The seat on my Honda was absolutely horrible to sit on for more than 20 minutes when I first got the bike. The stock seat was so bad my toes would go numb. The previous owner had the same trouble and included with the sale of the bike every cushion he had tried including an Airhawk. I found this site while looking around for a cheaper alternative to a Corbin ($700 plus).Welcome! I think you will find that everyone hear loves the V. It has a few warts, but none of them are very bad. Most people find the seat uncomfortable on longer rides. Personally I am getting used to it, but would love a better seat. If the vibration dampers come off you will get some buzzing from the plastic cowling and around the headlight, both are easily remedied. Most vibrations don't make it to the handlebars or foot pegs. Plenty of power and lot's of fun. I ride mine to work most days and have racked up 3,000 miles in two months.
