Outstanding! I put the seat on and drove 1200 miles in a weekend. The seat pad itself will need a few miles to get broken in, and then is super comfortable. The rear pad is a lot wider than stock, and my wife was sure happy. Well, her butt was still sore, but it would have been LOTS worse. Now, for the best part, the adjustable driver backrest was MONEY!!! I was not sore at all from this seat! No stiff muscles or anything. I could put this pad in the lower back, or put it down right against my tailbone. It could adjust (recline?) about 4", so I could lean back a little, or sit straight up. Being able to change positions every 20 or 30 minutes was extremely beneficial. Install was very easy. It is very sturdy. Overall, a really good seat. Great addition to the bike. Update: 30 April '07 I love this seat. I just went on another long trip and no fatigue at all. The back rest is key. The driver seat is broken in well and I can ride this bike all day long. Update: Another trip in June '07. The seat is outstanding. So comfortable. I first had this seat on a Honda Shadow 1100 Spirit. I sold the bike, and sold the seat separately. I now have a VTX 1800. I bought this seat for the new bike and love it! A lot of people complain about the price. First, you won't find a good seat for cheap. Second, shop around. You'll see this seat for over $600, but you can find it for around $550, and that's the seat with studs, backrest, and back seat.
