Two Up Seat

Our 97 750 has what I believe to be a stock seat. I'm on the big side (much bigger than 40 years ago) and the bike is crowded with both my wife and me on it. Is there a seat for a VN750 that's more comfortable for two up riding than the stock?

Thanks,

I have the Mustang seat and extended back rest on mine. The seat is wider and has more padding. I have no problem riding 3-400 miles, even with a bad back. My passenger appreciates the extra back rest, but we are going to add a little extra padding to the top of it for her.

The passenger portion of the Mustang seat is a little higher and more substantial that the stock seat. I am pretty big and there is still plenty of room for a passenger. This was not the case before I changed the seat. It also lets me ride all day without discomfort. I had about a 30 minute max comfort zone before.
