Hi everyone,

Recently bought a new 950t after having my last bike, a Yamaha 1200 Venture, since 1985. Big difference without a full fairing but I'm getting used to it.

I've already replaced the seats with one from Ultimate Seats and it's made a big difference already, now I've got a set of risers on the way and I should be ready for Spring/Summer in Massachusetts.

Welcome from where ever i may be

Hope you plan on adding some pics soon. Some of us get confused & bored if we don't get to look at pictures of motorcycle stuff every now and again

Thanks for the welcome, everyone.

I'll take some shots of the seat and upload them soon. The seat certainly looks good on the bike. The stock seat would start bothering me in as little as 20 miles so I'm hoping all I spent on the Ultimate was worth it. So far I've only gone about 50 miles at one time and the Ultimate still feels good.
