The Vegas may have to go if I can't find a comfortable passenger seat for my wife. Unfortunately there just isn't many options for the Vegas. I have the stock passenger seat and just sold a Mustang touring driver and passenger seat. She liked the Mustang but I hated it. It was too hard and had me sitting too far back. Im 5'6". Any ideas? I have a passenger back rest and luggage rack but the stock seat she says is like sitting on a log. She wants something flatter and softer.
I really like my bike and don't want to have to get rid of it but I want my wife to feel safe and be comfortable when she rides.
I think I got it though ebay from 'moto-world of el-cajon'
It's the Victory brand 'touring' seat.
We generally put in some big days on the bike and over some adverse roads ( I do have the Progressive shock as well)
The Victory brand backrest bolts to it underneath as does the bracket for my Grasshopper backrest.
The whole shebang can be off and solo in ten minutes if need be.
(not that it ever is)
Paulie from Honda East Toledo may even be able to do a better price than motoworld...I forget what I paid but it was money well spent and lots cheaper than buying direct off Victory in Australia .
I had the same issues with the Mustang driver seat, but my passengers loved the Mustang seat. So, I just use the stock front seat for me, and kept the Mustang rear seat with backrest on the bike. Works like a charm.
You could do what I did, in addition having a custom sit made for my Vegas 8 Ball...I bought a BMW R1150RT for long touring runs. And kept my Victory for when I ride alone or short rides two-up. Little more than a new seat but works great!
