HI Guys!

I don't post much. This is pretty evident by the fact that when I do post it always starts with I don't post much. Anyway, I digress,

I have here a picture of General Sterling Price, The General is a fine example of a 2000 Aero 1100.

My wife bought him for me When I turned 40, almost 6 years ago.

Since then I have had lots of good times on the General ( Who is not named after Gen. Price, but after Rooster Cogburn's cat in True Grit) And I have longed for better seatage.

So After years of pondering and reading message boards and especially this one I settled on a mustang seat. And I addes studs and a backrest.

All I can say is WOW! if you are thinking about it do it. Not only is it more comfortable but it also raises me up about an inch and that is a good thing,

It also looks good. Changes the appearance of the bike,

I also ordered a nice studded buffalo hide from Chilhowee Motorcycle leather.

The workmanship is excellent. And they are the nicest people to deal with.

This is like getting a new bike!

I'll put some serious miles on it this weekend and see how it shakes out.

I've got the same seat on my '99 Ace (sans backrest). It's great confort-wise and looks good too.
Mine was already on the bike when I bought it, so I really don't have anything to compare it to. I sure wouldn't change it, though.

I had a similar experience. Waited 40,000 miles before finally getting a Corbin for my ST1100. Screw the fact that it looks tons better--the comfort factor alone was more than worth the measly $175 I paid for a secondhand model off ebay. Can't believe I was so silly as to not have done it much sooner. Even if you buy new and pay full-freight, scrap the factory seat yesterday and get something that's anatomically correct.
