I'm on the stock 2006 XL883 suspension. It's not great, but at least it isn't the low setup. Holding off on upgrading it until I'm sure I'll keep the bike for more than another year or two. If the wife likes riding 2-up, I'll have to trade for something more suitable.

I have a Harley Sundowner (2 up) seat which moves me forward and up. I also added two inches of foam and a Air Hawk air cushion on top of that.
Did the Sundowner move you up/forward without the extra padding? Or, only after adding it?
