Default modified seat

Have just completed a 1350 mile tour of Scotland on my Vegas 8 ball and can only criticise the shape of the seat really. The bike was faultless,fitted with topbox and screen (national cycle),I did not suffer the stiff shoulders/neck that I had done with previous bikes but the shape of the seat with the low back meant I was locked into one position. Has anyone modified their seat to increase padding at the rear to slightly flatten it out.

Default seat mod

You have to find someone to help you with it. Aftermarket seats are about as bad. I really think you are better off modifying the one you have with a good upholsterer. I've got a garage full of seats and in a couple of weeks I'm going to a place where the guy does it in one day....won't work for you bc of your location but it can make all the difference; also consider highway pegs

Having my seat redone was one of the first things I did to my JP. Here's a thread with some before & after pics of my seat: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=6173
