Lu200far

New to this forum. After owning six Harley’s I decided to join the dark (light?) side and bought a 2019 Goldwing Tour. Love it, except for the seat. I’m amazed that Honda put such an uncomfortable saddle on this bike. There seems to be a very small aftermarket but I need a solution. Any others have experience with this?

Russell Day Long seat. Custom made for your dimensions. Arguably the best there is.

Wingsoft aftermarket on my 2010 has worked great for me for 8 years. Mine moved me back a few inches and releaved the knee strain I used to have on long trips. Take a look;

I've heard he works on the new model seat and has come up with some solutions.

Welcome to the forum. Honda designs great bikes, not great seats.

Welcome to the GWOF from the Keystone state. I had a Saddleman Roadsofa on my 98 Wing and loved it. Quite a few 600+ miles per day on that one.. Hope you find one that fits you.

Enjoy the forum and get to know the great bunch of guys/gals on here.

Welcome to the GWOF from another PA. guy. For my money and my 1500, I have always had great results, and trusted Hartco Seats.

Here's a link to their site an a pic of their aftermarket entry.
