ease up on the right wrist twist! 50mpg is not hard to get on a C50.

Here's my review...

Good bike, good fuel mileage, good seat, go ride. End of review.

I'm not a biker, I'm a trucker that rides a bike.

Is the 03 seat different? I found it intolerable.

Don't know about the '03 seat but the '11 seat is just fine for me. I could go 4 miles or 400 plus miles. Seat is still comfortable. I'm 230lbs 5' 9" and would not ride it if my a.s.s. did not agree.

I found the '03 seat just fine. I guess I have enough personal padding in the right place. I bought the Mustang so the wife would have a softer ride. Now I more that just fine

I know you believe that you understand what you think I said but I'm sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

'05 Honda VTX 1300R Champion trike Kit. Mustang Seats and Backrests, Kuryakyn ISO grips, pegs, floorboards, shifter and brake peddles, Cup Holder. Universal passenger arm rests, Wolo horn, Vista Cruise, Shark 600 watt stereo, ShowChrome Risers, lots of chrome.

I rarely go over 60. Mid forties are the best I get.
