Mustang seat has arrived. '11 Custom

I had to put my Saddlemen bag on backwards to make it fit on the Mustang seat. Thoughts?

I didn't like the look of the Wide Touring seat when I first put it on my Custom, but the bag you've got makes all the difference. Mine didn't look right until I put a back rest and saddle bags on. You're looks good as it.

I love the way it looks on yours! My personal opinion is that saddle bags look weird on the 9. Regarding my situation, I'm just worried that other bikers will say, "Dude, your bag is on backwards." I think it does look "normal" on this Mustang seat. In the end, it's all about how you ride. I chose comfort over looks.

This seat pushes you backward? Higher or lower?

I had to mount the bag in the opposite direction it's supposed to be. The straps on the bag wouldn't fit around the rear of the Mustang seat. The seat fits perfect to me! No complaints at all! Should have gotten rid of that stock seat sooner.

My buddy wants to buy my stock seat. Anyone know how much one is worth?

I've got the Mustang seat but with driver's backrest -- the "pocket" of the seat is 1" deeper (measured from the center of the handlebars), but 1" higher than stock (measured directly from the ground up). My arms were stretched out with the stock seat, so the Mustang was just a little too far away. I got bar risers and now it's perfect.

Steve, you wouldn't happen to have a pic of your bike with seat and backrest that you could post? My girlfriend bought a 2012 900 SE last fall and she wants to put a new seat on it. She's having a hard time finding something she likes. She'd prefer a solo seat and luggage rack but with the mounting system on the 9, I guess that is not possible. She's got mile long legs so a seat that sits her further back on the bike would be good. Any pics you could post of seat and backrest would be much appreciated.
Thanks.
