How is the stock seat on these two bikes? I know that when I got my 900 I could only stand it for about a month. Is there any improvement in the factory seat?

It is the best stock seat I've had on a bike. I don't know how it is made, but it feels like a gel seat. Nice and wide with plenty of support. Almost as nice as a Miustang seat I had on another bike. The stock seat is also covered with a good, soft leather cover. I think you'll like it.

Which bike are you thinking about?

The Voyager is my first really big bike, but I really like the fit. I'm 5-11, 186lbs, and I do not feel cramped at all (I did feel cramped on the Harley Ultra Classic). Usually the factory setting for the handlebars on bikes is too low for me, so I loosened the riser clamps and rotated the bars up just a little (to where it does not hit the fairing at full turn). It feels just right, and no need for taller risers.

Glad to hear that the seats appear to be a better quality. It's between the Nomad and the Voyager. Once my finances start to look a little better I'll make a decision.

The seat on the Nomad is the most comfortable motorcycle saddle I've ever experienced, including a $900 aftermarket seat for my Goldwing. It's exceptionally comfortable, which is surprising for an OEM seat.

It is very comfortable and I won't be making any changes. After 2000 miles it fits me like a glove and is actually pleasurable to sit on....more comfortable than my easy chair! :lol:

A five hundred mile run to Key West and return the next day left me with no desire to change my stock seat. I believe riding position has a lot to do with how the seat fits you. I sit up straight like in a high back chair.
