is it the seat height he wants lowered or the whole bike. Seat would be easiest and cheapest way I would think

Working riding whenever we can. Wish I had more time to hang out with my goldwing family!

any of the custom seat manufacturers can build a lowered seat. or check with the local auto upholsterer they can usually cut the foam down and re-install the cover

If it's the stock OEM seat then I'd have the foam replaced with something firmer that can also be cut down without losing comfort.

The roads and byways, no matter how beautiful and exhilarating, are a lonelier place now. RIP Bagmaster (Baggy).
