Continuing the aftermarket seat discussion, if after you ride the stock seat for a while and are still not comfortable there are several options that you can do a search on custom seats here and most likely get more information than you ever wished for! Bill or Ron Mayer, Corbin, Russell and More.. That said. If you are a bigger guy it seems the best solution may be the Russell Day-Long with the "spring wings", and the others offer different solutions to comfort that you may find right for you. You can also consider a bead rider, jel cover, or air cover as an upgrade to the stock seat that may give you just the right fit, or a change now and again for that longer ride. In any case have fun, get comfortable and you will love the ride!!
