Yeah thread is a few months old.....

I had a RDL on my 05, got it used - it was a good seat, allowed me to be able to ride much longer trips with ease - but It wasn't made for me and I didn't care for the way it looked with all the ribs and stitching....

For the 15 I knew I was going to need a new seat and with all the reviews out there on the LAAM at a much easier price to swallow I went for one.... Seth did a great job, looks comfort, & price.... Very Happy with the LAAM...

I know - opinions are like @$$holes.... everyones got one....

Just stating that you honestly can't go wrong with a LAAM seat either...

FWIW, after tons of research on this forum, I chose to go with Spencer of "Great Day to Ride".


Didn't want the wings that are on the RDL, which also would require redoing the passenger seat for a visual match, and Spencer is about 1/4 the cost of anything else.

I get the seat back today and will report back after some long trips on it.
