I bought my 2004 1300S in April after riding A Spyder RT and then a Goldwing 1800 for the past 3 years.
3 things struck me right away:
1. The vibration of the VTX. It felt extreme to me but after reading on the forum it appears to be normal
2. Regardless of where I set the rear shocks, I got a real jolt whenever I went over a bump
3. The stock seat sucks for me
The first thing I did was order an Ultimate Lowrider solo seat as my wife doesnít ride on the back any more. I didnít order a backrest but the seat comes with the hardware built into the seat if I ever want to add it.
In my opinion the seat has the proper name. I can now ride all day with absolutely no discomfort. Also, I now get less vibration through the seat and I donít get the severe jolt when I go over bumps.
But yes, the bike vibrates.
