Twin Twins as of July 2018

Word on the street is the stock "gun slinger" seat is awesome to look at but leaves the tail bone a little sore after a few miles.
I could not agree more.

Word on the street is Mustang seats are the bomb. Anyone upgrade to this seat? (NOTE: This is not my bike...but it does have the Mustang)

You can't go wrong with a mustang seat. Our shadows both have mustang seats.

The original seat is good for 20mins!

Mustang is worlds apart in comfort.

I have both the Mustang Daytripper and 2 piece Wide Touring (but use it as a solo with a rear rack) and I find it the most comfortable of the two.

Like @DoberMan said, 20 mins in the stock saddle then I need a break. With the Mustang, Iím good until the gas needs a top up.

Mustang seats are comfy.

Another option is to design yourself a Corbin Gunslinger:

I upgraded to a wide touring Mustang on my VT750DC, and felt like I sat down IN the bike more, as well as having more lower back support, so a ride that normally had me in pain by 40-50 miles could last all day and over 400 miles with NO pain! I wish I had one on my new bike. I found my Mustang on eBay for about $300, which is WAY less than new ($500-800), and if you look, you can probably find a similar deal. They are WELL worth it, though! I've heard that Corbins can be comfy AFTER they get "adjusted" to your shape, but feel like a board until then, though Mustangs are perfect right out of the box. It's your backside and your choice, but I'd get another Mustang in a heartbeat, IF I could afford one, though I might also get the removable driver backrest, too.
