see sold at sewing/craft stores. Thankfully the seat has minimal padding since big puffy marshmallow seats are uncomfortable to me on long rides and I like that the king section is flat, uniform and low which allows me to shift around if need be between ~150 mile fuel stops. Although there's supposedly an internal frame I would not trust the backrest with anyone adult sized riding pillion without a good ***** bar for additional support. But best of all I like the radical look of this K&Q seat that sets it apart from most others... it transports me back to the wild days of the 60s and 70s when I was a kid and it seemed like 'anything goes' when building a chopper.
