and can't wait for it to come. The wifey hates the stock pillion and won't ride with me if the trip takes morn than 30 minutes. I hope this helps. I also picked up passenger floorboards to get rid of the pegs. I am looking at the Mutazu trunk series. I have the rounded hard bags on my other bike and like them. Slowly turning my LT into a dresser to tour.

Oh I'm sure it will help, alright. My wife couldn't take the stock seat either but is eager to ride with me now that we have the Mustang. It made a world of difference here too. Which model did you get?

That's a good price. I bought the exact same seat and the best price that I could find was $417 with free shipping. I didn't check Ebay though.

I first dumped my stock for a Saddlemen. It was better, but not good enough. I came within a hairs breath of getting the Mustang, but opted for the Russell Day Long (like a Lazy Boy on 2 wheels). I do know your wife will deffinately be a much happier passanger on it. I got the driver backrest on mine, but only use it on longer rides. With the fit of the Mustang, I'm sure you won't miss it all that much. Good choice!!!!

Dam you Toymaker- why did you have to be so happy, there goes another $400!:) Just kidding :)glad it was a great purchase, still wish they could deliver a bike with a good saddle. Perhaps they can if you pay $19,000 eh?

Yeah...I wonder that myself. If places like Corbin and Mustang can make a great seat, why can't Kawasaki and Suzuki? I also have a 95 Savage, and it is like riding an ironing board....just a good thing it has a small tank. By the time you need gas, your butt gives out.
