Look for a seat cushion

I am looking for a seat cushion for my bike. It is a 95' Vulcan. Need something that adds a little bit more comfort on long rides. Does anybody know a good place to get one without breaking the bank? Thanks

Depends on what you are looking for. If the stock seat is pretty good consider adding a gel pad to it or memory foam. If you want a completely different seat some guys go with the 900 seat and say its great.

Before Bike Week my wife bought a Pro Pad from Cycle Gear. You can find them cheaper online I'm sure. She said she felt like she could ride all day on that thing.

I'm using a Rhino Medium cruiser air seat pad and as they advertises it about doubles the distance before I begin to feel my butt. I've had mine for 2 years and generally am happy with it. Pretty good but @ about $100 pricy. Another option a lot of the guys here like is having Spencer in FL ( http://greatdaytoride.com/FAQ.html ) re-foam your seat with his special foam padding (about $140 plus shipping)

[/SIGPIC][/SIGPIC] The mini-skirt is a very functional article of clothing. With it a woman can run much faster; and because of it she may have too.

She got the Medium Fabric Gel Pro Pad, the second on the top at this page.
