New member from western arkansas bought a 97 gl 1500se and love it. Are there any folks on here from Arkansas?
I am 42 and a truck driver I haul hazmat for a living out of Memphis Tn. I was looking for a seat recommendation to get me a little further back and a little softer ride. Owned the bike for 2 weekends now, and Have been on 3 mountains coolest place to ride right now got the wife to go with me today for first time but I think she was more interested in lunch...

Welcome to the forum. My first wife (1980's) was from Fayetteville, Arkansas and I loved the riding in those parts. Now she's in Hawaii...maybe I should hook up with her again. Beautiful roads, nice people, and geez...some humongous bugs! Riding at night in the summertime was especially enjoyable with the fireflies flickering low in the grass.

Welcome to the forum from your neighbor to the west, Texas. My wife and I honeymooned in your beautiful state 35 years ago, and have been back a number of times over the years. Made the trip to Mena year before last on my Wing and plan to go back to your lovely state in October.

Welcome, Warren & congrats on a fine bike!

I had a Russell All-day seat made for me when I had my '94. I'm 6'2" & the stock seat was really painful on my lower back after a couple hours (I'm about 15 years older than you). Russell is only one option, & it's a rather expensive one at that. I still wasn't able to ride "all day," but it was worth the expense & they are very good at making adjustments, although I'm a LOT closer to them than you are.

A good seat & backrest will make a world of difference. I'm sure there's already a lot of info on this site about seats, and there is a ton of experience + being a friendly, helpful bunch here.

WELCOME! Ride safe.
