Signature Series Rider Seat with Backrest is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great seat It changed my whole riding experience with the deluxe, being 5'8" it dropped me down an inch, (feet flat on the ground) and allowed me to sit more center on the bike-which seemed a lot more fun to ride! For my wife she always called the Softail a lie-should have been a hardtail the way it threw her around on the back....Until I bought this seat and then she enjoyed the ride a lot better! Looks, great, improves the ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great seat all around I first purchased this seat because of the backrest, and chose this specific seat because of the deluxe pattern for my softail deluxe. First off it is a very comfortable seat and the back rest is a great feature. Even without the backrest it creates a deep bucket that allows you to sit back onto your motorcycle. Now i can roll on the throttle harder and it wont try to throw me backwards on the seat. Also Allows you to retain the factory rack which is good too. It also reduced the distance to the ground for me, before i was just able to plant both feet on the ground and now i can do it easily and comfortably which is great. I definitely recommend this seat (or any signature series for that matter).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best thing is the backrest. I purchased this seat to replace the stock seat on my Softail Deluxe. The backrest is great but the seat tapers too quickly and is not as comfortable on long rides as it could be. I would probably not purchased this seat if it did not have the the backrest. I will continue to look for a more comfortable seat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great back support I realy like this seat on my Deluxe. It makes those long rides a lot more comfortable on my back. I would rate it a 5 if it was wider in the front. I would lke to have the Sundowner seat with the backrest. I would also like to have it in leather.

Does this seat allow me to keep the stock luggage rack on my 2008 deluxe, or do I need to remove the luggage rack?
