Default It hurts my ass-bone

Hey guys, I have a 2010 Vegas 8-ball. I've had it for a couple years now, but it has always given me a terrible pain in my tail bone. Usually after about an hours riding, it gets very painful.

I bought an air cushion, which has made it slightly better. The trouble is, it still gets sore after a while and the thing looks shit.

Anybody else had this issue? Any suggestions?

Same with me. The Vegas seat isn't very comfortable. I installed a set of hammer V bars which give a slight lean forward which takes the weight of my @rse bone a bit. Still not a long distance tourer though.
Best bet would be to change out the seat or get the stock one re-worked.

Try getting the seat recovered- makes a hell of a difference, it's tailored and shaped to suit your butt, and in the end it's cheaper than buying a new aftermarket seat.

I used to get a dead left leg after an hour and followed by a sore butt- not now, ever!

I actually put my Vegas on the market cos of my sore back.
was gonna upgrade to a CrossRoads cos of its better seating and longer suspension travel.
But after buying an Airhawk R, a Grasshopper backrest, and a Progressive rear shock Ive covered 20,000 kms pain free.
Still wouldnt mind a Crossroads down the line a bit if I got a keen buyer for my Vegas.
Progressive soaks up all but the harshest bumps and bike tracks and holds a line real nice as well

In addition to what others have suggested, have you ever tried bicycle shorts under your jeans?

ButtonIt, you live in a huge city and surely there are saddle customizers there. They will tailor a seat to fit your butt like big hand cupping it. You will be able to have then install heat if you desire and you can choose the cover material and color. I have done that on three bikes with great satisfaction.
BTW, if you (or anybody reading this) are sitting on your wallet, take the damn thing out of your back pocket and never put it there again. Guy's wallets are the source of more back and leg problems than anything else. I put my wallet and phone in my jacket. That way, if I go down, get injured and separated from the bike, they are on me and not way back there in the bike.

2010 Midnight Cherry XR. 7Jurock, Lloydz AF, ATS, AFR tuned VFCIII, IAV, and T-6 and locally repacked pipes = big smiles. SOLD to a dear friend, so it's still in the family."
