Tallboy Seat is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Perfect Seat!! This is the perfect seat for me. I'm 5'11", 33" inseam. The stock seat on my '17 Road King sat me way forward to where my feet felt tucked under my knees like my old sport touring bike. So I tried several seats at the dealer to no avail. Even the Hammock seat, which is supposed to be really good, still did not sit me back enough AND it raised me up to where I was on my toes. Tried the Tallboy and got perfection!! The bonus was the passenger seat being larger which my wife & kids love. My daughter has almost fallen asleep twice because of it, LOL!! The only negative I have is it took about 1,000 miles to break in. After that, it was fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tallboy seat Just purchased a Tallboy seat for my 2017 Road Glide Ultra, was riding the tank and could not extend my arms without leaning back, it fixed both my problems and my feet fit better on the floorboards also which is an added bonus! Haven't took a long ride yet but so far so good! It also seems to set me down a little bit. I'm 5'11 1/2" tall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well played I love this seat. I had bought a 600$ lepara outlaw and when i went on my first ride it was horrible and on the ride a guy next to me had this seat and he let me sit on it and man what a difference and it was from harley and it was cheaper and better built who would have knew i could afford a piece for my bike without pawning my first born. Good job harley.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall Boy Seat I was a little skeptical about paying out this money for a seat, but my wife convinced me to try it.. WOW what a difference, i'm 6ft 4 and it makes the whole ride so much more comfortable..just did 100 miles on it today to break it in, and can't believe how much a difference it makes

How do you adjust a backrest with a Tallboy seat?

The problem is that even with the bracket in the rearmost position, the backrest still protrudes forward from the rear pillion. Any ideas or accessories to move it back?
Asked by: Joefish

Is there a Matching back rest for this specific model.

there are 2 different leather patterns on this seat and wondered if there is a matching back rest.
Asked by: RobertDurden

Looking for tallboy seat that will move me back about 3 in.

Needs to fit on 2016 Road King with Tour Pak. I replaced floor boards and stock controls with aftermarket pegs and forward controls which helped, but would still be more comfortable with 2-3 more inches. Handlebar is comfortable as is but 2-3 more inches would be no problem, I have long arms w 38 inch sleeve length.

It made a big difference for me at 6'1" 250# s .My bike is a stock ultra limited except for performance Items.I tried several afttermarket ones on similar bikes my friends own I feel this one pushed me back the same or more and was 1/2 the price. If u find one in stock at a dealer try it .Ride Safe Thxs Dave

I am 5' 7"

What does this seat do to the riding position. I want something wider and more comfortable than the stock 17 ultra seat. I would also like to be either the same distance or a little closer to the bars.
Asked by: sumncguy
Hey sumncguy, It varies. I have a several ideas in regards to a comfort upgrade, but honestly I wouldn't be able to offer a solid opinion without you on a bike in front of me. If you're able to, I highly recommend visiting your nearest dealer to test out some seats. Not only testing out the seats, but also positioning on the bike w/ different bars as well. Your 5'7" might be more leg, or also more torso, so that's why we would recommend that your see the dealer. They will be able to assist!
