The 800s a great bike, I haven't had mine too long but I've ordered a Mustang saddle to start and we'll take it from there. Take care.

I've only heard good things about the Mustang seat. I'm getting the solo as I don't see me ever carrying a passenger. I'm a new rider at 63 and my wife is way too smart to ever ride with me.

Welcome to the site .

I ride an 800 also, it's not about what you ride it's about "The Ride".

BTW if your wife is so smart why did she marry you ? :lol:

I just picked up my 2004 800 Classic on Friday night. I had the 2002 Nomad 1500 a while back and this one is just as nice. The power is incredible and so far I love it. I got the blue color, and I had them put the windshield and kuryakn grips on for me. So far I like it a lot. Can't wait to get through the break-in period so I can really see what she's got.

Duffy,
I just bought that seat for my 800A about 4 months ago. I've only put about 200 miles on my bike since, but the Mustang seat is far better than the stock one was on my bike. I bought my seat from allgear.net for $346. Saved a few bucks, and they even sent me a free shirt. You might want to check them out too.

New guy to the forum just found it , got a 02 800a with a few mods these bikes are a hoot to ride in the twisties , also for anyone interested I have the corbin gunfighter with the removable drivers backrest and it's a comfortable improvement over stock which sucks. Dwaine
ps if anyone wants to know about some of the performance mods iv'e done just ask.
