When ordering a RDL what's the most common seating position option for most of you , forward , middle or back? I'm 6ft 250lbs , I'm thinking middle for me to still leave plenty of room for the wife.

If anything I need my oem seat 1” lower. Getting the handle bar risers to bring the handlebars closer to me but could use a little less seat height maybe 1/2” or so

So far we have about 200 miles on the seat, did about 170 today even here in Michigan 45 degrees!!
The seat is so nice, the wife likes it also. I can tell as we ride it longer it truly does feel better and better, it has a way of cradling you more and more. Very satisfied with the RDL. Spending 26K on a bike, the seat has to be right to enjoy it to the max.

Told ya you'd like it..... ?

Glad it's working out for you......I don't think I'd ever own another bike without getting a RDL put on it for long term comfort.

yeap, that's why I don't get an RDL, you lost your flat footing.

It has been my long term whine: that anyone can make a more comfortable seat if you make it 2 inches higher; but no one seems to be able to make a more comfortable seat without losing height...comparable to the comfort you gain.

Maybe these will help you?...

Interesting that your feet no longer sit flat but your arms are more relaxed (bent at the elbow). Seems like an overall win.
