Default Passenger seat options

Anyone have recommendations on a pad for the back seat to put on only when I have a passenger? My girl wants a gel pad or something so the back seat will be more comfortable. I do not want to put a larger seat on it though (like Corbin) as I do not like the look.

Yeah butt buddy is about your only option, but if your girl is going to ride all the time you should invest in a better seat, not only is the stock seat hard, it's pretty damn narrow, when she's happy you'll be happy.

Isn't that the truth...

The cool thing is that she doesn't ride with me all of the time because also rides bikes, just not a Fury

I've got a butty buddy and the wife loves it. You can get them with the suction cups for easy on and off.

I've also got a butty buddy, but with my wife riding more I will be upgrading to a 2-up seat and selling it in a month or so if you can hold out.

Just throwing this out for what it's worth: I too wanted a narrow seat or to mod my stock seat. But my gf required a wider and flusher seat. I bought used Mustang seats. I didn't care for the seats being so big. I now only add her seat when she rides. With the Mustang seats, the passenger seats goes on and off within minutes. It also has its own backrest option. After riding my bike for several hours, I can say I still don't like the bulky look, but it's a comfortable seat!

I might very well be able to hold off as it is now just getting pretty cold here in PA lol. Let me know when you want to sell it and we can chat at that point. Thanks!

I did think about that, but I am not a fan of the mustang seats as they are not flush enough for my liking and they push you up a bit. As I am 6'4", a higher seat is the last thing i need lol.
