I’m not a seller but I’m 6’6” tall . I called Hartco seats in Florida and they hooked me up with a taller seat that is further back. Helped to get my knees out of the dashboard.

I'm not as tall as Dougrad, I'm almost 6'2" but I purchased an Ultimate King seat because I got tired of having my knees crammed into the fairing also. A cheap seat, no, a comfortable seat that solved my leg space problem, YES!! I don't know why I rode in misery for a year before purchasing a different seat.

Russel day long seat. They take your dimensions and seat, then customize. I found the Ultimate seat to be too firm. Gorgeous seat, just like sitting on cardboard.
