Default New seat suggestions?

Hi guys, new here to the forums. I recently just bought my first Harley. 2004 sportster 1200 custom with a bunch of after market chrome. Anyways my problem is I want to sit about 2 inches further back on the seat. I have the forward controls on already but my knees are still bent a little too much. I figured I would see what other seats are out there vs changing the already after market forward controls and possibly handlebars. Does anyone know of a seat that would allow me to sit further back than the one thats on my bike now?

Edit: My wife rides with me at times (until we get her her own!) So I still need room for a passenger.

Both Mustang and Saddleman make really good seats , so I'd look them up through J&P cycles , however I don't know about getting to much extra leg room as a Sportie isn't overly big

I found this seat while looking up mustang seats.

It looks like itll give me the extra room I want. I sent them an email asking for specs about it before I order one.
