My seat was too hard. For the last 50 miles of a 200 mile round trip to Hastings, I was in actual physical pain. Many folk would say “man up and deal with it”, but seriously, I’d done 400 miles in a day on my Xevo and had no pain whatsoever, so there was something wrong with the seat.
On a recommendation from our very own Wasp, I took my seat to Lee from Viking Vinyls, http://www.vikingmotorcycleseats.co.uk/ (also https://www.facebook.com/leetheseat). Crappy Website, but good service at a good price! For £125, Lee put both Gel and Memory Foam under my seat, and wow has it made a difference. On the weekend I did just under 300 miles in a day (thanks to a Jetstream ride-out) and no problem whatsoever - it’s like night and day.
