Longer Seat?

Does anyone make a longer seat / saddle for the Goldwing? I ride solo 99% of the time and it would be nice to have a bit more room.

Ultimate Seat makes a king version. It moves you back in the saddle an inch and a half which gives more room between your knees and the fairing.

I swapped out to a Wingsoft a few years ago.
http://www.bikesolutionsllc.com/wingsoft-large.html

It sits me back a couple inches and gave more room for my long legs. Although that also caused me to add risers to the bars to bring them up and back to keep from reaching. I love both modifications.

Sure wish Wingsoft was still an option for the older gold wings. They were the only moderately priced option out there! Especially if you wanted to get the extra couple inches. I have a 2008, and my vinyl was too dry for them to work with.

Corbin sells a lot of seats but the people I know that has them say they are as hard as a horse saddle. Russel Day long is probably the most expensive but by far the best. Make an appointment and ride in and have it custom made for your body.
