You will find that the longer your rear is on it on rides. The better it will feel.
As it conforms to the pressure contact points.
When first told tome I didn't believe it until my first all day'er.

Good buy in my books

I put a mustang seat on my raider for the wife and now one on the vaquero for us both. I'v had no complants with either.

Only a motorcycle rider knows why a dog sticks he head out the car window. Enjoy life.

Thanks for the Input

Appreciate the comments, rode about 130 miles before work today and it was incredible!! The second benefit of the new seat was it moved my short a&* forward enough that I don't need to get the 5" risers, really did myself some justice with this seat and i Picked it up on Ebay from a dealer in Florida for $225, driver and passenger. I have a set of stock seats on ebay if anyone is interested if it does'nt sell. Thanks again.

$225 for both??!! Wow, what a score. Nice work finding that deal. Yep, as everyone else has said it is a night and day difference and really helps the under 6' tall fellers like me The chrome studs are a nice feature, too.

Sure glad I read this, since I need to move my fat !@#$% back about 3", guess I can eliminate mustang seats from my Christmas list.

You know, you can drop the rear of the bike two inches without having to modify the mustang....
