Congrats and welcome! That is a sweet ride...I like the color! Regarding your seat question....I think the stock seat is really pretty good. I had no complaints. I did however replace it with a Victory touring seat. It's a little cushier and is heated to boot! I routinely go on 300-500 mile rides and my ass feels fine after....
