Default New Victory Vegas 8 Ball Owner

Hello everyone,

Just purchased a 2013 Victory Vegas 8 ball 2 days ago with 2400 miles. Love the bike, it's amazing!
I did have a couple questions:

1. The owners manual recommends replacing the fork oil every 15000 miles or every 2 years. Do any of you have older bikes that have less than 15,000 miles and did you replace the fork oil yet?

2. I'm planning to ride 2up but currently have the single seat. The flame predator seat from victoryonly caught my eye. Do you recommend any certain seat brand for comfort?

You can't believe all the propaganda in the owners book. They have you going to dealer changing parts that don't need it like the belt its good for 80 thousand.
I haven't changed fork oil on my 08 vision with 50K on it. Thinking spring I will.
