Default Cross Country Aftermarket Seats

I'm just looking for some feedback on which aftermarket seats everyone likes the best.

I find on my stock CC seat, after about 80 miles my butt is starting to really get sore. It surprises me because on my stock Vegas seat I was able to go close to 300 miles with virtually no butt pain. I think it's just the position on the CC. I sit on a different part of my butt and it gets sore much faster...

So that said, i'm looking for aftermarket seats and just wonder what everyone else's opinions are on the options. The one issue I do have going against me is my wife absolutely does not want me to change seats. She is totally in love with the stock passenger pad on the CC. She can go hundreds of miles totally comfortably, so I obviously need to find something she will also be comfy on.

Any help and feedback is appreciated, thank you.

Many other threads on this exact issue. "Search" will provide you with a lot of info to look at.
I have an Ultimate seat on order, mainly due to the positive comments I read here. Look forward to receiving it.

You have two choices. Ultimate or Corbin. Both have good and bad reviews, not unexpected. Ultimate doeasn't offer heat and has done all they could to run me off as a customer. It seems I am the exception, bit they manged to lose my business for good.
The Corbin should be here tomorrow, so I hope it solve the problems we were looking for it too.

You have more than two choices, Ultimate, Corbin, Russell Day Long,

Just to name a few. I have no experience with any of them except Corbin and I don't like them.

Seats are really a personal thing. What works for one is horrible for the next. I had a Russell day long on my wing (I couldn't go 50 miles on the stock). It took them four tries to make it work for me and it was never great but soo much better than stock. The fit wasn't the greatest at the tank and the seat didn't last but 50,000 miles before it started coming apart.

The xct seat is the first stock seat I've ever had that worked for me. I have gone over 800 miles in temps between 106- 117 with no issue.

Personally Diamond (hartco) is the best seat I ever owned and it was on my GL1800, but they don't make one for the Vic. I have an Ultimate ordered, but not real confident it will work as it is an off the shelf seat. For me, the stocker sux, 50-60 miles max and I hurt. We'll see when the Ultimate gets here. I went through several seats trying to get the right one on the wing.

It seems like every version of a Cross Bike has it's own "different" seat with respect to foam firmness and density? True?

Corbin SUCKS! Just Google "corbin customer service" and read all the different threads on message boards on all different bikes makes about how bad Corbin treats their customers once they get their money from them. I wouldn't piss on Corbin if he was on fire. I've been riding and wrenching on my own bikes since I was 12 years old. I questioned them on a seat for my VTX and they told me "You must be putting the seat on wrong"

It's your money, but I wouldn't give them a penny

I wish Mustang would get off their lazy asses and make one for the XC. I mean, why be behind the curve still sucking up to HD owners? Get your R&D dept to wake the F up and smell the roses before you get left in the dust by others.
