Experience with OEM Suzuki Low Touring Seat

I was checking for low seat for my DL1000.
I wonder what is the experience of the forum members about this product?
Is this good?

It botters me everytime that I have walk the bike, it is hard to do that when we don't seat the entire feet on the floor.
My intention is to replace the seat instead of going with the lowering kits.

So, if you guys can give me your view, it may help checking about the low seat.

Thanks

I had one, but went back to the standard seat as it was more comfortable. However, put a peg lowering kit on the bike, removed all the rubber bumpers from under the seat pan, put lowering dog bones on the rear, and raised the fork tubes to match suspension drop in the rear. I'm about 5' 10" and can easily flat foot while seated on the bike now. My 2 cents.

The low touring seat for the Vee is the stock seat on the Wee. It is significantly less comfortable.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. 2012 DL650A is just getting started.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014+ DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012+ DL650s

Thanks Greywolf.
I'm surprising to know the Wee seat is the Vee low seat. So Wee doesn't have low seat, or that would make an even lower Vee seat?

The Glee has a low seat but I don't think the Wee ever had anything lower than the stock seat. I may be wrong.
