I hope you ordered the seat directly through Boss. I ordered mine through Bruce at Tracks USA. It took 6 weeks. Boss is filling orders through their headquarters in Utah first. All orders through dealers get second call. I found that out after several calls to Boss. Very nice seat but crappy service.

Wow!! $488. That is a lot for a seat. I stick with put my cash into speed mods. Let us know how you like it though. For that kind of money it should feel like you are riding on a Cadillac. :mellow:

from what i'm hearing... i believe it will ride like a caddy.... remember the oem will always build a seat to fit the mass while these guys are custom designing it to fit height, weight, and riding style...the seat can be made to be 1 - 2 inches taller than your standard seat depending on your riding style...i spent about 20 minutes on the phone with the engineer questioning me about my height, weight, and riding style...so if its custom built it should ride great...as far as sliding off...i ride so far foward i never even touch the back of the seat anyway....and thats what they make handlebars for ...to hold on too......they do also make the traditional style of seat although that is also custom built to you. i'll try it and report back to you all....but from what i have heard from others and boss themselves i believe i will be very happy.... :D

Don't worry. You'll love the seat. I've got over 400 miles on my Flattop. It's awesome for standup riding and where one knee rests on on the seat. That nut pad is designed to place your knee on. It'll jack up your center of gravity while kneeling. Really allows a lot of leverage to cut while riding powder. When riding the moguls I like to ride way forward on the hump. It changes the entire personality of the sled. Very easy to transition from sit to stand position. I'll never have another sled without one. It also saved 7 pounds.

I CALLED AND GOT AHOLD OF THEM RIGHT AWAY AND I BELIEVE ITS GONNA BE WORTH IT...THE WEDGE SEEMS LIKE IT WILL PUSH YOU FORWARD INTO THE TANK, IT HAS TO ...LOOK AT THE WAY ITS SET UP...I REALLY DON'T THINK I WOULD LIKE THAT ...WHILE THE BOSS SEAT RAISES UP THE SEAT WHILE STILL MAINTAINING THE FEEL OF A REGULAR SEAT. I THOUGHT LONG AND HARD ABOUT WHICH ONE AND FINALLY DECIDED ON THE BOSS BASED ON THE PROJECTED FEEL OF THE SEAT
