Default My new Vegas touring seat

Looks good but I haven't had a chance to give it a try. Feels like it sits lower and back a little but not real sure yet.
Here is where I bought it.

Original on the right.

Looks good. Let us know what your butt had to say once you ride it.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Yeah, it's more defined - the shape looks more purposeful than the original, and I can see more padding at the rear.

Only put down 50 miles today but it feels like I'm sitting on a pillow.

That seat looks good. I was at the upholstery shop last Tuesday and I'm taking my seat in on Monday for some reshaping and repadding.

If it's the stock seat it can use some padding if you like long rides. I have one planned in a couple weeks that be around 525 miles. That will test the new seat.

Yep it is the stock seat. I'll have the pictures of your seat as an example when I go in.

That looks nice! Question, I just purchased a 2008 Vegas 8 Ball, are all "Vegas" seats interchangeable? As in, will a seat advertised to fit a Vegas Kingpin, also fit a Vegas 8 Ball?

Please Let us know how the upcoming long trip goes, I was just thinking about sending my seat off to mean city cycles to have memory foam added to it, the cost of the memory foam and shipping is about the same as you paid for that seat.
