Seat mod for the passenger?

I've found lots of great advice for modifying the seat for the driver but am interested in either mods or aftermarket options to improve long distance comfort for the passenger. The more comfortable my wife can be the longer we can ride!

I found a custom upholstry shop that specializes in moto seats. The guy sounds like he knows what he's talking about and the price is reasonable so I think I'm going to try a custom job. Seems like custom is the only way to get everything I want. Thanks for all the feedback.

BTW, just got back yesterday from a "sage rat hunting" tournament in Eastern Oregon (believe it or not). Rode the V there on the backroads through some of the most beautiful country. Love that bike. Stock seat actually felt pretty good - but I'm normally an off road rider so anything wider than a 2 X 4 feels like a couch!
