Question Question for Zach Ness Vegas owners

Hey folks. Kingpin rider here with a question for your Zach Ness Vegas owners.

This weekend I happened to stop by my local dealer when they were doing the weekend test ride ("ride one and you'll own one") event. had the opportunity to sit on a Ness Vegas, but didn't ride it. Seat seems VERY comfortable, and it looks nice to boot.

Can some of you Ness folks chime in and let me know how (un?)comfortable you find the seat on longer rides? Does the support collapse or does it stay comfortable with a full day in the saddle?

Thanks

Hi Ash,

The seat is very comfortable and after a 200 mile round trip (the furthest I have been in a single day) it still holds support and comfort very well. I get very little "bikers a*se" with this motorcycle compared to other bikes I have owned.

When I sit on a regular/8-Ball Vegas the seat seems tougher and stiffer by comparison and feels like it needs breaking in a little. Out of the crate the Ness seat feels as though it has been with you a long time already. It also feels a little narrower and lower (I'm 5'7") which for me is great so I never get off the bike walking like John Wayne

The pattern on the seat also means your behind stays where you put it, so you move around less compared with the smooth stock seat I am guessing.

Regards

Dannae

Dannae, that was super helpful! Thank you!!

One of the first things I noticed when I sat on the ZNess vegas was how comfortable the seat profile was. The 8-ball seat has some sharper corners to it that don't feel as well thought out. Obviously the ness seat looks more attractive too, but I was concerned about foam collapse because the seat feels plush. Sometimes that canbe good for short rides but terrible for longer ones. Glad to hear you can put the miles down and still be comfortable- I'm going to go order one!

Beautiful ride, by the way. I really like the paint texture and contrast on the ness vegas.

Thanks Ash

I've never come across the option to buy the seat here in the UK, but I sure hope you can because you won't regret it

yes there is a site I buy OEM vic parts from very easily- they do it by fiche so you know you are getting the right part!

I just realized our avatar pics look eerily similar; good taste!
