I was looking at getting a new seat for my VStar but the prices kept me away too. I tried a gel pad but it really didn't help much. I did do a lot of research on them and I came the conclusion that Ultimate would fit my needs best. Mustangs are nice, and a lot of people love them but I heard they move you forward a bit and I didn't want to be any further forward than stock. Ultimate seats maintain the stock position and have excellent reviews. I didn't have the opportunity to try either of them though, so take this for what it is.
The Nomad has stock seats on it and I've ridden for hours without as much discomfort as I'd get in 45 minutes on the VStar. Yes I have to raise up and adjust after a couple of hours, but it's nothing like the stock Yammie seat. My wife is happy with the passenger seat too. I'm not going to bother upgrading them.
