Sorry, haven't been here for a while...ANY seat is better than the stock seat! If you can handle 1.5 hours on the stocker, a Mustang would be a great upgrade, and the Ultimate even better.

I'm gonna hit the highway like a battering ram, on a silver-black PHANTOM bike!

Iím not sure what the OP has done unless I missed it when reading through.
Anyway, Iíve never had any luck with a stock seat except on a Goldwing and Ultra Classic.
Iíve used corbin, mustang and ultimate.
Although the corbin and mustang were both much better than the stock seat, I still got numb bum pretty bad.
With the Ultimate low rider without backrest I can literally do 9 hour days in comfort. For me itís the best seat Iíve ever ridden on.
Iím only 5í8Ē so the low rider works for me but I have a friend who is 6í and about 300 lbs. He said my lowrider made him feel like his balls were up on the gas tank.
Anyway, my votes for the Ultimate seat.

I haven't done anything yet, but have absorbed some useful takes, including yours (thanks)! My goal is to get something over the winter, and I also now know I don't have to shy away from a used seat for an R or T for my S.

The correct amount of motorcycles to own is always N+1, N being the current number you own.

Im 5'8" and have a mustang with a backrest that ive put 80k miles in. I tried a saddelman seat and hated it. Mustang was the perfect fit for me, and no complaints from her on the back
