If you like your Bobcat then seriously check out the Grammer seat I linked in my other post. IMO there isn't a seat that compares to it on the market.

Ferris is the only answer... The cheetah IS a great option but still does not come close.

Why not go with the obvious and get a suspension seat. They make a world of difference. My back thanks me every time I get off.

You are 100% correct. Get a stander if you have back issues. I did and it's night and day difference in my back period. I had lumbar surgery and no suspension in the world makes it feel good. That's a fact.

It may very well "beat them all" but that isn't the point in this case. He is in a different situation than most and I'm in his same boat. He has had back surgery! Different animal. This is a matter of physical limitation from here on. You can compare ztr after ztr and it won't matter. It's my reality and it sucks. Get a stander dude.
