Wife not happy with comfort of the stock seat, want to do some distance touring this summer

These 2 look good....

Anyone fitted one of these, especially to an older dyna? What the verdict? They say the passenger widt is about 13.5 to 14" My stock is about 8" looking at the width of the rear fender I am not sure how it works. Surely the rear of the seat sticks out over the side , if you know what I mean.

Will I get problems with the cissy bar? I think its a Harley original.

My 2cents worth. Is the Dyna paid for.... a '97, I'd sure hope so. Leave it alone. Great bar hopper, lousy touring bike..... how do I know???

If you are going to tour, do the right thing, invest in a true touring bike instead of trying to make one. Bite the bullet, get a 'Glide' (Road, Street, Electra) YOU WON'T BE SORRY! And neither will SHE
