Thanks for the input, but ironically, that's what my bike came with, [the classic tour seat] and my tailbone has never been the same. I couldn't ride for more than 15 mins before it started to hurt and after 30, it was unbearable. As a result, I went with a stock seat and a $20 Walmart gel pad . It's been 6 months and the pain has almost gone but I sit way too high now. I hope there's an option that works for me.
What about the Yamaha Star Accessories, Comfort Cruise Boulevard Seat?
Considering I'm looking for lower, narrower seat that does not push me forward, how does it compare? Any big-guys out there have experience with it?
I have the famous Walmart gel pad too. LOL

Chiefriceburner-. I don't doubt the comfort of the ED seats, and the price is certainly good, but they look I have two choices, either too high or too far forward for me. Can you offer any insight on this?
Gram- for the very reasons stated above, I've been looking at the Corbin Hollywood seat. How has that been on long rides for you?
Yes I have a solution. The standard E.D.Seat which is what I now have on mine. It drops you lower and still keeps you back, again all day comfort. If you want one with studs I have one available that I will sell for $300.
