I just purchased a Victory Kingpin and took my lady on a ride - good for me and bad for her.

The passenger seat was really uncomfortable and since we found this out on the road I was unable to do anything other then by gel pads etc and nothing worked.

I want to most comfortable seat available for her - I had Ultimate Seats for my last bike but they do not make them for the victory.

any and all suggestions would be helpful
Thanks

Crzn,
I have a 2007 Kingpin with a Mustang seat, and my wife really likes it. I used to have a VStar with a stock seat, and the Mustang is about 75% wider for the passenger. We have taken a couple of 100+ mile rides, and she hasn't complained. I have also heard that the Corbin seats are nice as well, but I only have experience with the Mustang. Hope this helps.

Amen Brother. When the boss ain't happy, nobody's happy. You might want to try ebay or craigslist for a used seat to keep costs down. These seats aren't cheap.
Good luck,
Rob

RE: Seat

Lots of options. I had the stock seat customized. For me this was over $300 cheaper. I had the stock pans redone by a local seat customizer. If you can find someone locally this could be the best and cheapest option. See the Show off your Kingpin thread page 7 for my seat. I have a different sissy bar now. The difference between the Mustang seat with a passenger backrest and my custom seat with a sissy bar was still well over a $200 savings (@$550 vs $750). My wife says the passenger seat is way more comfortable now. There are a lot of other options if you do searches. I am surprised Diamond hasn't zinged you about using the search functionality yet!cheers

Does she really hate the seat, or does she hate not having a backrest? You can add a backrest and luggage rack to the stock seat for short money.
