Gel Seat

Hey guys. I'm looking to upgrade my stock DL650 seat. I know that there are a massive amount of opinions concerning seat upgrades. I think with the budget in mind, I'd like to at least look at the Gel Seat by Suzuki. Problem is that I am vertically challenged. I know they are a bit higher. Anyone out there within 100 miles or so of Midland MI that would let me try out their Gel?? Thanks in advance.

The Gel seat, WITH a sheepskin pad works great for me, far, far better than the stock seat on the 650 or 1000. I have no trouble getting my feet flat on the ground with my 1K, but, on my wife's 650, I lowered it 1" in the rear, 3/4 on front, and she loves it. Lowering the bike is not much money, or work .
