I'd feel much more comfortable buying from you if you can provide me a real customer reference of someone who has fitted your seats on a 2012 Speedmaster. I'm definitely interested, but need to some assurance.
I've been looking into solo seats for the SM for sometime now and the Maverick seat is highly praised. I went for the OEM Gel Seat because i wanted something 'soft' and wasn't sure about getting a lower seat. My SM arrives on Monday and the first thing i'm going to do is attempt to swap the seat.

Thanks Vince. Could you also post a pic once you have it fitted? Let me know if you had to buy any additional hardware to get it on.

Vince, thanks for your latest email.. Can you post some pics with the seat on for the guys here..
The Triumph gel seats are a slightly softer seat than the stock ones, but softer does not necessarily mean more comfortable when it comes to bike seats..
I started the LowRider seats as the factory options were too ugly and expensive for me personally.. If anyone is worried about the lower seat height, bear in mind I can double the thickness of the foam in the seat to make it more the original seat height..


I really like the look of the Matt black.. Might have to do a paint job with a hint of colour on a Matt black finish... Hmmm

Have the Maverick seat and pillion on my 11 speedmaster. As previously said fits perfectly.
You sits lower on the bike than the stock seat, less windy at high speed, my friend and its 1200 sportster can't follow me above 130 km/h because he's too high on the bike
