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.
I purchased your seats for my ’04 Yamaha Road Star over 3 years ago. My wife and I have put on 20,000 miles since then. Your seats have made all those mile completely enjoyable! We can easily put in 500 to 600 mile days and get off the bike feeling good. After 3 years of use the seats look like new, the quality is impressive. He seats are actually more comfortable now than when they were new, they seem to form fit to you, the more you ride. Your seats are worth every penny that was spent on them. Thanks for producing such a GREAT product. - Bruce Youngdahl - Silverthorne, CO
I rarely write any reviews and never a positive one. I understand how difficult it is to choose an aftermarket seat so I feel compelled to let others know of my experience with my Ultimate seat. I purchased the seat for my 2005 roadstar last spring. I had only rode a couple hundred kms before taking it on a long trip. We rode from Toronto to California and back. I traditionally get a sore back ,butt and shoulders during longer rides. Honestly I could have turned around and done it again on that seat. 12,000+ kms!! Thank you Ultimate seats for your product. - Shawn Byers - Cambridge ON
Just wanted to drop you a note about my Ultimate Seat I bought a few months ago. Prior to buying your seat, on my last two bikes (Honda Magna and a Suzuki Boulevard) I had Mustang Seats so I thought I would give your seat a try on my current bike (2007 Yamaha Roadliner S). I believe that when it comes to comfort, your seats are better than the Mustang Seats. In fact I noticed two things after I installed your seat; 1) the pain in my tail bone went away; and 2) the vibration in the handlebar grips greatly reduced, and now I get very little numbness in my hand after riding long time. I should be getting my backrest tomorrow so I can't wait to see how well that feels. - Keep up the good work!
This is what this bike wanted, One sweet ride with a sweet seat. No more complaints from either behind. Well worth having to cut back on cigars and lunches for awhile.
Hi Des, I would just like to thank you for my order from Australia, for my Yamaha XVS 650 custom. I am very happy with the seats. I ordered mainly for the pillion seat for my wife, and she is more than happy with it, even in a short time. They were very easy to fit and had the old removed and new fitted within 1/2 an hour. I have attached some photos for you to use at your convenience if you wish. - Terry Chamney
I just wanted to let you know how good your seat has been for me. I rode what was supposed to be a 6 hour ride in 7.5 hours because i had to stop so much because pain due to my old seat. When i arrived at the Lichfield, IL event -- i got there as you were tearing down. A gentleman with what sounded like an Australian accent stopped tearing down and helped me out and found the last seat you guys had on the truck for a Yamaha VStar 1300. After getting me all setup i left and grabbed a bite to eat. After checking the weather i saw that there was a thunderstorm coming, so i hopped on my bike and started on my 5 hour trek home. Other than stopping for supper and gas i did not have to stop to stretch or anything -- and this was after my initial 7.5 hour painful ride. I was able to beat the storm home by 5 minutes. Thank you all so much for helping me out and for making such a great seat! - Adam Scheblein
I purchased a seat for my Vstar 650 custom on a Saturday, May 18. The promise to ship it out on Monday so I would received it on Thursday. Happened and I was so pleased to have it for my first long trip on the bike. When I opened the box I thought there was no way this little seat was going to be comfortable. Well I was so wrong. 400 miles one way in the rain, wind and cold and my butt never hurt at all. I never went numb. The entire trip was 900 miles and I felt great. I am definitely going to order the back rest. Your seats are the ultimate in wonderful comfort. Thanks for making them. The only regret I have is my husband now knows I can be wrong sometimes. Well at least this time. - Thanks again - Debbie Kostyk
To Ultimate seats: I had been considering for a while trying your seat after hearing so many great reviews by users. Yet I am still a hard sell and not easily sold. I looked at your offering for the Yamaha Roadstar and the drivers, passenger and driver back rest package, but really choked up on the $800+ which is the only thing that held me back. Back in 1978 I had a nasty motorcycle accident which put me off my feet for four years and I didn't start riding again until 30 later 2008, I started small to see if it was something I still wanted to do and when I was sure I planned in sticking with it, I bought myself a better bike a 2003 Roadstar (Silver Edition) with 7100 miles on it, I love this bike and initially I thought the stock seat was good and comfy but I soon found it was only good for about 50 miles for me, due to old injuries I have limited motion in my right knee and ankle and have to lift my entire leg to use the rear pedal, I would succumb tot he numb butt syndrome at about 40 or 50 miles, develop a catch in my right hip making it extremely painful to use the rear brake let alone catch myself securely when I came to a stop. But stubborn as I am I dealt with the pain and discomfort to ride, but I admit probably not as much as I might have because of the discomfort it causes me on a stock seat set up. Even then I was not totally convinced it was all the stock seat as I thought my unique circumstances may be a big part of it, I knew I needed to do something if I wanted to continue the enjoyment of riding, I also continued to hear the rave reviews by other Ultimate seat users, I just didn't have the $800+ to try something based only on other peoples opinions, so recently I bought a complete 3 piece set of Ultimate seats for a Roadstar, in nice shape a little wear that he used for about 15k miles, but bought another bike that Ultimate seats already on it so he sold me his 3 piece set for $390 which I am still going to have trouble paying off currently. I put those Ultimate seats on my bike today and figured I would do a short trail run, I know you all say wait a 1000 miles before determining a solid opinion or something to that effect. ( and yet I know these are used seats ) Let me tell you I rode 52 miles ,enough miles that would have put me in a lot of discomfort previously with my stock seat, I never got the numb butt, never developed the catch in my hip that causes me pain to use the rear brake and when I got home and got off the bike I actually walked away, where normally I would have to stand leaning on my bike for about 5 minutes before I could walk, I will admit I am surprised I never thought a seat could make that much difference, you can be sure you have another one here that will plugging you folks big time. Great seat Ultimate! - Sincerely Daniel Dillon
Three day and ~1450 miles round trip from Massachusetts to DC and back, with a ride out to Skyline Drive thrown in for fun. And my backside and back feel great. When I had the stock saddle on my '06 Yamaha Stratoliner, 300-400 miles would leave me sore. What a difference my Ultimate Seat made - thanks for extending my range by a factor of 10! - Bob Bolandrina
I just wanted to send you a quick note that I received my seat for my Yamaha Vstar 650 Custom. I put it on last weekend and already rode 100 miles on it. It was the best investment I've made for my bike so far. I was really surprised that I barely felt the bumps that usually have me lifting off the seat. I thought because the seat didn't seem as cushy I would feel the bumps more but wow what a difference. First time I've been on the bike more than 45 minutes with no pain in my back or other parts of my body lol. Just wanted to say this is a fantastic product and a real plus that it fits with my stock seat. I never will have a passenger on it so didn't want to spend the extra money. I used the money to buy the backrest. I love that it's adjustable and folds over. Wonderful wonderful wonderful product. Very happy customer here. :-) - Rennee - Connecticut
Hi Des, I received my Lowrider seat yesterday for my Roadliner. It is perfect and the real Ultimate Seat for any motorcycle! It was easy to fit and it took me more time to unwrap the seat from the carton than fitting the seat! Thank you for a great product. I couldn’t wait to take my bike for a ride, and this morning rode into work. What a difference the Ultimate Seat is compared to the stock seat! - Great and fast service. Thanks. - Kind regards - Philip Fourie
Received my V-Star 650 Lowrider seat on Friday. Hubby installed it and we rode 550 miles over the next two days. I love everything about it! The seating position is great, it looks awesome on my bike and most important, the comfort is fantastic!! Difference between my Ultimate LowRider and the stock seat is night and day. - Thank you again! - Ann Allen
Hi Des...just great seats for us...original seats after 100km and my butt like stone but your seats 200-250km nonstopp.Really nice product and also good looking. - Best regards from Finland - Risto Salo
Dear Libby, I just finished a 3000 mile trip on my V-Star 1300 from Idaho through Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. I was unable to try the seat out before leaving so I was concerned about this. And true to your advertising you suggest at least 100 miles before you decide if it works. Well I can tell you that you were spot on. Before I reached Lolo, Montana I knew I had a winner. I'm not sure about the no numb butt claim, but I was very comfortable at the end of 400 mile days in the saddle. Thanks for you help in fast tracking my order and making my trip more enjoyable. - Ron Rose
Ok folks, I have to say that I was a little doubtful about all the claims I read about your seats on your web site, but I bought a seat for my Roadstar Silverado. I put it on yesterday and took a 9 hour ride over the Sierra Nevada Mountains. I have to say there was no discomfort at all! What a great seat. I don't know how you do it but keep it up. I spoke so highly about the new seat that some of my ride buddies may be placing orders soon. I have been riding for over 40 years on all the big brand name seats and was not satisfied with any of them until now. Thx again!
Hi I just wanted to say thanks for the ultimate seat !!!! I have had this on my 2007 1100 silverado since the bike was new and had 1300 miles on the bike and now I have 15,400 miles on the bike and the seats are still great !!!!! - Thanks - You're Great !!!! - Dennis
Super seats , great deal , best investment , no more pain after 180 miles riding on bad quality roads !!!!!!!!!!!! The rider backrest is also doing a great job , is a must in my opinion ! - Thank’s a lot for everything, - Lucian
Hi there, Just wanted to say thanks again for your customer service. We received my seat on Thursday and got it put on the V-Star 650 on Friday night. Unfortunately we had some rain but I did get out on the bike today. Such a difference it makes. I feel like I'm more in control of the bike and it fits my behind perfectly! The stock seat we had I felt like I could put another person behind me and that I was slipping and sliding around on it all the time. Being only 5'2" it seems like everything is made for people bigger than I am. This has made such a great difference and I'm looking forward to getting out and having much more enjoyable rides. I'm enclosing a photo. Thanks again! - Connie
Received our Ultimate seats today, quicker than we expected. Installation was quick and easy. They look and feel great. My wife likes the armrests. - Thanks for a great product. - George & Loretta Wilson
I just want to send out another thank you to the folks at Ultimate for the great saddle on my 07 Midnight Silverado. I am now 3 years in to my ultimate experiance with a saddle that is just as comfortable today as it was after a short breakin. The differance between the Ultimate Saddle and the stock seat is astounding! Thanks again for the great product!!! - Chris Chaney - Hot Springs AR
Once again, hats off to you and your MidRider seat.......just took my first ride and it could not be more comfortable. My Royal Star Tour Deluxe is ready for the road! - J S Gorczynski - Aberdeen NJ
Hi!! I bought my V-Star 650 Ultimate Seat last year and loved it! For Valentine's Day, my husband bought me the matching backrest. What a difference it has made in my riding! I would recommend it to anyone, especially a new female rider. The backrest and seat combo truly make you a part of the bike. I am more confident than ever on the highway and on the twisty turns. Thanks so much for such a wonder product! - Sincerely - Katie Loudermilk
All I can say is WOW what a difference. I’ve been riding for years and currently ride a Pearl White’06 Royal Star Tour Deluxe. I’m 6’2’’ 230 lbs. and with the stock seat was quite content to fuel up after about 250 kms. because that’s about as far as I could stand riding with a numb butt and sore back. I got my 4 piece Ultimate Seat set in July and immediately installed it on my bike (easy, it took less than an hour). The seat sits a bit higher and puts me a bit farther forward so at first I wondered if my long legs would be as comfortable as they were with the stock bike. I decided to go for a short test drive around the block, came back 400 kms later with no numb butt, no sore back and a big ear to ear grin. The seat and the back rest are soooo… comfortable I didn’t want to stop for gas or food or anything I just wanted to ride. After explaining to my wife why I was gone so long I took her for a short ride and when we got back 2 hrs and 150 kms later she knew what I was talking about. WOW, I should have done this years ago and would not hesitate getting another ultimate seat on my next bike. This is by far the best accessory (really an investment) I have ever put on a bike. - Thanks - Earl, Brandon, Mb.Canada
My new V-Star 650 Classic seats arrived on schedule Monday and I immediately left a smoking trail from my office all the way home. The new seats are just perfect!! It took about thirty minutes to install, mainly because I had to remove my hard bags and passenger grab bar. Everything lined up perfectly. Took the bike out for a quick 35 mile jaunt and “tried” to get monkey butt. Just ain’t possible with the new seats. Can’t wait to take them on a real trip!! Thanx again for this product!! - Robert A. Taylor
Hey Ultimate, In June I purchased a custom POW/MIA logo seat for my 2000 vstar classic. The seat arrived and (due to a miscommunication) the logo was grey. I called Ultimate and spoke with Libby - this was Americade weekend. I went to DC for Rolling Thunder, upon return Tuesday I spoke with Libby who received the 'ok' to order me ANOTHER SEAT with white stitching. WHAT TO DO IN THE INTERIM?? "Well, you just keep ridin on the seat until you get the new one and mail it back to us with the shipping label we will email you!!" Wow...needless, to say I tell EVERYONE who comments on what a great looking seat this story. CUSTOMER SERVICE and quality makes a company. Oh yeah...I should mention the stock seat was makin' my body scream. The ULTIMATE SEAT is just that - awesome!! You sit 'in' the seat. I will continue to be a 'pitch man' for ULTIMATE!! - Cass - New York
Hi, just wanted to thank you for a great product........ your seat on my V-Star 1100 has made my bike feel like a new one ,absolute comfort ! and looks great too ...thanks again - Kevin Wyborn - Brandon mb.
Just wanted to give some feedback on the Ultimate Seat I recently purchased for my VStar 650 Custom. I received the seat in good time; installed it in about 15 minutes and then rode down to Victoria and back (470km). It really lived up to the description you give on your website. It really is a pleasure now, taking those long rides. No more numb bum or tingling T’s. Thanks guys, you have a great product - Lew Glentworth - Australia
Des, I have put over 10,000 Km. on the Ultimate seat and it is the only seat that I found comfortable for this aging and arthritic body of mine.It truly does work well !! Your name belongs in the marque lights of the Butt Burners Hall of Fame.Thank you for this wonderful product. - Harry Osachoff/ Trail,B.C.
Hi Des, Today we have our first ride with the ultimate seat,it was great to sit without pain in our ..........where very very very satisfied. and thank you for the rain covers ( great services) When we are in Florida in September we come to visit the shop en say hello. - Greetz - Karin en Hans Geek - Amsterdam
Just wanted to take a moment to let you know that I am very satisfied with my recent purchase of the Ultimate Seat for my Road Star. As others have stated it was a great experience just as soon as I sat on it. I have logged about 1500 miles so far. The wife and I were able to get a 200 mile day in on the back roads yesterday and there were no sore tail issues. - It was a pleasure to do business with Ultimate Seats even though there was one small issue (on my part) with the order. Looking forward to many more happy miles ahead. - Michael May
Hi Des, I just wanted to write you a letter and thanking you for your service, you installed my seat on June 11, 2011 at the Americade in Lake George. It was a rainy day and my daughter was wet and cold. But she was so happy on the way home the next day sitting on our brand new seats. I wish I done this when I first brought the bike in 2005 (Yamaha Royal Star). We like riding and know we love riding these seats are so comfortable and the back rest it adjust so wonderfully. A little story to tell, the guys I work with I told them I was going to the Americade just to buy a seat. Now that they seen the seat they like the pitch of the seat. I offer one the guy’s to sit on it he said no because he just brought a seat from Corbin and he did not want to be disappointed with it. I could see in his face he knew he made a mistake in purchasing his seat. Just like your ad said you don’t sit on these seats you sit in them. Thanks again hope to see you in the upcoming events. - Darrell - Massachusetts.
Hello from the uk! I was fortunate enough to have the winning bid for an Ultimate seat for my Raider last year which you kindly donated to "Roadkill" for the Raider rally in Ashville". After riding across the US from East to West, some 4300 miles, I cannot praise your seats enough, not one numb bum the whole journey. it just adds to the pleasure of riding. - Many thanks - Sally Tackas
Folks: I called and purchased a seat, backrest, passenger seat, and rain covers for my 2004 RoadStar last Thursday. I had them shipped overnight to my friend in Tempe, AZ. I installed the seat Friday evening, and started riding with it on Saturday. Tonight, I am in Burley, ID, and have put just over one thousand miles on the seat (one short day trip and two 400+ days of riding). Quite simply, I love it; I am completely satisfied with the seat and backrest. I experience no pain and drastically reduced fatigue. - Ride safe - James Hanners
Des and all at Ultimate Seats, Thank you, we bought your #2P 12271 - 2 pc. set, Midrider seat & Passenger seat studded back in December, and we finally got to go on our first couple of rides of the new season here in Michigan (45-55 degrees). Before the end of last season, we we put 1,400+ miles on our new 2010 Yamaha V-Star 950T and my backside would be tingling/numb after only a 100+ miles, my Honey would state that the stock passenger pad felt like a brick. Now that we have your products, it is as if we could ride forever. As stated by others, you don't sit on these seats, you sit in them. The difference between stock seats and your seats are as different as night and day. Also the looks are stupendous; we have already had three people ask what kind of seats they are, and comment how they make the bike look so much more custom. Thank you again, we will and have recommended your companies seats to others. - Respectfully - Juice
Hello Des, Just wanted to drop you a note and let you know the wife and I enjoyed the visit to Ultimate last weekend. It was nice to finally get to meet you and put a face with the name! I have to tell you the trip to Daytona was the longest trip I've done since purchasing the Ultimate for my Raider. What a change! I no longer have to take stretch breaks between fuel stops and the wife absolutely loves the passenger seat! She actually enjoys riding with me now! Thanks again for making the Ultimate available for the Raider. I think I have mentioned it to you before that my brother has the Big Boy on his 1800 and that is what originally turned me onto Ultimate. - Jeff Gunnoe
I have a set of Ultimates on my V-star 1100 - LOVE THEM. Rode to Chattanooga last year then rode up the east coast back home to WI. Put on about 3300 miles during the 8 days. NEVER ONCE did I have a sore back, or for that matter have the need to even get off my bike. I will ALWAYS ride Ultimate seats! This year I'll be putting on about 15k miles this year on the new RoadStar bike. Rides will include Sturgis, An "IronButt" ride from Madison, WI to Mitchell, South Dakota and back (in one day) and a Tame Texas ride across the top of the state in one day. I can say that rides like this would simply not be possible without my Ultimate Seat!!! - Thanks - Doug
I had shopped for seats for close to a year and a half. This last 6 months I settled in and researched your product as the most likely candidate for what I wanted. Finally ordered the seats over the phone. No problems with the order. It got here on time, everything looked great, and trust me I looked very close at all the stitching and workmanship. Install was easy and the seats look and feel great! All I could have hoped for and more. My wife likes her seat and the arm rests were a big hit. Spent the last two days riding and am really glad I purchased them. Good job everyone, thank you again. - Russell Nanning
Des, I purchased a Midrider seat for my 2000 RoadStar in December, 2010. I did a lot of research and read many comments in a number of websites. Of course, the only true test is to use any product, so your offer of 14 days of trial was very much welcomed. I wasn't sure if it would work for me as I'm only 5'10" tall, but 320 lbs. and well into my retirement years. I used it for a half dozen 1-200 mile trips and one 7 hour trip with never any discomfort. The next day I switched back to my original stock seat and--zingo!--one hour in and I could feel numbut starting and it never went away as long as I was seated--starting right up shortly after each break. So the next day, I used the Ultimate for the first 2 1/2 hours without leaving the seat for anything, and, guess what, nothing. I mean it's not like the seat feels good, it's like you don't even feel anything. It's like sitting on a cloud. Why don't you change the name to "Cloud Seats"? - Ron Kelley
Dear Ultimate, I wanted to let you know that I did a lot of searching on the internet, from reviews to forums having to do with Ultimate seats vs. the other known brands. Everyone kept recommending the ultimate, and some of them I might add had the other known brands but apparently weren’t happy with them. So I finally purchased the mid rider, and passenger seats for my V-Star 1100 Classic. All I can say is WOW! It feels like I’m sitting in a nice comfortable high end car seat. My wife can’t get over the passenger seat as well, not only is it more comfortable but on turns she feels a lot safer due to the extra width of the seating…I don’t want to elaborate further cause it may get me into trouble with the wifey. Your service was spectacular as well, there was a little mix up in the beginning but you guys handled it very professionally. Being in a customer service oriented market myself I was very impressed and satisfied. - Thank you again - Dwaine Hartman
I wanted to let you know that I recently completed a 7,000 km journey from Ontario to Nova Scotia through New England and back on my 2008 Yamaha Road Star Silverado S. I don't think this trip would have been possible without my new Ultimate seat. I had really strugggled to cope with the stock seat (which my dealer says are made for Yamaha by Corbin!). I tried a succession of remedies such as a sheep skin, a gel pad, and even an Air Hawk. I can now state unequivically that stock seats are at best crappy and at worst seariously damaging to your health. There is probably no more important bike upgrade than a proper seat. Thanks Ultimate - you saved my butt! - Alan Sutherland
Dear folks, I wanted to drop you a note to say how much I have enjoyed my new seat. After a few months on my 06 Roadliner I had to make a change. The stock seat was killing me on even short runs of a few hundred miles. I researched a bunch of seats and choose your Midrider with the drivers backrest. I made the right choice. Great feel, no burning and the adjustable backrest provides excellent support for those long rides. Excellent products and service. Thank you. Ill be back! - Gary
I recently purchased one of your seats for my stratoliner.Mostly because of the 14 day trial,nobody else does that.I've owned two other star bikes and used the competition on them.They were good also but no comparison to the ultimate.Your seat truly does what you claim.when i first got it I went 100 miles, no problem.I just finished a 200 mile plus poker run and again no problem.I'm 56 and was begining to think maybe I was getting to old to do that. Now I'm wondering how far I can go.This seat is amazing.Keep up the good work. - Larry - Ohio
Hello - I had the good fortune to look at the seat you donated for the 2010 Yamaha Raider Rally in Asheville, NC. One of our other members won the bid for it at auction. (Lucky girl!) Anyway, my wife and I rode the Blue Ridge Parkway with our group, all the way to Grandfather Mountain and back to Asheville on Saturday. Our grup leader missed the Asheville exit and we ended up 30 miles off course. My wife was in such pain from the stock seat that she hopped off when we went to the lookout point and she collapsed to the ground crying. She was miserable. On Sunday, we had a 5 hour ride back to Nashville. She was dreading it, and I was very concerned for her. Sally, the club member that won the bid for the Ultimate Raider seat set, offered for us to try the passenger pad on the way to Nashville. I installed it and Kelly (my wife) was able to ride the ENTIRE trip back with not a single issue of butt pain, or back pain. I made Sally an offer for the pad and she accepted. We are now the proud owners of an Ultimate Seats passenger pad! I just wanted you to know that had you not participated as a sponsor for this event, I would have never had the opportunity to have my wife use that seat on the way home. She is so pleased with it, that I am looking forward to purchasing the rider seat as well. You have an excellent product there! I will spread the word... - Best - Gary Ingle, aka RoxieRaider
Just wanted to drop you guys a note to say how awesome your seats are. I had originally put a Corbin on my Yamaha Road Star but had to get rid of it after a year because it just was too hard. I bought one of your seats and immediately was convinced you have the best product on the market. This summer I rode from California to West Virginia and back. 5600 miles total doing on average 450 miles a day. Your seat held up and kept the ride enjoyable. Thanks for making a fantastic product. - Dana
Last night I went for my first run on our Yamaha 2009 V-star Tourer with my new ultimate passenger seat installed – oh my god what a difference – I felt more stable on the bike, no wiggling trying to get comfortable and no numbness – I was totally comfortable. I was really beginning to think we made a mistake buying the bike but thanks to my new Ultimate seat, I can look forward to many enjoyable hours with my husband on our bike. Thanks Ultimate Seats, I will definitely be recommending you! - K. Rendell - Newfoundland, Canada
This is the best seat out there for a roadstar have 24k on it and there is no sign of wear and ready for another good comfortable year. - Gary
Ultimate Seat Co.; I bought a set of your seats for my 2008 Yamaha Roadstar Silverado S shortly after I got it. I now have 23,542 miles on her. I'm 50 years old and I must say, Your seats are great!! I have road several all day trips (sun up to sun down) and when done, I have no aches and pains at all. My wife loves her seat and backrest, said it fits very good and keeps her in place with no slide-up. If I ever get another bike I will put them on it also. You have made a believer out of me and my wife. Keep up the good work. - Jeff Slater - Cabot, Arkansas
I bought a new Yamaha 1300 Tourer about a year ago and did some short rides with some of my friends. One weekend my wife and I were invited to go on a ride to a destination that was 4 hours from our house. With the stock seat we had to get off of the bike and walk around for about 15 minutes after about an hour of riding to rest our butts. By the time we got home that day we were so sore that even the couch hurt to sit on! I asked some friends about different seats and all of them kept telling me to get your Ultimate Seat. I went ahead and purchased them and boy are we ever glad we did! We can now ride for hours with no pain at all. These seats are GREAT!!! I would recommend them to everyone. Not only are they comfortable but they are very easy to install too. Took me about 15 minutes! You really have a great product! Thanks! I just finished a 1000 mile trip with my new Ultimate seats, and all I can say is WOW. I wasn’t even the slightest bit sore. I could have easily rode another 1000 miles. This has been by far the best purchase for my Vstar 1300. My wife is also extremely happy with the wider passenger seat. Our experience with Ultimate has been OUTSTANDING!! Thank you so much for your excellent product! I will be highly recommending this seat to everyone I ride with. - Troy Scott - Spokane Wa.
I have had my Midrider seat for several weeks now. I have put over 1000 miles on my bike with this seat. I love this seat. The day it arrived I put it on my Road Star and rode for over 4 hours with only two quick stops for gas and something to drink. When I got home I got off my bike and it really felt like I had only rode for a short distance. My back did not hurt and my legs were not all numb and shakey. The more I ride, the more I appreciate this seat. It just keeps getting better. I am 6 foot and weigh 250 lbs. Also I'm 53 years old. To ride for hours with no discomfort is great. I have told everyone who will listen about your seats. I should also say that I have owned a Mustang seat and your Ultimate seat is better, hand down. And if there is a trophy for customer care, you should get it. Thanks for making a great product and taking care of your customers. - Jim Pettis - Dublin Georgia
I have had my Ultimate seats for going on three summers. I have put 16,000 miles on the seats on my Roadstar and have never been more satisfied with a product. I have owned Corbin and Mustang seats and they were no where near the comfort of your product(s). I will be traveling to Sturgis this summer and my seats will make the trip as comfortable as always…Thanks you Rock! - Jeff Marmor - Boise Idaho
I received my Stratoliner seats last friday, Wow what a difference! My wife and I rode 200 miles like it was nothing. No sore butts.Outstanding product and craftmanship, fit and finish is perfect. We are really looking forward to a long trip. Thank you for such a great product. - Kevin Smith - Salado Texas.
Des, I was skeptical of all the positive reviews with no negative ones. Not anymore. I'm 56 and interested in comfortable riding. My stock seat was not very comfortable and caused pain after a short time. I tried the beaded seat cover which did absolutely nothing. Then tried the gel pad which was no better than the beads. Then tried the Air Hawk seat cushion which did work fairly well but still had discomfort after about the 1st hour and then about every 45 minutes there after. The discomfort really never went away for very long after the first stop and who wants to ride with that feeling. Yesterday I rode 145 miles to your Ormond Beach location. Took the scenic route so by the time I got there my rear was pretty uncomfortable to begin with. Figured with your 14 day return policy I had nothing to lose. The new seat went on my 07 Roadliner in 20 minutes and away I went. Took another scenic route home and rode for 2 1/2 hours at one stretch without stopping and there was no pain. Not even any discomfort and I was just breaking the seat in. 6 hours and 310 miles later with only 3 short stops (under 5 minutes each) for water, head and gas I arrived home with no rear pain or discomfort. It felt like I could have ridden all day without stopping. Best investment I've made to my bike and can now look forward to much more comfortable riding in the future. Thanks for a great seat! - Dan M. - Brunswick, GA.
Des, Great service, great product!! Thank you for making something to really make me “Part” of the bike. My butt feels great, I don’t slide about, and the family loves the back seat and armrests. Keep up the great work. Attached you will find 2 shots of my bike with all your gear installed, feel free to post in your pics area. - John Hollembeak - St Louis, MO.
Thank you for the prompt delivery of my new roadstar rider seat , only 7 days acsoss Canada , i knew as soon as i sat on it for the first time that you have agreat product. The feel of my new riding position feels like i'm part of my bike not just along for the ride. This it what riding is suppose to feel like! When we stop for a ferry or for a roadside break i don't get off the bike it's that great. I liked my roadstar before but now i love it!! best regards. - Ken Mason - Maple Ridge B. C.
Purchased the seat approximately three weeks ago, via phone, and was promised an approximate 3 week delivery date. Received it last Wednesday within the time frame promised. The written enclosed installation instructions, with pictures, made the task of switching out the stock seat for the Ultimate seat fairly simple. Road on it over the weekend for about 240 miles. The seat was as advertised fitting my butt like a cozy fits a beer can. At no time during the trip did my rear come off the bike feeling sore. Once again, Thanks!! - Ray Alamo
Hi Des, I ride a 2006 Stratoliner and after a few hours in the saddle, I was in pain. I put up with the stock seat for a couple of seasons and finally looked everywhere for a new seat. My final decision was an Ultimate seat that I put on just before a week long trip to the east coast. I have never been happier! I rode 5000 Kms in one week and never had a problem. Thank you for the seat that made my trip! Try and market this seat more in Canada...it's the greatest!!! - Steve Gibson
This is the first tine I have owned seats this comfortable and good looking. The stock seats on my Stratoliner were about enough to want me to sell the bike. After installing your seats I now think the gas tank is too small. These are hands down the best seats on the market. On top of this your staff is great. They went out of there way to make sure I got what I needed. As I am 6’ 7” tall most seats push me to far forward but not yours. Thanks to you and your staff. - Dave Kenney - Littlestown PA
Hello,I purchased my Ultimate seat for my Yamaha Road Star only one week ago, and having travelled all over north america, on my bike over the years, I must say my Butt has died and gone to heaven. This seat is amazing, it is so comfortable, and seats you in the right position especially with the drivers backrest added, my daughter loves the passenger seat also and now wants to ride with the group we ride with on the back with me. Thanks to all at Ultimate seats - Mike and Kim Green - Burlington, Ontario
I just received my Yamaha 1300 leather seat yesterday, installed it in 30 seconds and took it for a ride today. Wow. Thank you! It's incredibly comfortable and fits me a lot better than the stock seat. I feel like I'm part of the bike. No sliding around and the width in the front of the seat allows me more leg room at the stops. Very comfortable. I'm happy I selected your company and thank you for providing me with a quality product. - David J. Henri, P.E.
Hi. I purchased my Ultimate seat two weeks ago and have put on approximately 300 miles. The difference in comfort compared to my stock seat is like day and night. My Yamaha Roadliner is now complete. I have power and extreme comfort for short or long trips. I don't understand why the manufacturers sell the bike with such plain stock seats. Its like selling a stereo with one speaker. Thank you Ultimate for a great product. - Dan Georges - Bethlehem, PA.
Hello Dear Ultimate Seat, My name is Claude Blair, I ride a 2005 Yamaha Roadstar and the seats that came with the bike where awful after doing some intensive research, I decided to purchased a 4 piece set from Ultimate Seat. Put the seat on in less then 15 minutes and drove 1000 clicks over the weekend with my girlfriend. This seat is awesome very comfortable natural seating for both driver and passenger. I would recommend this seat to all. The only thing is the backrest position is a little to close for me (6'2 240 lbs) so I will order the offset bracket that is not on the web site and also order the rain covers. Thanks a million for the great work Ultimate. - Yours Truly Claude
I want to thank everyone at Ultimate seats for 1st class sales, service and product. Your company was great in answering questions on the phone, at the Leasburg Bike Show when I went to check out your product. The seats were delivered fast and were a breeze to install. I put the seats through the hardest break in possible. I rode from GulfPort MS to San Diego CA a total of 4400 miles in all kinds of climate and traffic conditions. I rode 675 miles the 1 st day going and 745 miles the 1st day coming back. I could not have done 500 on stock Road Star seat. The back rest gives you great support and comfort and the seat is cooler in desert riding because there is no Plastic Liner. I Love your product and having Eagle Emblems on both Back Rests got rave reviews each time I stopped. Thanks to everyone and best of luck in the future. I will never own another motorcycle with out your product!!!
If anyone has suffered from "NUMB BUTT" after a long ride. Please be assured with these seats you can keep going if you want after everyone else has stopped. My seats and seat backs installed in less than 15 min . Ride position improved dramatically and the feeling of being connected with the bike was noticeable on the first turn out of my driveway . Quality , Comfort and GREAT LOOKS . The style and stitching are second to none . Safe Riding to ALL - Joe Seymour
I received my new seat yesterday and installed in last night - IT LOOKS BEAUTIFUL!!! I road my Road Star to work today - this is a first!! The ride was sooooo much better with your seat installed. I do not understand why the motorcycle manufacturers do not install your type of seats during initial production. Thanks again for making my day!! Sincerely - Robert A. Heber
Des, just wanted to let you know how pleased i am with my ultimate seat and backrest i recently bought from you before my trip to st.louis from b'ham,al.it performed wonderfully for the whole 1200 miles of my trip. my butt never fell asleep or went numb at all like it did with my stock yamaha stratoliner seat.i wish i had got it alot sooner.alot of stratoliner riders on delphi forums recommeded your seat as will i when someone wants to know what brand of seat is the best.i am about to call and order the rain cover for my seat so it will stay dry when riding in the rain.anyway,i thought i would just let you know how satisfied i was with your product. have a great day, - mike weber!
I just received my Ultimate Seats with backrests for my Vstar 1100 and installed them in about 7 minutes. I am 6’3” and roughly 250 lbs. After a nice 60 mile round trip, I have to report the seats are excellent and a huge improvement over stock. The price is well worth the cComfort gains realized with your seats. I feel like I’m riding on a lazyboy recliner. Steven Richart - Florida
The seats just arrived at my house today. They look great on the bike and are just as comfortable as your ad say's.I will send a picture of my trike as soon as possible. I have a 2006 Stratoliner converted into a trike .It has a fully independent corvette style rearend with hand made fenders to match the factory fender in the middle. All done in a dark cherry color.It also has 20" corvette style Wheels and low profile tires. Thanks again and the service was above what I expected. Thank You - Kevin K Claypool
I cannot believe it took me so long to put this seat on my bike. So far I have put a 200 mile run on this seat which I would have never done on any other seat .I tip my hat to the folks at Ultimate Seats. You sure have figured it out . Thanks - Rick Rohme
Hallo Des, I sent you some pictures from my bike with the new Ultimate Seats, and you are right there is no more pain in my butt whem i am driving my bike. Thanks fore the magnificent ultimateseats, and for the sending overseas. Greetings, and thanks - Jan van Haren
DES: I ORDERED MY SEAT IN JULY IN TIME FOR A 1000 MILE TRIP. IT IS UNDOUDTEDLY ONE OF THE BEST INVESTMENTS I MADE SINCE I BOUGHT MY VSTAR 4 YEARS AGO. THE STOCK SEAT WAS REPLACED WITHIN 30 DAYS BECAUSE IT JUST PLAIN HURT TO RIDE. I RODE ONE OF THE COMPETIONS SEATS FOR 2 1/2 YEARS UNTIL I JUST COULDN'T STAND IT ANYMORE. I WAS AT THE POINT THAT IF I COULDN'T DO ANYTHING ABOUT THE SEAT I WOULD HAVE QUIT RIDING. YOUR SEAT SAVED MY RIDING PLEASURE. I CAN NOW RIDE ALL DAY WITH NO DISCOMFORT AND ONLY NEED TO STOP FOR FUEL FOR ME OR THE BIKE, OR UNTIL MY RIDING COMPANIONS CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. GREAT SEAT! I RECOMMEND THE ULTIMATE SEAT TO ANYONE WHO WANTS THE VERY BEST. - STANLEY STATEN - ROANOKE, VA.
Just finished a 300 mile ride with your seats and my wifes toush and mine were feelin good. You sure picked the right name for the seats, and the pow logo was a hit with many. A royal star rider with us may be visiting your site for seats after he got my response, Thank You - Jim Hayman.
Hello , Just back from a extended ride from Washington D.C. to St petersburg Florida , Both my riding partner & I have your seats on our Yamaha Stratoliners . We had to make some adjustments on our bikes during the trip , handlebars & tire pressure . But the biggest thing we didn't notice was our back sides , extreme heat or cool & rain nothing but comfort ... Thank You for a Most Excellent Product . I recommend them to anyone who asks , would I buy it again ? absolutely ! Will I have your seat on another bike ? You bet your bippy ! - Thank You again - Walt Packala
Dear Ultimate Seats, I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for making such a fine product. I recently went on the longest motorcycle trip of my life over the course of three days. It was the America's 911 Foundation Ride. http://www.americas911foundation.org/ - Thanks again - Billy Lon.
Hi, I purchased the 4 piece set plus the rain covers and rider backrest bag for my 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner. It is sooooooo comfortable. I can't say enough how happy I am with your product. Thank you very much. - Jon Watson.
I just wanted to thank you for making such a great seat. I have had four seats on my Roadstar and this one is by far the best. When you guys sent it to me I put it on and went on a overnight ride (600 miles) and it was like riding on my recliner, I love it. My wife will be calling you to order the backrest for the passenger (my birthday present) I want it to match the riders backrest. I went on a ride last weekend with 100 other bikes and I think you will be getting some calls. Here are some pictures of it on my bike. Thanks - Darwin.
Des: I'm sure Sturgis was profitable and I must tell you about your product. I have a 2007 Stratoliner, live in Calgary, Alberta. Sturgis is exactly 1965kms from Calgary. My girlfriend and I road down in two days. We both had pretty sour rears the end of the 2nd day. There is no question, saddle discomfort will effect your performance riding ability and longevity in the saddle. Our 3rd morning 8:00 a.m to Sturgis the next day I passed your booth and in 2 minutes had your seat on. The only complaint I have with my Stratoliner is the bike is promoted a cruiser-tour, they gave little attention to seat design and comfort. My girlfriend and I toured Sturgis area and surroundings over the next few days adapting to your seat. The true test of your product came two days after departing Sturgis for home. 675miles in the saddle - 19 hours!!!! Due to the forest fires, etc. as a result absolutely no hotel vacancy untill I reached my home city limits. If I had the stock seat, we would never had been able to do the almost Iron-Butt run, which I have done on my Road Star in the past. My girlfriend was a little sour, but I was fine which provided me the opportunity to ride safely and not get fatiqued. Not only does your product perform, it also enhances the tour image of the Stratoliner. Good Job, Great product and thanks for your courteous/knowledgable staff. I'll be referring Ultimate lots!!!!!! - Regards - Robert W. Code, B. Comm.,
My stock seat used to give me accelerating numb butt. What I mean is that on a long day of riding, at the beginning of the day it would take two hours of riding for my butt to get numb. After refueling and getting blood back into my butt it would only take an hour, then it would only take 30 minutes, then 15 and by the end of the day, just looking at my seat made my butt numb. Now that I have the ultimate seat this no longer happens. What a relief. The first day I had it, I took it out and rode one tankfull... about 150 miles, and no numb butt. But that test ride was too short, so last weekend I took it out for a ride around Washington state, with junkets into north eastern Oregon and south western Idaho. I rode all day Friday , Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Covered about 1200 miles... mostly high speed twisties listed in the Destination Highways books and NO Numb Butt. Not even a twitch. This truly is the ultimate seat and to top it off, it is at an ultimate price. This seat is great. No other way to describe it. And it looks good. Its worth the money. Its worth more money than they charge you for it (but don't raise the price or change the seat). Buy one, and while you are at it, get one for your old lady; she'll love you for it. (girl friend, wife... I have no idea what the PC term is... ) Next is an Iron Butt ride. I know I couldn't have done it on my stock seat, but I'm confident that I can do 1000 miles in 24 hours with the Ultimate seat. In fact, I think I can do more. What a relief. - doc
I received my new Ultimate seat today, and had the stock seat on and this new seat in place within 15 minutes, and took it for a ride........... What a difference! Instead of sliding towards the tank, I sat nice and low, "IN" the seat just as your advertisement said I would, with no forward sliding at all. Unlike the Mustang seats which I had used before, I didn't feel pushed towards the tank at all either. What a joy to ride comfortably! With a little adjusting at the stop lights, I found the perfect position for the back rest, and all I can add is that I will never, ever ride another bike of mine without an Ultimate on it. PERIOD. - JOHN GORCZYNSKI - MATAWAN, NJ
I received my seat set today and I would just like to thank you for a wonderful job. It took only minutes to install them and they are just what I ordered. A quick adjustment of the drivers backrest and I was off and running. The short trip I made with them just proved to me the money was well spent. I now don't have to strech to reach my bars and highway pegs and feel I am in the bike rather than on it. I also feel more in control of the bike over the way it felt before. You really make an awesome seat set. Thanks again here is a site with pictures of the seats on the bike. Fell free to use any of them if you wish. - Sincerly - Curtis Switzer - The Colony, TX
Des, Still can't believe how comfortable these seats are. Have one on a VStar and I don't realize I'm even sitting on one. Made a 300 mile trip and had no discomfort at all. Really a wonderful seat. Thanks again for a wonderful product. - David Cordell - Paragould, Arkansas
I need to write this to tell you how much I love my new Ultimate seat. I am 5'8" and weigh about 165# and I do not have much cushion in the buns area. I have a 2006 Yamaha Stratoliner S. It is all silver and you may remember me from Lake George Americade. After installing my new seat we left my bike sitting in front of your tent for everyone to see. I have a son in the Army in Ft. Rucker, Alabama. He came home for leave and for the return trip he trailered my bike and I drove back with him to Alabama from Ticonderoga, NY. Upon arriving at Ft. Rucker we unloaded my bike and I drove it 200miles to Fort Walton Beach, Fla. to visit some friends. July 5th I started my 2000 mile trek home. The first day I rode for 11 hours on my new seat. I went from Fort Walton Beach, Fla. and drove the entire panhandle coastline over to Tallahassee and continued across into Jacksonville. From Jacksonville headed north and continued into Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. I spent the night in Myrtle Beach. Amazingly, after riding for 11+ hours, I had absolutely NO DISCOMFORT. My butt did not ache of ever get numb. July 6th I rode from Myrtle Beach all the way up into Ocean City, Maryland. Again, another 11+ hour day and again....another day with no discomfort. July 7th I got a late start and traveled from Ocean City into Rhinebeck, NY where I spent the nite visiting friends I have there. This was an 8 hour day and the same results. Nothing but comfort. July 8th I returned home traveling the last 3 1/2 hours north from Rhinebeck and I must tell everyone that I had the best ride ever. After this 2000 mile trek from Alabama to Florida and back north to NY it was a heavenly ride. I have never had a seat that was so comfortable that I did not have at least some saddle-ache. The driver back rest hugged the small of my back while the saddle embraced my buns like they were being held in the palms of angels. I know some of you skeptics out there are thinking "This guy is crazy" , or that I must be exaggerating greatly the levels of comfort that I am explaining. I swear I am not either. Ok...maybe a little crazy for making this trek by myself....but not crazy for my explanations of comfort. I had many comments from other bikers and enthusiasts of how great my bike looked or how nice the seat felt. I raved about this seat to everyone that wanted to listen and gave out your web address to many bikers who sat on this seat and said they had to have one of their own. We never exchanged names or contact info I just told them to get online and get this seat. I hope it turns into some business for you. I couldn't thank you enough for saving my buns and back and giving me the ride I have always craved. Thanks again...- Steve P. - Ticonderoga, NY
This is the best seat ever! I went on a 400 mile ride before I got this, and now I wish I could turn back time.. - Larry Goven
Des, I got my seat yesterday and noticed a big difference within a mile. I have back problems and when I would get off my stock seat I was nearly doubled up from pain. With this new seat for my V Star 1100 I was amazed by the comfort I experienced. I look forward to having a long ride. Everyone was amazed at how nice the seat looked. Most thought it was leather. I have been giving your address to different people because they want one. I have noticed that the vibration from the engine is no longer felt through the seat. What a seat. Couldn't be happier. - David Cordell - Paragould, Arkansas
I couldn't be happier that I bought your seats. I don't have back problems, but I don't like to get saddle butt after a long ride. I was apprehensive about shelling out that much money for a product I'd never even seen or sat in. But I really am impressed! Everyone says it, but it's true, you do sit "in" not "on" these seats. I'm a shorter rider, which can make it tough to feel in control of my bike. With these seats I feel like I'm in total command! I'm comfortable on a long ride, in control the entire time and smiling the whole way. That's why I bought my bike in the first place. Thanks for making my road experiences even better! - Rachel Petrinovichy
I have to tell you I was very surprised. I have lower three vertebra fused with steel rods. Add to that two years ago I broke my tail bone in two places...I had taken my stock seat on my Road Star and added 1" of gel and 1" of memory foam..Still no help. I received your seat on Friday and since then I have put 700 miles on it...I could never have done this with my fabricated seat....What a great product! - Thank you...It feels like a different bike! - Jody
Dear Des, Last year I purchased a new 2006 Roadstar Midnight Silverado. I am a disabled veteran with severe stomach injuries. Needless to say the stock seats are extremely painful, a upholstery shop modified the seats for me, didn't help much. I purchased a gel seat, that didn't work at all. A Mustang and a Corbin seat failed as well. So after desperately searching the internet I found the ultimate star seats. I now have several hundreds of miles on this seat, I can honestly say I never felt this comfortable before on a bike. The seat actually works. - Thank you - Fred - Mt. Ida, Arkansas
Just wanted to comment on the Ultimate Seats i purchased for my Yamaha Stratoliner recently.The two-tone seats that came with the bike looked great, but they didn't solve the numb behind my wife and i got whenever we put on a few miles. Being a bit skeptical at first, i purchased the 3-pc.set for the bike.Since receiving and installing these seats, i have been truly impressed with the looks, the fit, and especially the comfort of this seat. Your seat has taken comfort to a level that makes longer trips enjoyable again !! Thanks for a great product. - Wayne Brower - Zeeland Mi.
Picked up my seat at your shop on Saturday March 17. Installed in 10 minutes. Got to ride on it for the first time on Friday. Just a note to let you know how pleased I am with this seat. I feel like I am anchored to the bike. Mush more comfortable than stock. I would recommend your products to anyone!! - Robin J. Ramage
Hey there, Just wanted to report that your seats are the ultimate! I installed the new rider and passenger seats on my 2003 Yamaha Roadstar in just a few minutes. And that is saying something as I am about as mechanically minded as your average tree stump. The first weekend I had the seats on I rode just over 900 miles and what a relief from that stiff stock saddle! My butt truly felt like it was in heaven! Thanks for a great product! - George - Ventura, CA
Howdy and greetings from Huntsville, Texas. I received my Ultimate Seat with driver’s backrest this week. I installed these on my 2007 Yamaha 1100 Silverado Classic and truthfully, the seat is exactly as the advertisements state. Having a comfortable seat has been amazingly perplexing for me. I tried a competing product for a few months, and though better than the Yamaha seat, I still had a lot of discomfort. This has really been puzzling to me. I mean, why are motorcycle seats uncomfortable? I think it is because one cannot easily move about, adjusting position during a ride. My Ultimate Seat reminds me of my office chair and it doesn't’t grab the seat cloth as other motorcycle seats appear to. It is easy to move about as one naturally needs to shift position. Installation was quick and simple. After adjusting the angle of the backrest, all was great. Immediately, I found myself in a more natural position on my motorcycle, my wrists were no longer strained since I was leaning back a bit further, and my legs were no longer bunched up (I’m a big guy). Indeed, I had ordered foot controller extensions so I could stretch my legs a bit more and I really don’t need them---I should have waited! Definitely a quality product with immediate comfort. Admittedly, this was an expensive investment, but comfort and quality are important for me. I appreciate this product. --Larry.
Des, I've received my Ultimate seats for my Roadliner and I am so happy I don't know how to thank you enough for making such a quality product. Being in Australia and ordering these from you in Canada was a bit of a leap of faith for me but they arrived without problem and in perfect condition. If you ever have any customers in Sydney, Australia that want to see your seats before ordering please feel free to give them my email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'd be more than happy to show off your top quality product. I'd be interested to see any pictures of the Harley ones you are doing as I have a few friends that are very interested and love the comfort of my seat. Chris
Des, I recently ordered a set of seats for my Stratoliner about a month ago. I must say, everyone else could take a lesson or two from Ultimate on how to design a seat. I was hesitant at first, but actually sitting on the seat for three hours was all I needed. Our ride took the wife and I from Crestview, Florida to Biloxi, Mississippi, about three hours. To my amazement, when we got there I could still walk without pain. The four piece seat is an absolute must have. The drivers backrest was a fantastic addition. It resolved back pain which Mustang failed to do. The wife and I both loved the additional padding which Ultimate utilizes in the construction of the seats. Overall, the seats are fantastic and definitely put the comfort back into riding. On a performance note, you do actually sit in the seat versus on top. Overall, a fantastic product. Thanks! Thomas Gurno - Crestview, FLC
Des, The ride last weekend up to the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina was everything we could have asked for, lots of color on the trees, lots of friends to share the ride with and a WONDERFUL SADDLE on the bike. The Ultimate Seat fits me, my wife and the Royal Star Tour Deluxe very well. We were on the ride from 7:45 A.M. until 6:10 P.M. and not a saddle sore was to be found. It is a definite keeper. You guys really did a good job! Thanks - David M. Kramer - Greer, SC
I bought my Royalstar TD seat from you at the Daytona BiketoberFest last weekend. My butt was quite sore from my ride from St. Pete FL all the way to Daytona. On my way home my butt was still sore when I sat on the Ultimate for the first time. The ride home was hot (temperature was 91) and I also got stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic 4 times for an additional hour or more in the saddle. I decided to ride to work on Tuesday of this week and made an additional side-trip that added another 70 miles or so on my ride home (200+ miles round-trip). All I can say is "my butt is smiling now!" Had I known, I would have gotten an Ultimate Seat 2 years ago. Two weeks ago at Sebring I had a "buttbuffer" installed into my stock seat and it was a total waste of money. Thanks for making my butt "smile" - I can't wait to take the long rides I have been longing to take but knew I couldn't handle because of the discomfort. Michael M - St. Petersburg, FL
Your instructions indicate that I should ride 100 miles to find out how it feels. it is fantastic right out of the box. Why wait for 100 miles ?Thanks for a great product - Steve Altman - Norwalk, Connecticut
Des, I have received the seats and installed them on my Yamaha XV 1600 Wildstar, everything fits great and I love the seat. I am 6 Ft 4 and always had back problems. With the new seat plus backrest my back problems are history. It took UPS 5 days to deliver the seats to me in Holland. Thanks again for the great service and fantastic seats, I can recommend them to anyone who owns a Wildstar (or roadstar). - Best regards - Jaap Riemens - The Netherlands
Got my RoadStar Ultimate seat months ago and the difference is amazing - I can ride all day and never notice any discomfort - would not have believed it if I hadn't bought it. Thanks for helping me enjoy my ride - Lee Lease - Bellingham, Wa
Des, Wanted to thank you for the seat for my Roadstar. You got the seat built and shipped even earlier than promised so I got it a day earlier than expected. I am VERY impressed with both the quality and the looks. It fit and locked in even easier than the stocker. The embroidery I asked for is excellent. The comfort is outstanding compared to the stock seat. I took a 150 mi ride as soon as I got it and while it took a bit to get used to the change in seating posture, I soon settled in and enjoyed it immensely. No more tailbone numbness. Looking forward to a ride up to Yellowstone later this month on my Ultimate. I'm visiting a friend in Houston in October who also rides a Roadstar and I'm taking the seat so he can try it out. I'm quite sure he'll become a customer before long! - Thanks and best regards - Shelten R. Durfee - Salt Lake City, UT
Hi Des, I have to tell you how much I like my seats! You said somewhere to ride for 300 miles before you really can feel the difference. I now have 4000 miles already this year on these seats and they are amazing. The right compromise between firmness and comfort for my 245lb frame. My last trip was 420 mountain miles in one day and my butt and back were both not tired while my buddies were very sore. One thing that surprised me right away was the difference in control over the bike. On the stock seat I slid around and was riding on the seat herding the bike around. With your seats, I sit IN the seat and gain a large measure of control. It is hard to explain, but it seems like I can just twitch my butt and the bike follows! Best thing I have done for my bike - Thanks - Roy Grimm - Idaho USA
Got the seats thats for the express shipping. The seat was worth the wait, did 600 miles in two day with no butt aches. Had to cut the trip short had some transmission issues, but your seats held up strong!!! - Greg Jackson - Enola, Pa.
OMG!! Just wanted to take a minute to let you know that I have installed the new seats and backrest..... And it it freakin' awesome!
I did not take it on a test ride yet as it's only 26 degrees with the sun out!! But just sitting on it in my garage
, it feels extrem
