Tallboy Seat is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect seat of taller riders Got this seat put on when I purchased the bike. I'm 6'2' and my gf is 5'6". I think she loves it more than me. She loves how big the passenger pad is and I've even had people ask me to sit on my bike just to try the seat. Excellent job Harley!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect investment I'm 6'2" and my wife is 5'8". We both love the seat. It's extremely comfortable. I was going to spend a lot more money on a custom seat but wanted to try out this seat from Harley, and I'm really glad I did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long distance comfort At 6'3" ive had to change the seat on every motorcycle ive owned.The 2015 Road Glide Special i bought was no exception.I tried the tallboy seat my dealer had for demo.I couldn't believe how comfortable it was.It was like adding 2" of rear suspension. Seating position is perfect,i love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built and comfortable At first i was reluctant to purchase this because it did not look as comfortable as the stock seat. Granted, the stock seat isn't the most comfortable. Was I ever wrong. The high density foam is much more comfortable than the stock seat. I am 6'5" and this puts me back far enough that I do not have to worry about the handlebars hitting my knees when I make tight turns on my '13 Ultra Limited

Will this seat work with the adjustable driver back rest on a 2015 Road King?

Asked by: Vart
Hey Vart, The Tallboy seat does not fit with the adjustable rider's backrest, only the standard.

When installed, my seat has a wrinkle - is this normal?

I've never purchased a new Harley replacement seat before, so I'm not sure if this will fix itself over time or what, and the dealership didn't know either. They ordered me another one but that one was wrinkled out of the box. Just doesn't seem right, and looks cheap.
Asked by: Thunder71
If you are referring to the wrinkle that runs across the seat, that's normal and just a result of the design. It's on mine and every other tallboy seat I've seen. I think one small wrinkle is tolerable in exchange for the extra reach and comfort.

What driver backrest will work with this seat?

The description states that the adjustable backrest will not work with this seat, but doesn't give the part number of the driver backrest that will go with this seat.
