Hi all. New here. Been riding over 30 years. My newest bike is a 99 superglide with some motor work done to it. Love the bike so far but my back is not good any more and I need a little bit of support or my rides are very short. I found this SCORPION solo seat that looks like it will give my back the support it needs. My question is...Does anyone have this seat on a superglide and can send me a pic PLEASE. I think I might get it but I don't want it to look hideous. However, I'm getting to the point anymore where COMFORT comes before COOL. THANKS EVERYONE[indent][/indent]

If it works, and you can live with the looks, who gives a rats ass what anybody else thinks? I know guys that ride with a rolled up sleeping bag strapped to the back as a back support. Of course a big tittied young lady works pretty good too.

Well out of the two choices I'd say the big titted young lady is the winner... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hysterical.gif)

Yep, welcome and as long as you're happy with it, do it and screw the haters.
Don't need that kind of drag in life.

I'd go with something like this, similar to what Bamsambo has in his profile pic.

1999 Dyna Solo with Backrest....clicky here

Keep your seat and stunning good looks of your Dyna and sit on this. I have one, that I used on my Softail Deuce and on a ride to the Tail of the Dragon, in Tennes-fukin'-see, from New Jersey. The ride on a softail sucked but not as much if I didn't have this bad boy.

Good luck! Welcome...

Ride safe

Those things do work. Fbomber loaned me one for my return from Cape Cod and it worked like a charm.

While those do work and work well, the OP stated it was his back that gives him problems when riding and it appears to me he is looking for something with back support and not just more pad for his ass. Since my ol' lady hardly ever lets me ride without her on the back, I have her for a backrest......and she works well also! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/whistling.gif)
