Also, how is the stock seat. The problem with test rides is almost anything is comfortable for a half hour. So seeking your input. Thanks.
I did a 600 mile weekend ride on a 13 Judge (in OZ you get a bike for 2 days, unlimited miles and $200 to stay in a Best Western hotel)
Riders seat I found okay but not as good as my Vegas and my pillion passenger had bruises on her arse from the back seat (Theres some lousy roads here tho)
Bars could do with pullbacks a few inches, a set of Vegas bars would do the trick also Vegas pegs are a couple inches further forward.
Those points have been addressed on the 14 Judge so I hear.
Or you could get a tuff set of Burleigh Bars like mine in black powdercoated 304 stainless, check my pix.
So pullbacks, forward pegs, and the seat is fine, get it breathing right as well and you'll be laughing
