I've always loved Russell Day Long Saddles. I've owned two on two different bikes. Through social media I found a used RDL that would fit my 02 Wing. The fellow that had it built for him is about the same build as I & it was also sliced for a Utpoia backrest which I had on my stock seat. Price was $200.00

I fit the Utpoia in the RDL today & put the saddle on the bike. My first impression is the firmness of the of the RDL vs the stock. After a short 50 mile ride I could feel support in the RDL that the stock seat lacked.

Being inseam challenged I was afraid it it would raise the seat height to where I couldn't use it. It raised it to about where it was with the airhawk on it. It also moved me back a bit. Which I like. it now doesn't seem so cramped.

For $200 I was afraid of what I may be getting. (The fellow bought a 2018 Wing & put the stock seat back on for the sale of his 03) I'm surprised in the shape its in. And for the short 50 mile ride today all seemed fine. Time will tell. So far I'm pleased with this purchase!

If the RDL fits you, you will be a very happy camper.  I've had several RDL's and loved them all.  Great find.
