Hello everyone, I'm from WV and I'm 19 years old. I am wanting to buy a 2014 Vulcan 900 Custom and I wondered if it does well on long distance rides?

Bike will outperform the rider! I have a 2009 LT Classic and it is one smooth ride. Mine has windshield though for long rides. Seat sucks, get's your butt numb. I bought beads to go over the seat and seems to work. Perhaps they have changed the seat in 5 years. Seat was my ONLY complaint, but knew it before I bought it according to the reviews. Buy the bike! You will love it!

Welcome from South Texas Ben. You know texasgrape you can change the seat. I'm about to pull the trigger on a mustang seat.

I installed a Willie and Max solo seat, a fender rack and two sleek hardbags using EasyBrackets so there is no mounting hardware visible when the bags are off. A windshield with quick release and I can go from cruiser to tourer in 30 sec. I find the bike great on long rides, although others here will complain about the gearing and corresponding vibration.

A big deciding factor for me was the Mustang looked like a solo seat + 20%. In my opinion, it has an oddball seat extension to cover the mounting bracket. The Willie and Max accomplished this without adding a tail on the seat. Comfort is great for me, but I only weigh 145 lbs so I'm not giving the seat much of a workout.
