Hammock Rider Touring Seat is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Fair Seat at best I must admit that my wife likes the seat. However, I like the stock seat better. I am 6'2 and this seat moves me much closer which makes the ride more uncomfortable. My butt becomes numb after riding for about an hour. When riding by myself I put the stock seat on. Not sure how it would be for a shorter rider, but take my word for it, taller riders stay away from this seat. Worst investment I have ever made on my bike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ride all day! Since installing it on my '11 Ultra Ltd, then moving it to my '14, I have put over 30,000 miles on mine. Longest day was 623 miles - piece of cake! Also ran Black Hills to Mpls in 1 day. Perfectly comfortable, love the seat. Do yourself a favor and buy the ventilated pad too - best 100.00 I ever spent at a Harley dealer!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Slippery seat and too wide I have had this seat for two seasons on my 08 Ultra. It is a very comfortable seat for the long days, but suffers from two issues on my bike. I weigh 270 and with my weight on the bike seat it collapses too much and rubs the front inside edge of the saddlebags. Since I have a custom paint, the seat rubbing through my paint was a painful process. Additionally, while using a rider's backrest, the seat is too smooth and my wife slides into the backrest while braking...EVERY time. So I either ride without the rest or without the wife. I prefer riding with the wife.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hammock disappointment I am looking for a saddle I can ride on for a day. The Hammock is not it. 2 hours maximum. On a good day. For all the hype it should be a day long seat.

is the 2008 touring hammock seat a rider / passenger seat?

It's labeled as a "rider" seat but the pic shows a 2-up seat
Asked by: awakepatriot

Will this seat fit my 07 Screaming Eagle Ultra Classic?

Asked by: Eddacat
Hi Eddacat, Unfortunately, this seat does not fit your 2007 Ultra Classic. This seat was made for '08 Touring models equipped with Tour-Pak® luggage. Thank you for your submission.

Will the driver Back rest work with this seat?

Asked by: Hinerj
The 53051-09 won't work with a rider's backrest but the Harley Hammock Rider and Passenger Touring Seat will. What's "cool" about this seat is that you have the option getting it with or without heat.
