Disappointed and frustrated
Please keep in mind this review comes after one 2-hour ride. I have been riding with the stock seat on my ‘07 1200 custom since I bought it new and my passenger (girlfriend) has been asking for a seat upgrade, as the passenger pad is too small for longer rides. Installing was easy, just needed to remove the sissy-bar pad. The fit was slightly loose, like other have commented here.
While my passenger loved the extra padding and a wider seat, I found my seat massively uncomfortable. I thought I would be sitting on a cloud, but it felt more like riding a fence post. Putting it as delicately as possible, contact points shifted from my hind quarters with the stock seat, to my undercarriage with the sundowner seat. I was sliding more into the tank, and had more pressure on my feet and hands.
While I am not sure if I will try to return the seat, I can guarantee I will be putting my stock seat back on this weekend for a solo ride. Maybe I just need to break it in?

Big nice upgrade from stock.
A friend of mine had this on his ‘09 Street Glide and swore by it. I’ve always had aftermarket seats from major brands on my other bikes. After buying a brand new bike a few weeks ago and riding around a few hundred miles, I finally decided after reading reviews to bite the bullet and buy it. I’m so glad I did! Very comfortable seat upgrade from the stock seat on my 2017 Street Glide special. Everyone said it would change the rider position and they were right. It moves you slightly forward maybe a half inch and raises you about an inch. It’s noticeable when you first sit on it but after 10 miles I was very comfortable with it. My wife is very pleased how comfortable the passenger seat it. Bottom line if you are doing casual riding with a long ride every now and then, or if you’re doing hundreds of miles a day, you can’t go wrong with the Sundowner. Definitely makes longer rides manageable.

Sundowner is a great seat... 2009 XL1200C
The seat works and feels great.... One slight modification to the front lug if the seat is to loose. 1/4" self adhesive felt pad cut to fit the top and bottom of the front lug, reinstall seat and most of the play is gone, also seats locks just fine. Well worth the money for sure. Looks great on my bike as well.

Comfortable over stock seat
I purchased this seat for my 1200C for the longer in the saddle days, it was night and day over the stock saddle for longer rides & added a little height. One great thing is that in a few seconds you can throw on the stock seat for the local rides. But the Sundowner seat is made so nice and can get you miles on a Sporty with so much more comfort.
