I recently bought a 650 and I was wondering if anyone out there had any opinions about different seats. I was considering getting the tall touring seat but am a little hesitant about putting down $200 for a seat I've heard nothing about. Any coments anyone?
Seats are very much individual preference, what's great for one person may be horrible for another.
That said, my take is:
Stock 650 seat; not awful, but not good either
Stock 1000 seat; an improvement, but not great.
Corbin; wonderful!! I did a 12 hour day on it last fall and could have kept going. Was a little surprised, I've had Corbins on other bikes and they weren't this good.
Had a Russell on my Concours, it was excellent.
The gel seat from suzuki looks like it might be a good option, if I hadn't gotten a good deal on the Corbin I'd have tried one.
