Medium Cruiser fits perfect. Very comfy. Highly recommend for longer rides!

+1 for Airhawk Medium. There are differences between Airhawks based on design and materials. Start your homework here...

Best mod for the seat. No need to buy an expensive aftermarket; just get an airhawk and you'll be very pleased.

Just to throw in another point of view, I had a medium and it fit well and was comfortable, however I sent mine back because it was so HOT! On warm days it roasted my boys and backside. YMMV

I tried three different versions. Like the AirHawk R best, by far.
Use it all the time.

I used my new Airhawk (the more expensive one) on my ride around Lake Superior. It really made the V much more comfortable. It even compensated for the crumby rear suspension. [I have a Corbin seat, very firm.] It rides cooler too.

One trade off though - It makes me sit slightly higher, so the turbulence off my Givi windscreen is a bit worse on my helmet. [The windscreen is already all the way up, and tilted back a bit.] It's time to revisit my 5+ years of windshield experiments on the V.
