    Saw you stuff for sale and someone posted on it pretty recently. Do you still have the luggage rack and would you take $65 for it?

    was looking thru the picture section of the fourms, I see you bought a ultamite seat... How do you like it? I am thinking about one on my 950. I like the position I am in now so dont want it to move me foward... Was that a issue with yours,,, Is it alot more comfy? If you get a chance get back to me if you could ..Thank you Jeff

    Thanks for posting your pic's of the Ultimate seat!
    I had one on my Honda Shadow 750 and loved it, how is it on your V-Star?

    Does the back part of the seat give you a little more lower back support?
    Do you sit up higher or more in?
    Does it push you up a little or is it about the same?
    Thank you,

    I put the new Ultimate Seat on the V Star 1300 Tourer today and went for a 15 mile ride. Wow! What a huge difference, and I'm really glad I spent extra for the back rest. Reviews of the seat said that it sits you up higher and moves you 2" closer to the tank. I just didn't see any of that. In fact, I think I'm actually back a little from the tank. The stock seat would slide you closer to the tank once you started riding, not this seat, you settle right down into it and never move at all. I need to tweek the back rest setting a little, but it is awesome. I created a photo album with pics of the seat side by side with the stock seat. Next test is taking the wife for a ride and getting her feedback. Photos Here
