New 950 owner from Iowa.

Picked up a low mile 2012 a couple days ago..............

Need a different seat for the wife. Is the Ultimate worth the extra $70 over the Saddleman?

Hi Paul!
Welcome from East Tennessee. Wife and I each have a 950, I have the mustang seat on mine and love it. I recommend shopping around before you an aftermarket seat, check the forum classifieds as well.

Welcome from Houston, Texas. Glad you joined us. My wife loves her Ultimate Seat. On the open road she was good for hours. Might want to look into the backrest also. It's wider and my wife was much more comfortable. Here's a few interesting threads to check out when you get a chance.

Ride often and safe.

seats are like helmets and jackets and boots: one size does not fit all

it all depends on the anatomy of your posterior - what might be perfect for some people could have you sitting on your tailbone

Greetings from a fellow Iowan! Where in Iowa are you? I'm in Cedar Rapids and picked up an 1100 Silverado this Summer.

Welcome from Wisconsin. As for a comfortable seat i am trying to figure out how to mount my recliner. I am thinking then the cat would probably enjoy riding also.
