    AriNight, the seat sits pretty much same as stock. My wife is about 5'4" and can easily put both feet on the ground. With the LeatherLykes saddlebags you have to relocate the turn signals down to the license plate bracket. It was not that hard to do. It did involve removing the rear fender and splicing in a little extra wire to reach their new location. The extra wiring and splicers are included with the relocation kit that comes with the saddlebags. The only thing I would do different if I were to do it again is to run the wires as far as I could and through the existing holes in the fender, there are two, before crimping on a wire splicer. It is more difficult to pull the wires with the splicers attached through the two holes. I took a couple of pictures during the process I will be happy to share if you would like...

    Hi, I have a question about your wife's bike. I also have an Aero and looking to do the same setup with the seat, saddlebags and fender luggage rack. Did the Ultimate seat make her sit lower or at the same height as the stock seat? Did you have to move the taillights so the saddlebags would fit? Is that difficult? Thanks for anything that you can tell me. AriNight
