The seat on my first bike, a 2005 Honda Shadow, was like riding on a cement block! I replaced it with a Mustang seat and it was heavenly!
My 2014 Harley-Davidson Street Glide was a little bit of a reach for me to the ground and handlebars after putting some hours in the seat. The folks at Corbin fixed me up with a solo seat narrower in front so I can flat foot the ground and padded the seat back to put me forward a little to give me a more comfortable reach to handlebars. You will need to give a measurement or two. Call them. We spend all that money on the bike, spend a little more to be safe and comfortable to enjoy your ride.

Mustang makes a nice seat, unfortunately they do not offer a reach seat to accommodate women riders who are under 5 feet 6 inches tall. There are few companies that offer this product, unless you look into a customized seat which can get pricey.

I don't ride a HD. Didn't help me at all. No new ideas.

When it comes to market share of what motorcycles women are riding, Harley-Davidson leads the way, i.e. more women ride a Harley-Davidson than any other brand. So, we posted this story for the large majority of women who ride a Harley-Davidson.

That said, Women Riders Now is an online magazine showcasing all brands, so, in addition to the Harley stories we post, we regularly feature stories on accessories for other brands of motorcycles. Many of the readers of Women Riders Now ride a cruiser, sportbike or sport touring motorcycle from the four leading Japanese manufacturers, as well as bikes from the smaller European manufacturers. We make it our mission to cover it all with respect to what women are riding. Please check back regularly, or sign up for our newsletter to make sure you don't miss those other stories.
