Looking for the best seat 900 custom '07

My cousin bought herself an '07 900 custom and would like to replace the seat.
I was looking at the saddlemen profiler but before I buy for her I want a little input.
Who has what aftermarket seat and whaddya think?

I have the saddleman renegade and it drops me down and inch and moves me forward an inch, not sure if the profiler does the same . but it took about 500 miles before i broke it in and really felt the difference.

I have a mustang on my classic and wont leave home with out it, on my custom i have a saddleman solo, gel underneath gets a little hot in the summer but its comfortable for me ... not as good as my mustang, but a fair bit better than the stocker .... the mustang's have a deeper "well" and a little more back support, but remember .... one man's pleasure is another man's pain, buy the seat thats best for you.

As i flipped into 5th, i couldnt remember a damn thing she said

Put a mustang daytripper on my classic. And it's a night and day difference.

I have an Ultimate, which replaced my Saddleman, which replaced the stock seat (sic). With 3 bad disks I am exquisitely sensitive to seating. With the stocker, I could ride maybe 30 minutes; the Saddleman, an hour if I pushed it. In both cases I'd be bent over with numb legs for a day or 2. With the Ultimate, no pain to speak of after 3+ hours. The seat is amazing and, IMHO,worth every penny of the extra $$$!

I have one on my Classic and have put around 6k miles on it. I picked it up off craigslist last year and added a single backrest stitched to match the seat. It moves me down/back slightly and the back support even without the backrest is great. Rub a little mink oil on it from time to time to keep it looking new. Mine was already broken in but some people say that breaking in a Corbin is pretty rough.

Edit: To show the difference, here are profile shots of the stock seat vs the Dual Tour.

Every butt is different, but I sure do like my Mustang Wide Touring. The first few hundred miles were stiff, after that, it was incredible! I can ride all day on that seat. Haven't felt uncomfortable since on my bike, I can easily ride tank to tank.

I've got the Mustang Vintage with driver backrest -- I couldn't ride more than 30-40 min on the stock seat, but am fine for a few hours now, no problem. Well worth the $$, I think.

FYI, the Mustang raised me UP by ~1" and BACK by ~1", so I ended up getting the HR2 risers to bring the bars back by ~1-2". This makes the seat-bar relationship roughly the same as stock, which was one thing I did find comfortable with the OEM seat.
