Reach Solo Seat is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me but quality product I'm at the tall end for needing a reach seat and am a little bit thick. This seat did not work for me, it moved me too far forward and almost onto the gas tank. Essentially I was sitting on the frame tubes for the spine of the frame negating much of the intended lowering effect. It is a quality product and if I were built different I would likely still have it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 5'4", 125lb, and can back up with ease!! I ride a 2015 Road Glide Special. I had a Slammer kit installed in my 2011 model, but I wasn't interested in bottoming out over speed bumps this time around. I switched up to the Solo Reach Seat and shortened the shocks and I now flat-foot my baby and confidently back her down the incline of my driveway. I rode DC-AZ in comfort. I love this seat!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work for me I'm 5'5", I ride a Street Glide, even though I am almost flat-footed on the ground I was looking for a seat that would put me even closer to the ground for more stability in stops, etc. as well as closer to the handlebar. Well, it did put me closer to the handlebar but the seat is so bulky and wide that I almost couldn't touch the ground, and my thighs were almost over the tank. Didn't work for me. Plus, the seat it too bulky, quite ugly. Solution was: Changed to a low-profile seat. Also changed handlebars to reach handlebars.

Will this reach solo seat work with the detachable tour pac mounting rack

Im 5'7" so height is not a problem. Im trying to get a little closer to my hand controls as is a can only lean back on my current back rest if i release one hand and lean back. Without changing my handle bars. Seat comfort is of importance also, I'd like to convert my two up seat to a solo with solo king tour pac kit not chopped. Thank you in advance for any ideas you may have
