Tallboy Seat is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tall Boy Seat This was a GREAT purchase. The comfort level for myself and my riders increased 100%. Easy to install and extremely comfortable for long rides. If I have one issue, it would only be that when I walked into my local HD dealer, was told the seat was not available except on line. Ordered seat, and in confirmation was clearly stated that seat would be shipped from that very same dealer (mind you I also paid extra to get priority shipping) from one city away from mine in the very same state! Once again - great purchase and very happy with the product itself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Supportive Seat! I'm 6'4" and the seat offers me great leg room and tailbone support, and it's all around good perch. Just a reminder, with a new seat that changes the riding position the handlebars, windscreen and mirrors may all have to be changed also which was the case for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Seat for Tall Riders Just put this seat on my 2005 Road King. Seat raises me up and slightly puts me back. The height increase is the most noticeable, and helps with my hip and knee angle. I am 6'05" tall, and much more comfortable now! The passenger pillion is also much more comfortable for my wife with more cushioning and a higher height. Well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from More comfortable than factory seat Easy to install but short sissy bar won't work with it on a Road King Classic. After purchasing tall bar life is good and mama is much happier. A little more room makes a big difference. Doesn't look as good as factory seat but I'm comfortable for twice the distance.
