Touring seat

Postby FZ1Rider » Mon Aug 03, 2009 10:12 pm

Looking to take a couple of longer rides, but don't think I could handle it with the stock seat. Haven't found anything on line as of yet. Anybody have any ideas on an alternative? Thanks

well you could look into those gel seat covers. They start from about 100 and go up if I remember right, but there supposed to work well. Or you could always just load your pants with charmin...lol....comfy ride and you wouldn't have to stop for #2 :biglol

But seriously heres a link to a site...not sure if any applications will fit your ride but they do make custom ones as well

Knowing the difference between right and wrong is easy. The hard part is choosing the wrong thats more right.

I had someone from another forum, tell me to get a pair of bicycle shorts. I think they have gel inserts in them.

There was a guy that took the stock seats and refoamed them to make them much more comfortable...or so everyone says. I'll see if I can remember where I found him.

greatdaytoride.com is the name of the guys site. I think his name is spencer. From what I have read it is much better than the stock seat and is a lot cheaper than a corbin or other new seat. I keep saying I am gona send mine off but haven't been getting to ride much lately so it hasen't been as much of a concern to me.
