Default Seat options

Looking for a possible replacement of stock seat? Any recommendations for solo seat? Any one had the factory seat reworked by companies such as Mean City Cycles?

I bought an Airhawk R to supplement the stock seat on my 2010 Vegas and its great, rode another 700 kms Sunday yesterday and not a problem.. Progressive shock a big improvement to as with Grasshopper backrest I use when riding solo.

Yeah sorry, my original reply was made without looking at the section!..its morning here in Oz and only had one coffee!
Ive edited my original as soon as I spotted my oversight!
Highball-Vegas...same seat, my solution works well but may not suit you...Airhawk R is great when used with minimal air but at the price ya cant just leave it in yr bike and walk off, mine gets shoved in my helmet with my gloves if Im away from my bike.
That Progessive Shocky is worlds apart from the stock one too.

I'm a believer in going to seat customizers. That way, you get your saddle contoured to YOUR butt and your butt only, not some one size maybe fits all mail order saddle. Please help us to help you by completing your profile and a signature. If we knew where you live and what you ride, we could be more specific. Cheers and welcome.

+1 on the seat customizing. No two asses are the same so why not get a seat built for your ass.

Bartcanoe I'm not sure where your located or if your close to a Corbin Seat store/ location. Corbin has a ride-in service that is awesome. I'm about 2-1/2 hours from their Hollister, CA plant and made an appointment to have a seat customize a seat for me two-years ago. They shape the seat/ foam of the seat until your happy (test ride with the seat on your bike). Then pick the material, stitching and piping if wanted...the seat is finished as you wait and you ride home with the new seat installed. Anyway this was two years ago...my wife just did not feel comfort on the back...always sliding forward. So I called Corbin three weeks ago and they said make an appointment to come they'll make any adjustments at no cost unless I need a new cover.
We went down this weekend they added foam to the center making more of saddle for her and widen the seat to give her more support. They talked her about what to change, tested adjustments, did the rework at no cost...I did not need a receipt or proof of purchase (the seat is marked) and my wife is happy with the ride.
I would recommend to getting a Corbin seat...quality and service that is very hard to find these days.

I would not send a sick dog to Corbin. I had such grievous dealings with those a-holes that I will never go there again and will warn others to stay away. I even write a letter (yeah on paper) to Mike Corbin telling about how his people screwed me and stuck me with the seat from hell and he never replied. Caveat Emptor my friend. That got me going to my local customizer and I have never looked back.

Ricz did you use the ride-in service or ordered the seat and have it shipped?
