I have the tomahawk one on my vegas should be the same sits higher than the vic in fact I even cut it down a couple inches. If you go that route make sure you double check the set screws and use some Loctite. Mine came out going over a track luckily someone behind me grabbed it. New loctited set screws and a couple dabs of silicone and its not going anywhere.

I use the Grasshopper for me, and the Victory one for my passenger, it's not as if she leans back on it anyway, as shes always in light contact with me, it's really just for security and somewhere to hang a spare helmet when out cruising solo.

Default Corbin

I'm very happy with the Corbin Hollywood Solo seat and backrest (note they have a "dual tour" as well to accommodate two). I know it's not the cheapest, but I've been happy with the quality and ride comfort. The corbin seat is "hard", not mushy foam, but I find the support to be excellent.

You may need to move up to an XC if she's not happy,
Or leave her at home.
Airhawk make excellent segmented air cushions, great for a 500 mile day.

I have the regular Victory one on my Gunner passenger seat. I rarely take a passenger so I do not care if it is not perfect for them. That being said if you want something other than the factory butt scratcher maybe look at getting a sissy bar with a pad?

Get the seat redone in supracor and you probably won't get any more of that. You probably don't need more padding, you just need better padding. When I had my seat done last year, it went from my butt and low back telling me when I needed to stop to my knees doing it.

The material is great. It doesn't get hard in the cold and it dampens the vibration quite a bit.

When I get my Victory, probably one of the first things I'm going to do is have the seat redone.
