Default Ok.. I searched... Rumble Seat and coil brackets

I found way too much stuff in a search, but nothing really defined. I'm looking to get the Rumble seat for myself and possible 2 up here and there. I do long rides, such as the 400 miles I did last Saturday, and the stocker isn't "that" bad, but it hurts after getting off a bit. How's the Rumble for, say, 400+ miles or so?


Also, where the **** can I get a coil relocating bracket that mounts in the place of the left side scoop? I've looked everywhere. [:I]

The rumble is great for long trips, but I think at 400 miles your ass will still hurt regardless which seat you have!

I really like my Rumble. Even getting used to the looks. My wife says that it is very comfy but only has had the stock pad to compare it to. I did ride right at 450 miles one day going to Sturgis. I could still walk when I got there! I got the heated version/ nice when it gets chilly.

The Rumble seat is a vast improvement. Do you have short legs? Because the rumble is wider and may cause you some issues reaching the ground like you are accustomed. I suggest you find someone close by and sit on theirs before spending the cash.

PM darkstar for the bracket. He has a nice one. I think it is a Hardley product though. It might slow you down.

I think if you want the coils relocated to the left side you will have to fab the bracket yourself. Barons BAK relocates the coils under the tank and hides them completely along with several other sensors. if your looking to clean up the bike that might be a better way to go. I did mine about 3 months ago and installation is pretty simple takes about 5 hours if your carefull and take your time.

I rode my Warrior to and from The Dragon twice (350 mile trip one-way). The Rumble Seat made it possible for me. GREAT seat. I mean FANTASTIC for long trips. Like JamesD said, though, the seat is pretty wide... which is a non-issue when you're riding, but when you stop and put your feet down the edges of the seat will push against your inner thigh. Easy to get used to but might make it a little awkward if you're extra short. It's a great seat to hold lots of cargo, too! [8D]

That is where I think your wrong. I have the same problem, no ass, and after awhile it going to hurt no matter what. No natural cushion. But the Rumble is better over the stocker.

Will a gel pad added to the stocker yield as favorable results as the rumble? I am strictly talking about the rider... I know the passenger would be another story but for the occasional day trip I have a tough time with the cost. She's plenty happy with the stock pad so I am lucky in that aspect...
