New for Tuesday: Wide Tripper with Driver Backrest

With our new Wide Tripper seat, the name pretty much says it all — it’s a substantially wider seat that provides comfort for you — the driver — as well as your passenger.  And that improvement doesn’t come at the expense of style and sleekness, because this seat is one great-looking piece of motorcycle furniture.

The new Mustang Wide Tripper style offers a surprising full 14-inch width for the driver and an 11-inch width for the passenger. That adds up to a new level of comfort and support for both riders, whether you’re heading across town or on a long run. Just by adding two inches, the ride becomes ridiculously comfortable, and when you install the fully adjustable backrest, you remove the strain from long rides.

The backrest, which is optional, offers several height adjustments and can pivot to your back angle to create a custom feel. When you’re just cruising around town, you can simply lift out the driver backrest — no tools required — and the seat is transformed into a classic, low profile style. The wider base provides additional support to the back, which means your entire body benefits from the genius of this moth-old design.

The Wide Tripper with the driver backrest fits the 1997 through 2010 Harley-Davidson FL Touring family of bikes, and sells for only $579 retail. Made right here in the USA and first introduced during the Daytona Bike Week last month, the Wide Tripper with Driver Backrest truly combines comfort for your back and sleek styling.
