Saddlemen Renegade Solo Seat and Pillion Pad: Used and Abused

As abused by Jeff G. Holt

Back in 2009 we installed this seat on our beloved 1995 Road King, and it has had at the very least 20,000 miles of booty duty on it since. The seat is low and simple, which I love, and its UV-resistant premium-grade vinyl cover hasn’t hardened or gotten any sort of rips or tears even from the bundle of keys I always have hanging from my belt loop. The gel insert is still comfortable and shows no signs of migration, which can be a problem with other seats after just a few months of saddle time. The pillion pad is also still hanging tough, and the ol’ lady says it’s just as comfy (as a little padded p-pad can be) as the day she first rode on it. After using this seat setup for half a decade now, I can say it truly is a great value for the money.
