The cure is easy. Take a motorcycle ride to Corbin (Hollister, CA), Rick Mayer (Anderson, CA), or Bill Mayer (Ojai, CA) and get a seat made to fit YOU. Or take a longer trip to Russell (Mt. Shasta City, CA), Mr. Ed (Albany, OR) or Rich O'Connor (Kingston, WA). Advance reservations only.

I'm tired of the ball rack feeling, any idea's? I have a stock seat, has anybody else had the feeling? Any cures?
It's usually your pelvic bones that hurt like hell. Try a custom seat.

Wear suspenders for your sack and stop sitting on your balls!

Stock seat for me = numb twins and a sore coccyx...

Suzuki gel seat = perfect

I finally bit the bullet and got a Corbin seat. Tried almost everything to stop the pain, discomfort and lack of fun on 2 wheels. Shoulda done this 3 or 4 years ago.

On the seat all day every day 14 days straight. 6k miles. Stock seat. No discomfort yet.
I would say that proves without a doubt that seat comfort is indeed subjective. I rode my RT for fortythousand miles with a stock seat and could not imagine why there was a problem. But I tried a different seat on a dare and bought it immediatly ,

Now on the Wee , I can only feel comfortable for about an hour or two and endure it up to eight hours but I am looking for a better seat because being uncomfortable is no longer a given on a motorcyle as good as the Wee so why not invest in one that suits you. There's the rub, how to decide.

I just finished my first Iron Butt Saddle Sore with a gel seat. I wore UA boxer-briefs (may be TMI but its in the interest of science) and rode 1040 miles in 20 hours with nary a complaint from the boys. Wearing loose boxers or riding commando (not that there's anything wrong with that) may be part of the reason for discomfort. UA or LD Comforts, throw in some Anti Monkey Butt powder and you're good to go!
