HELP! I have an 09 Vulvan 900 Classic LT. Just bought it 4 months ago and it just had its 500mi check. It's like new. I love the bike and the more I ride it the more I can,t wait to ride it again. Problem.. The stock seats are killing me. After a couple of hours I'm ready to be off it, plus the studs on the side of the seat chafes my wifes legs. We want to do some touring and my wife likes the looks of the wrap around seats the bigger bikes have like GW. Is there a solution for me besides buying a bigger bike?
I could be wrong, butt, regardless of what anyone else says on this thread, nobody makes a comfortable passenger
seat for the Vulcan Classic LT. I been lookin' for one for over a year and I even tried to modify mine, butt, it didn't help. You have the right idea about finding something like the GW passenger seat, but nobody makes one for our Vulcans. I've been tempted to buy a used GW passenger seat and try to fit it on my VN2000. I just haven't taken the time to do the research.
Now, some folks will say that their passenger is quite happy with the seat they have, butt, some fannys are built different than others or are more sensitive. (like the princess and the pea) My princess needs something better than what I've been able to find.
In the meanwhile, I like riding 1 up, but am hearing more frequent inquiries from my princess about a better seat for riding 2 up.
I am currently using the Airhawk II air cushion and it works well for me. She can tolerate riding with the Airhawk, butt, the longer we go the more painful she gets.
