Very nice M50, Trent.

Mustang is comfortable, Ultimate is also very comfortable. Makes those long rides easier, doesn't it?

I didn't really have a problem with the stock seat, but the pillion pad didn't cut it. The switch to a Mustang Touring seat is so that the gf would be comfortable on the back of the bike.

I like the hard cases on your bike. Plan on getting some Tsukayu Coner bags, but I gotta save up first.

I know what you mean about the passenger seat. That's how I knew the difference between stock and aftermarket - when riding as a passenger. That extra padding makes all the difference.

My hard cases were on the bike when I bought it. They are Champion Patriot. They hold allot of stuff. The trunk can hold 2 helmets. They are great for shopping and traveling.

But they are expensive. I looked mine up, and they were around $1000. The previous owner had them painted by Champion to match the bike.

But then, there's nothing cheap about a motorcycle, is there?

That's the seat I ride on my Phantom, Bright... comfy, isn't it? And that backrest is worth the price of the seat.
IF there is a good seat builder in your area, maybe try that, OP'r. Some guys do a good job; some, not so much. The Mustang, with backrest, studded is about 700.00, but I'd pay it again... ...grins...
My local seat guy isn't worth the time... I'm NOT lucky that way....

Yeah, I really like my seat. Couldn't believe how comfortable it was till I took that first ride. I've rode on Ultimate seats, though, and I like them better. I think they're thicker. Either way, an aftermarket seat is the way to go.
