love the look of the seat on my bike... but for very long rides want a little more comfort without having to change general style. anyone have any input on gel vs foam and makes/models for 900 vulcan.

do you have the model #.... and is it a solo seat or double when you say 2 up?? i checked out many of the mustang seats, but few to none of the solo's fit a vulcan.

Yes, a double seat. (2 up means you ride with 2 people up on the bike). The Vulcan 900 was designed for a 2 person seat. The way it attaches from the factory is under the passenger seat. You are not going to be able to search via Vulcan 900. You will need to search based on the rear fender you have, or look into a custom seat.

Saddleman makes a solo seat for the 900 that I heard was good, but to be honest, I never sat on one to say for myself.

Thanks GRMF. The customi site you sent met to is the first one i found that may be able to offer the style i am looking for. And you make a good point, searching by vulcan wasnt much help since mine is more custom back fender/solo. tx
