Brother, I was about to start a Thread about this very subject. Im 6'5 and 270lbs and I dont want to sit "on top of the bike" I wanna sit in the bike, like I did on my softail, I sold my deluxe in order to trick out a RG, but after sitting on several touring bikes, I will have to run a 3 inch drop kit. I dont wanna run 20 inch apes on it either, hence getting the drop seat kit. Id like to run some modified beach bars or some mild apes. I think the drop seat will help me fit in the bike and be able to rin some smaller apes and still be able to stretch out my arms.
Another question I have is can you run side panels with a drop seat kit? Ive called sinister industries and Yaffe and HHI and no-one can tell me. Im sure you would have to trim or cut to fit, but you would also think someone would make some panels. Seems like the Camtechcustoms guy would chime in on this subject. Since he mentioned they offer a body kit.
You would think that there is several people on here that have drop seat kits. Maybe everyone is average height. LOL Seems like Im a bigger fella.
