The gel seat is much better than the stock seat for me. With the stock seat, I was good for about 50 miles before I started to wiggle in the seat.
The gel seat makes it a good 300 miles - but (or is it butt?) after that it gets painful for me. And after a ten day ride of 400-500 miles a day, I was not as happy as I'd like to be.
I need to be able to do 500+ mile days - I was able to do that on the Mustang seat I had on the last bike, so I'm looking for a way to make that happen on the Strom. I spoke with Rick Mayers at the BMW rally in VT. - I tried his seat and it seems like it might do the job, but (or is it still butt?) only time and a long ride will tell.
I think for a lot of people, the gel seat is great - and a good value! But (here we go again), I'm looking for more.
