Suzuki Gel seat passenger comfort?
Yeah, I know this is probably talked about all the time.
After riding on 2 110 or so mile rides this week. I realized the stock seat really isn't that comfortable(breaking news, right?).
I don't care for the "saddle" type seats(Corbin, Sargent, etc), I'm sure they are comfy but don't fit my riding style. The Saddlemen seats with suede really appeal to me, but are a little more costly than I feel I can justify for as much as I ride, which gets me to the Suzuki Gel seats.
They seem to be generally liked are $130+ less than saddlemen. But what I don't see answered much is, how is the passenger area compared to stock? My wife doesn't seem to mind stock it as much as I mind the front, but definitely wouldn't argue with some improvement. The gel seat looks a little taller than stock in the back, but is it much different?
