I did 640 miles on the statement seat in the last two days. Do not recommend!! Love the look, but it's smaller and thinner. Much less padding. It's basically a seat to look good while cruising around town. IMO

I am 6'3"" and weigh 170 lbs and love my Statement seat and find it comfortable. I like the lower profile and in my opinion the Statement seat enhances the overall look of the Bobber. I also like the quality of the seat. Granted I am not using my Bobber as a touring bike, it is a cruiser. I take a break after 40-50 miles and in another 50 or so miles I am looking for a gas station. If you are looking for the most comfort go with the stock seat. If you are looking for that low profile look of the Bobber, and a still comfortable seat go with the Statement.

I am a 6'3" 210 lbs rider and wholeheartedly agree, the statement seat is a winner. For the looks of course but also riding position fully back thus slightly lower. Not a tourer so I don't have an issue with it being harder and by the way it is not that much more narrow. It still has the lower back support. Suites me very well.

I'm 5'10" and about 140lbs. I can go about 2 hours on the statement seat before I start shifting my weight around and feeling like I'd like to get off. By that point other parts of my slightly broken body are wanting a break anyway so for me it's fine. But I do find it surprisingly comfortable.

Having said that, I haven't actually ridden the Bobber with a stock seat, so perhaps I can't miss what I've never had? The test bike I rode had a statement seat and I wanted one on mine for the looks

Thank you!

It's going to get more blacked out after my 500 mile service

Thats a nice, relaxing view!
The only problem i forsee is the constant urge to accessorize when your bike is always directly in front of you
