Hi Kruser,

if you are getting a saw bum on longer rides try a Air hawke seat about 250
bucks my wife had one when we rode to melbourne and back to Perth.

Or a cheaper way is to get a pair of lycra push bike riding pants with the
padded back side wear under your riding pants their are differant size padding.

I wore a pair from Perth to Bunderberg in QLD and back and they were great.you cant see them under your riding pants arond 30 bucks. not bad

Hi Nomad,

In our last ride, I met a guy who has it and he told me not to get it because it slides arond in corners.

Do you experience the same thing?

Hi kruser
Had no problem with airhawk sliding around as they come with straps that fit
under the seat Airhawk will give you a 60 day free trial.
www.airhawkguy.com.au

Or you can try the bike pants they are pretty good as well

Does anyone know anything about saddleman seats? if they are any good.
They have a solo quiet cheap from the States. I guess not so cheap though if you cant sit on it for long and end up having to bu a mustang anyway.

The best deal I can find on the Mustang Seat for the VN 900 is not from Mustang direct but from this link:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270355290003&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:MOTORS:1123

$369.98 USD plus shipping of $97.40 USD. Total $467.38, Using an exchange rate of 1 USD = 1.4406 AUD the Aussie cost would be about $673.00. Not too bad for a long term solution.

Ed, Mustang seats are bloody unreal but if ya gunna spend the coin go the extra and get the backrest i guarantee you that it will be the best purchase you ever make. Corbin make some great seats but dont buy direct their service is crap and as for saddlemen i have no idea other than comments from others that they are a good seat bbut not as good as the mustang

Harry I got a saddleman single seat since I saw you last. 250 from the US
No more sore ass issues, it makes you see just how bad the stock seat is.
I think I will get the mustang double seat though for when the radio wants to join

Well guys after much delay my Mustang Wide Tourer with backrest
has finally arrived. Only got 20k's on it today but even that felt awesome.
Sits me a little further back than i'm used too but that position seems
more comfortable. Will give a better report once i've been on a longer
ride

Oh and pics will follow
