Kinda new member, kinda old rider. Bought a 2005 V-Star last year. Had not ridden a bike since 1980 or so. Being a full figured kinda fellow I don't much care for the original seats. Wife and I can only manage 150 miles a day. Kinda disappointed, I practiced sitting most of th winter.
Location: rainy side of washington state now reside in Blackfoot,Idaho
Welcome fellow star rider or should I say star sitter.lol I think that's the biggest issue with a star. Do some surfin there are lots of seats out there that are better. It depends on your wallet size. I'm a tight arse I've modified my stock seat 3 times and it still doesn't feel right. Just ordered a gel pad the other night to give it a try. Good luck
