you sit in the front or the back, your seat should not bite
you, make your back sore, nor make you shift forward.
Your personal space and width should accommodate your size.
The driver should be able to be flat-footed. Driver's
having a backrest should not be cramped or not touching.
Riders come in all sizes. Bar Enterprises makes certain
that our seats accommodate the driver and the passenger.
When you arrive, you should be relaxed and feeling good.
is John's 2001 Sportster XLH 1200.
John is from New Jersey. This bike is truly a beauty. As you
can see he has done a lot of changes to personalize this bike.
Some of the changes include: Vance/Hines Straight shots pipes,
viper tips, demon tail light, S/S blue spot turn signals, Victory Red Kuryakyn Hypercharger, Ruby red eyed skull for the pet cock valve,
the base paint is pearlescent white with red, white blue paint
scheme. He wanted to replace the stock seat on the bike with a
custom look to go with the rest of his personalization.
Wow, really a
cool bike so far. But, his wants included another look and
feel. John wrote: "While I would have preferred a solo
seat, I'm looking for a sleek seat design that mounts like the stock
seat for simplicity purposes. As such, the Cobra seat without spots and
skirt should suit my purposes. I think too that based upon my paint
scheme, red flames sewed onto the seat will fit with my overall
look." He also choose Millennium Foam to "save my butt,
which big as it is needs a lot of saving". John choose the
Dream Cobra (seat "B") with the Flame Inlay. We
suggested the Flame Inlay done in our hot "Lipstick
John, is a big guy. He
is 6' and 210 pounds. One very nice feature of a Cobra is the driver
is able to move back and forth on this particular seat. Rearranging
yourself helps for comfort long hauls.
John is not just an weekend rider either. John says, "As to
rides, I ride every day, rain shine, cold weather, etc. As such,
most are "commutes". On long rides, I average about 5
hours before the ass goes somewhat numb; but I'm no wuss".
Naww, he doesn't look like no wuss! But he did choose Millennium
Foam for that new seat! John, how did the Millennium Foam work out
John got his new seat in
late October 2001. But, not without a problem. He could not
get it on! He got in touch right away, and we did a quick
phone call back to him. But, wait, he explains it better.
" Patty Baby, you guys are good. Andy called at my office with some
installation advice. Within 6 minutes, seat was on and looking great!!!!
Simply readjusted back bracket and then banged that front
end like a virgin on prom night and thus, a tight fit!! Was hoping to
debut the seat on Sunday "911 Motorcycle benefit run" now that
it's in the seat will "break it's cherry" tomorrow night at
Rutt's Hutt (clifton, NJ) weekly bike night -- 150-350 bikes on any
Wednesday for a few cold ones and the BEST hot dogs on the East Coast.
Please thank Andy - you guys are
great -- a good product and SUPER service.
Let Andy know what a peach you are."
John. It was a pleasure working with you. Thanks a lot for
sharing the pictures with us.
