I do love my Mustang Regal Wide seat.

Saddleman is the only maker currently producing new seats for our bikes, but you'll have to buy them direct from Saddleman. I believe the price tag was round 350, which is what a used Mustang will cost.

Welcome! Keep your eyes on ebay or the sale n swap for an extended backrest.
