Harley-Davidson Zeppelin Motorcycle Seat Review


Harley-Davidson Zeppelin Motorcycle Seat

I must have extra nerves in my &$$! No matter what seat I try, after riding for about an hour or so, my butt is killing me and I’m looking for some relief! Thankfully, I found it when I borrowed a friend’s Electra Glide, which was fitted with H-D’s Zeppelin seat. The Zeppelin has several strategically placed air bladders, which allow you, at the touch of a button, to redistribute your weight once you start feeling uncomfortable. It’s hard to believe that inflating one set of bladders and releasing some air from others can make such a difference. And yet I’ve been able to extend my saddle time by several hours without any discomfort. When pain starts to set in, I just readjust the seat and I’m good to go.

Installation takes about 15 minutes. Just swap the rear mounting bracket from the old seat to the new, plug in the bike’s accessory plug, and install the Zeppelin just like the stocker. When you first turn on the ignition switch, you’ll hear the air compressor (enclosed in the seat) filling the reservoir. Once that’s done, the pump shuts down and you’re free to adjust as needed.

As for riders shorter than 5’10”, you’ll be on your tiptoes when stopped, so let the air out when around town. AIM

    I wish to show some thanks to you for rescuing me from this trouble. Right after scouting throughout the the web and coming across notions which were not productive, I figured my life was done. Being alive devoid of the approaches to the problems you have sorted out all through your entire article content is a critical case, and ones that could have badly damaged my entire career if I hadn’t noticed the blog. Your know-how and kindness in dealing with the whole lot was vital. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t encountered such a stuff like this. It’s possible to at this point relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for the reliable and amazing help. I won’t think twice to suggest your web sites to any person who will need guidance about this area.
