then tell her to get her own and ride next to you.

This question is asked often, I used to know a place, but they closed up. Also check into the corbin seats, they may offer a lady gunfighter seat. Check out sargent seats too.

Tell her if she ate more and had a fatter it wouldn't be an issue. JK Jk

My wife complains about mine as well, that's the solution I give her.

All kidding aside, If it's just the rear pillion seat, the foam is really thin. You can get new foam at a place called "The Foam Store" on 34th. They have all kinds of foam in different densities.

The problem you are going to find is that when you replace the foam, it may be thicker, and when you re-staple the cover back on it will either look retarded, or the foam is too thin and the staples poke through.

Then with a thicker foam you will need new cover material casue the original doesn't stretch as well.

There's a fabric store on 59 at Shepherd that has material really cheap, but it doesn't really match very well. I have some extra if you want to give it a try, i ave enough to do the front and rear seat, just come get it out of my shop. I had to buy a whole yard just to cover my seat, when I carved the foam out of it.

Ask me how I know.

You might google sargent seats and try them. There's another guy online that does amazing work, but I can't seem to find him anywhere now.

Gonna look when I get home and I'll post up if I find the link.

I'll sell you a Triumph America and she can sit back there comfortably all day and get her drink on. I'll throw in a sissy bar so her drunk doesn't fall off.
