Glad to see I'm not the only one who also loves the statement seat (there's a few threads on how a lot of folks think it's terrible). Just got it last week and I like it better than the stock seat. Has a better shape/angle to it that fits me better. Plus I previously had a really hard Corbin seat on my sportster for 10 years prior to the Bobber so I'm pretty accustomed to that type of seat. Was also thinking about it, and throughout my entire life my desk chairs have always been wooden ones. Even today, my computer station desk chair is an ikea wooden folding one that I love and have never thought about changing. Wonder if that in some way has conditioned me? Who knows. Anyways, enjoy your ride and have fun with the mods!
