Default Touring seat

Looking through the latest online victory accessory catalogue came across a touring seat which looks quite good as the low seat on my 8 ball vegas is not that good. Has anybody taken the plunge on one of these?

not surprising,Victory need to seriously look at the accessory side of their business,it must be hurting them financially to lose out on aftermarket sales but they only have themselves to blame with the ludicrous prices they ask for the stuff (panniers for 8 ball around the 1000 mark,laughable).

I bought the touring seat for my hammer 8-ball. And I love it! Bought it off eBay for 550.

Default Corbin

I went with a Corbin touring seat on my 2011 Vegas 8-Ball for less than the Victory one and it is perfect. You get to customize every last detail and I have been on some 8+ hour rides with no pain.
