Great seat if you are tall
I am 6 ft and my 2010 XL 883 L was just too cramped with mid controls and I did not want forward controls. This seat solved my problem. Bike fits just right now.

Negatively Effects Riding Position
I am 6'2" and was looking for a seat to give me a little more leg room on the 1200C. This seat does accommodate my height however it negatively effects the dynamics of the bike. Instead of sitting in the bike it puts you on top of the bike which makes handling much less direct.
Seat would be better if it put you a little further back without the height being so drastically changed. As you are sitting much higher you are also subject to much greater wind pressure.
Riding with this seat feels like you are doing so from a passenger pillion. Puts you way too far back and high on the bike. Handle bar reach is also much greater which makes locked turns near impossible.
If anyone knows of a solo seat with slightly more room than the stock seat with the same riding position let me know.

Don't think it quite fits the Roadster...
I bought this for my 2016 Roadster. I installed it as per directions making sure the center post and everything else were lined up. the seat had a gap between the tank it and the tank. No big deal, but it wasn't shown in pictures. After riding around for awhile, something didn't feel right, so I removed the seat and found the plastic pan had cracked in 2-3 places. What looked like a part number on the pan, did not match the number on the box it came in. Wrong part? Don't know. I returned it to my dealer for a refund, and will wait awhile for Harley to double check what parts will fit the new Roadster model, before buying anymore.
