My wife had her 500 seat done in memory foam which prompted me to get my Mustang redone also. Got a reshape and added memory foam also.
We stopped in on a recent trip to meet the crew at Mean City Cycles.
Customer service was awesome. Best money we ever spent.

I first tried having my stock seat repadded by Mean City Cycles. They did a good job. Instead of being miserable in 20 minutes, I was now miserable in about 45.

I eventually decided to just go with a new, wider seat and got the Saddlemen's Classic Explorer. Looks great, and I can ride about 2 hours before I need to take a break.

Here's a pic of my bike with it on there (as well as the Pro-Tac driver's backrest):
