Here are the pictures of my new seat. I'm not sure if the pictures will show up or not.

Nice

That looks real comfortable.

Does it add any height over the stock seat?

Nice looking seat. BTW, who manufactured your passenger armrests?

Reminds me of the back of an alligator.

Great Looking Seat! How's the ride? How much room is there for the rear pillion? I had a corbin seat on my Montauk that when I had both back rests installed, there wasn't enough room for my bride. (She's petite by the way.) Did you do the drive-in thing? Ride safe!

That's a really good looking seat. Leather or vinyl?

Looks like it is really well designed. Noticed the indentations for the passengers legs ... nice touch. Seat heating elements still work?

Seat

You and the SO will love that seat. Took ours Alaska-Ohio and back this summer and it's a wonderful seat! Enjoy!

The armrests are from Don Muddiman at http://www.eagle-i.us/
Just ordered some myself, looking forward to them arriving in about 10-14 days.

I have the same armrests. Very easy to install and the wife loves them.

I'll try to answer everyone's questions. The seat is leather, there is plenty of room for the wife on the back. The armrests are Muddimans, the wife loves them. The seat height is higher than the stock seat, my mick o pegs are even more comfortable because my shins don't hit the engine guard like they did before. I don't have to point my toes out anymore. The driver backrest is from Russell, the passenger backrest is not. Hope i answered everyones questions.
