Had one trip just over 150 miles and few stops. No problems with the stock seat....bar was a tad low.....since then I've adjusted the bar up and had several 80 to 100 mile jaunts and things were really comfortable for me. I'm 6' 2" and 245 lb.....long legs and arms and the riding position on this bike seem great.....somewhere down the road I may have a "Gel Pad" installed in the stock seat....that will improve long haul capability.
This pass weekend i put close to 370 miles on it for me being 6ft 4 in at about 270 i had no problems with the bike as far as confort and such i would also have to agree this is one of the best stock seats i have had not sure if that helps
Thanks for the reply's guys. I'm getting real close to pulling the trigger and wanted to make sure it would be good for trips to the beach and mountains. I'm 6'3" and just under 300lbs. A big boy no doubt, but that's why I'm looking at big metric bikes. Went to a bike show and found the HDs I liked looked like toys under me. No disrespect, I love Harleys, but I love all bikes. For the style, comfort, power, and size I'm looking for it seems the 109 will fit the bill perfectly.
