UBB w/ Back rest. The back rest might well be the most important part on any seat.

Sam/NDAna #15542 IB#38401 '04 1800 C, HID, Audiovox Cruise, 2xDarkSide & enough other stuff to keep me comfortable. 4400 lumen H4 LED headlights available NDs.HIDs@gmail.com "Can you see me now?" For DarkSide info go here http://mcdarksiders.forumotion.com

I have Ultimate big boy seats with backrests and passenger arm rests. Very comfortable on long rides. Wife loves the arm rests

Ride safe, ride often and keep the shiny side up. 08 1800T Spec.3[SIGPIC][/SIGPIC]

I have the Mustang, that I bought off this web site. I love it. There are lots to choose from any event coming up in your area so you could check out different seats.

Ultimate Low Rider with backrests.

Opinion: mostly comfortable especially with driver backrest. The seat pushes me too far forward and puts my junk on the tank.

Every time one of these seat threads pop up I get just a little miffed at Honda.

Do you guys realize if it weren't for folks like Alan and his team at Mean City Cycles, either our attics, or landfills across the country would be dotted with stock VTX seats.

The simple fact is when Honda designed, manufactured, and test rode the VTX line of cycles, they didn't have either a clue, or a care about making a decent seat for their paying customers. (You would think at least ONE engineer at Honda would have stood up in a meeting and said "OK guys, the seat needs to be comfortable in case the customer decides to go for a ride further than the corner market"

I have ridden HD's and Vic's and they prove with their stock seats just how ridiculous Honda was concerning M/C seats.

The first time I went on a lengthy ride on my stock seat was a 160 miler. When I stopped after 80 miles, it wasn't because I wanted to. My butt hurt so bad I could have cried.
MCC after that, and the difference is hard to put into words.

Rode it for several thousand miles in comfort and finally sold it to a fellow X'er who loved it also. (BTW, it was the double decker memory foam)

I now have a Ultimate 4 pc and it is a comfortable setup also.

MCC rocks, and Honda should be ashamed of their selves.

Now I know there are some of you guys who say " the stock Honda seats are fine!" and my hat goes off to each of you............................................... ........


So I can scratch my head.

I'll step down now.

It's not only Honda --- with the exception of my '89 Yamaha Venture I have never had a stock seat that was comfortable on any bike I had, that includes 2 Honda's, Yamaha V-Star, HD, and 2 Suzuki's. None of the manufacturers seem to be able to make a comfortable stock seat.
