    Hi all, thanks for the welcome. I am upgrading from my 05 RK Classic to a fresh one soon, and sitting on the demo bike made me realise the 09 is harder to reach the ground on. The seat is higher or wider, I am not sure. I do not want to change susspension so changing the seat is an obvious way to go.

    Being so isolated, recommendations on brands and models would be appreciated, so I can check things out on the good old internet and place an order.

    Also, everything I hear about the new bike is Sunny Days and Free Beer, but I think thats most likely dealer talk. If you have any solid info I can use to prepare myself and the bike for our life long love affair it would be appreciated. I know every silver cloud has a dark lining.

    Thanks all, keep well.

    You can have it shaved or I also thought that HD had a seat (reduced reach) that was a bit narrower. The '09's are everything you've heard and more. Love mine.
