Places to try seats
 
Hi everyone. I was looking to see if anyone in the northern MA or southern NH where you can actually sit on different seats and try to find one that fits you best. No sure if such a place even exisits, but if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. Thanks

Even if find a place that has seats, they most likely wouldn't have one for your bike. Word of mouth and other reviews are about the best you could do. What exactly are you looking for in a seat?

I guess I am not exactly sure. My issue is after riding for maybe 30 min, my lower back will start to hurt and my tailbone even seems to go numb. Not sure if that is something a different style seat would help or if it is something that I will eventually get used to

Mustang seats are great for your problem. Especially if you get a driver backrest.

Check out motorcycles of manchester in foxboro, ma. They have about 500 used bikes at all different custom levels. Some factory, some aftermarket. The manchester, nh doesn't seem to have nearly the amount of used bikes.

I have a stock o my bike and it too makes my butt hurt after so long, My second bike which I sold last year had a mustang, Although a different bike but that thing was comfy without a second thought. Gotta get one for my shadow at some point.

go to any bike show in the area Like Laconia or Americade or even small regional shows, you can try then if the vendors are there.
