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.
