Could anyone say a Daytripper is more comfortable than a Lepara Bare Bones ?

Dakez has a good point about box seats; I'm lucky though, Ive got a skinny vibration proof ass and I don't weigh much so most anything that's as wide as my ass is good enough for me. I am going to bring my sportster to bitchn stichn in Lakewood so they can build it up and move me back a couple of inches. They and many other outfits can rework your foam so it fits your butt..

I had a bare bones on an 04 883. The seat looked great. I m not kidding when I say I could not ride that bike more than 5 - 10 miles without my ass hurting. I returned it and bought a Mustang for about 200 bucks. Could not have been happier with it. Did a 1000 mile round the lake ride no problems. I am about 210 pounds on a good day. Get the Mustang you wont be dissapointed.

My box Mustang seat has been great on my Dyna. Not the Daytripper though. After a two hour ride on a nice looking seat, I called Mustang and asked them to send me the ugliest seat they made. It has been super comfortable.

The best I have found to date for the 48 (outside of having one custom made) is the Danny Gray seats.

I also like the Spring seat from HD.
