Some good advice here.
I've done a few coast to coast trips over the years, NJ to CA and back.
Between 500 and 800 miles a day on a 2003.

For me, YMMV
Good seat, I love my Mustang touring seats.
Back support, I use a hard round bag with back rest that holds gear. Biker's Friend or similar.
The right handlebars for your riding comfort.

if i would have been smart, i would have got a patent on air ride.
on one jaunt to fl, the wife got her a beach ball and partly inflated it and rode on that.
the thing about the ironhead and as well as ridged mounts is to stay out of the vibe zone. on my iron it came in around 3.2k but smoothed out at 4k.
but then again, i rode ridged all my life and even at 71, does not bother me.
my evo with the way it is configured, hardly any vibes to begin with.
they do make air ride seats.
