Finally got to take a "long" ride yesterday

I've owned my bike for about 3 weeks now and yesterday I finally got a chance to take it for a ride in the mountains. I forgot how fun it is to just get away and be out on a bike. But it did teach me a few things. First off, I NEED A NEW SEAT!!! I bought a gel pad for the stock seat thinking that would help. I guess it helped a little, but not enough. I think I have the flattest ass in the world! Must have been all the spankings I got as a kid, LOL! My back was hurting a little too after being hunched over for so long. That may be just because I haven't ridden in a while, but I may want to get some new risers. Also, the suspension kinda sucks. I hit some bumps on the highway and I felt like I was being bucked off. And I could feel every bump I hit on the road with the front tire. I'll play with the shock adjusters but new shocks may be in my future too.

check out for seat work, Allen is a VTX Cafe member and does great work on the stock seat. Fixed mine.
+++1 from me on this one. I had mine reworked and they are way more comfortable now.. Good Luck
