Re:Erdody Seats with pics 3 Years ago  
The main difference is the big touring gives you more legroom because it sits you up a little higher and back a little further, but both seats are great, I have used both for many miles with great resuts. As stated before there is no seat to date that I have had that comes close to the comfort level of the Erdody seats, and I have had all the good ones on my bike.{mustang,ultimate}And If you decide to get a backrest rather it be solo or touring it is hands down the most adjustable, comfortable, bacrest out there. It completely blows away the mustang backrest I used to have. What I like most about it is that it can be adjusted while riding, and the padding is oh so comfy.

These seats look to be the dogs bollocks, think I'll be saving my tax return $$$s for one of these, which one though the lo rider looks as cool as the touring one! Thanks cheif riceburner for your time in posting these shots. I noticed though that the erdody website does not show the touring version. Swampy check these out too

Re:Erdody Seats with pics 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
I personally hate clicking on links for images, especially when you want to compare photos. So here's Cheif's previous post, now with photo goodness:

chiefriceburner wrote:
I thought I would share some pics of the two different E.D. designed seats along with the stock. Take note of a few areas of the E.D.design that I feel makes this the best designed seat on the market. First is the nose area, you will notice it is narrower than stock which eliminates pressure on the bottom thigh area. The second area is the top portion where the tailbone area is, You will see with the level that I placed on top {notice gap from bottom of level to seat} that it is dished out to eliminate pressure here as well allowing your sit bones to contact the seat in the correct areas. The stock seat however does just the opposite it is higher on the tailbone area and drops on the outside putting more pressure on the tailbone and less on the sit bones which as you know causes riding fatigue. The next area is the ridge area which is the area behind the tailbone this area prevents you from sliding back to far. And also notice from the side pics that the seat is sloped slightly back so that you do not slide forward. These pics were taken on my 2009 R* set up for solo riding. This is just a small sample of some points of the seat I thought were important. I will provide more pics later with others areas such as the pass seat the solo backrest, the passenger backrest on the sissy bar and the rider backrest built into the pass seat. I hope this helps to answer some of the questions that some have been wanting to know. If you have any others please feel free to ask.

P.S. Hey Chief, you may want to find another photo hosting site besides Photobucket because the links only last for so long, eventually they die and few things are as frustrating as searching for something, only to find it and all the photos are gone. It's better for business too when the photos are there. FWIW

Thanks doc. I did not really understand how to post photos so good back then, but you are right it a lot easier for comparison reasons to see the photo instead of the link. Thanks for doing that , I really appreciate it. By the way what site are you using for your photos?

Re:Erdody Seats with pics 2 Years, 6 Months ago  
Not a problem. Personally, I use Flckr. It's free to set up an account and they have never deleted any of my photos. They give you 200 free and if you exceed that, they don't delete them, they just get "pushed" in to the archives. If you get a paid account, you have unlimited photo storage, including access to any previously archived photos. I also like the fact that, should your account laps, everything stays, you just go back to the 200 photos limit with accessing to the latests 200. The others remain and so do any links to them. I also like their easy upload app. Here's a link to more detailed info: http://www.Flckr.com/help/limits/

Hope this help. And no, I don't work for Flckr.
