I got my Wingsoft from the UPS guy about 2 hours ago. Put it on and OH WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!! :p

I got the Wingsoft large with the Utopia backrest. I can't believe what an immediate change this seat has made for me. I am up and back. My leg isn't pinched. I never would have thought tht a backrest would allow me to lean more in the twisties - but it does.

Next I'll get feedback from my wife on how she likes her mods.

Outstanding job John.

Do you notice any difference in your reach to the handlebars? Better or worse? Do you have floor boards with a heel/toe shifter?

I'm considering the same mod. :)

I love mine too!!
I just had hip surgery for torn cartilage and also have 2 bad lumbar disks. I rode as usual in pain/discomfort to Wings Over The Smokies a couple months ago and came first to the Ultimate seats, very nice but !!!! (I really like the low passenger backrest model) I then came to the Wingsoft tent and after checking them out though it worthwhile to try for $175, man was I right!
I'm now looking forward to riding to MA and NH in a couple weeks from Ga. I also have the Utopia backrest and don't notice a diff. in reach but sure do notice the difference in comfort.

I might get a shet of risers for the bars - I'm just not sure yet. I have a ride to morrow and that will guide me.

No floorboard. I have Kury pgs and a toe shifter. I was used to the heel/toe shifter from other bikes but I got used to only the toe very quickly. I also have ergo II driving pegs to stretch my legs.

No it doesn't effect the heated seats at all - except possibly make them more comforatble...
