The people on this forum are awesome, one member said I could try his Sargent adventure for a few days. I took it for a ride down shifted and hit the brakes it was so slippery my balls hit the tank and I immediately returned it.  I 'm glad I didn't buy it but some people love it. As Barnum said there's an ass for every seat, it just wasn't mine. I realize this isn't that helpful but thought I would share.

I have the Touratech  Standard Comfort seat and it is very comfortable.  Worth the money for me.  Over 5k on it now and found it to be very durable too.
Do you have the rider seat only or the pillion seat as well ? I would be interested in some pictures as well, particularly in the size difference over the stock seats, thanks !

I went with a russel day long.  Still had to level it. At first I was not sure, but after a 7000 trip, I will sing it's praises.  This was the first major trip I did not have to take Advil.  The seat works nicely.
I will second that. You can ride all day and never notice your sitting.

I ordered the Seat Concepts regular density seat and should have it in a week or so. I'll post pics and report after install.

Did you get your Seat Concepts and if so what did you think about it?

I had Seth Lamb do my seat. He is located in California and he did a wonderful job at a very reasonable price. I have tried almost every seat made and his is...the best!

I was just talking to him a couple days ago. I plan on sending my seat to him at the end of the month.

I got a Seat Concepts with the seat level job. I have the fake carbon fiber look cover. It's a little too slick. It's been on for probably 25000 miles. It's good for me for 2 hours. Then I'm squirmin a little on my tender tailbone. I'm 6'3" 210lbs. It's alot better for me than stock. Some people brag on the stock seat. I HATED it. May have been the gripper cover and definetly the forward tilt. I think I'm going with the Lamm seat this winter.

I know seats are a very different animal from person to person, but I am hoping I can get a little feedback to guide my decision. For the record I am 6'3", 225lbs with a 34" inseam.

On the stck seat I get a sore bum after an hour or so - not my tailbone but more each cheek's pressure point, as it were.

Now I have to admit I don't care for the looks of the RDL seat, so I would like to try something else. I had a Sargent seat on my KLR, which was a big improvement over the stock seat. It was not magical, though.

What I am looking for is to be comfortable to about 2hrs on the bike, since I generally take a break a minimum of every 2hrs (most of the time sooner than that) and get off the bike to stretch, etc. I would like to get off the bike because I need to strecth, and not because my rear end is killing me AND I need to stretch.

I would like to know how some of you who have similar issues with their stock seats have made out with a Sargent, Corbin, or Saddlemen seats?

I have searched the forum and done some reading, so my apologies for  ::002::
