Forum Poll - Leather choice for new seat

I love my current seat except it is a little small at 13" and needs a bit more kick up in the rear to hold me on (especially because of the lowered angle I have it mounted)! Thus, I am looking at getting a new seat. I have decided on one of the new La Rosa Bobber seats. I have narrowed it down to a specific model (15" tuck n roll) but am debating on which leather choice. Here is a pic of the bike, a pic of the actual seat in a brown/black leather, and a pic of a saddle bag in the other leather that I also like. Just imagine the same seat but in this leather which they call "Rusty" (I think it will be similar in color to my current seat?). So, which leather would you go with (brown/black or rusty)? Thanks!!

Given the look of your hot rod, RUSTY!

Although my preference is brown (pic attached), I must agree with the earlier comment in that 'rusty' would seem to suite your ride.

Cheerio,

I think this is a great deal and will look good on your bike.

Appreciate the responses!! Keep um coming. If it makes a difference, I'll probably go with a dark brown or black thread versus the white in the pic. Thanks in advance.
