F6B Midrider Seat and Driver Backrest - Standard or Deluxe Model
Our Honda® Gold Wing F6B Midrider seat is designed so you sit in the seat, not on the seat. We have maintained the stock ride height and our lower back support area is 7 inches high and more vertical for total support and will sit you a little closer to the handle bars. If you feel your reach to the handlebars is too far on the stock seat (no bend in your elbows) then our Midrider seat is the answer for a much more relaxed riding position with full lower back support and with our driver backrest installed you will have total back support. The driver section of the seat is 19 inches wide.
The passenger section of our F6B seats have been given as much research and development as the driver's seat. The inner leg thigh area and butt area of the seat has been totally reengineered to provide perfect support. The passenger section of the seat is 14 inches wide with comfort to spare. Put them in comfort heaven.
Our Midrider seat provides a comfort level so good you won't want to get off your bike on those long rides.
Ultimate Removable Driver Backrest

The driver backrest quickly and easily slides in and out with a built in spring loaded plunger lock that is part of the backrest hardware permanently mounted inside the seat.

Leather Versus Vinyl and Rain Covers
Leather seating in our homes or vehicles works well for some users however leather seats do not weather well left out in the sun and rain.
In my opinion, there are no advantages with a leather seat on a motorcycle.
Most people cannot visually tell the difference between our premium marine grade Vinyl and Leather unless they are side by side and then it needs to be pointed out which is which.
Neither Leather or Vinyl breathes except through the stitching.
Neither seats, Vinyl or Leather are waterproof. A Vinyl seat will let water in through the stitching and Leather will do the same and also soak through the hide if it gets really wet.
Durability is similar but our premium Vinyl will hold its shape and new look longer than Leather.
A rain cover should be used to prevent water from seeping through the stitches into the comfort foam.
We recommend you cover your seats with our waterproof ride on rain covers when your bike is sitting or riding in the rain.
Enjoy the ride again,
