I had my seat and the passenger seat redone at Mean City and the seats are a lot better but after doing 225 miles on Friday my butt hurt. So what are you guy's doing to help your butt, is there anything like gel pads or sheepskins that might help??????

Sheep skin. Did 570, 758, NH to PA, and 2-430 days back to back with no issues. Rain and shine.

Vinyl is plastic. Plastic makes ass sweat.

Ever see a sweaty sheep? Lol

another option would be an air hawk with neoprene.
+1 I also inflate it more then they tell you, really helps. So far, 600 miles one day.

In my limited experience I would have to say comfort is directly related to how much contact your cheeks have with the seat. The stock seat on my 13 FXDC was simply barbaric. I swear only my ass bones actually touched the seat. I swapped out to a HD tall boy seat, and it actually fits my butt. Previously I was done after about an hour if many stops weren't in the mix. Now I can ride ALL day with no discomfort. Last month I rode the Blue Ridge and Skyline drive BOTH ways from light till dark each day with very few stops. My butt didn't hurt, but I was wiped out mentally from the ride. Not like floating down the slab for 500 miles.

Still riding on the Air Zepp seat on the Ultra. I've done a few 1k days and more days than I care to remember over 500 miles. At the end of a long day, your ass is gonna hurt a bit no matter what kind of cushion you provide. Get off occasionally and walk a few yards and stretch out to get the blood flowing again. It do help a lot.

Ask Stangs. He has the sheepdog on his. Looks like eff, but he loves it. Not sure how he can be so vain about every detail on that beauty and then throw all caution to the wind and put a mid-70's Playboy crotch shot on for a seat, but to each his own.

Well, now I know for the next Collision to text stangs and tell him the cops are stealing his seat wookie. See how fast he runs out of his hotel room for that.

Get your story straight. It's back to stock.... and it only took two times.

"Seat wookie" is going in the Forum Gloss.
