Better Seat?

OK, so the seat is no more comfy than my DR650. I realized this 25 miles into last weekend's ride. I see there's a Power Sport edition from KTM (Which I have on the Super Duke R and is marginally more comfy, but looks nice and grips). I see Seat Concepts has an offering as well, but that too was only marginally better than stock on the DR. Any suggestions????????????

That's exactly what I've read, just "marginally better".
I've had several 5+ hour days in the saddle with no complaints, a few times two-up. However, on those days I typically mix gravel in with tarmac so I'm standing some as well which relieves a lot of pressure. So with that, I just can't justify paying for a new seat. Maybe give it while and see if it breaks in some??

My experience with the Seat Concepts replacement is about as good as you could expect from an off road motorcycle seat, its not going to be like a Russel Day Long on a road bike.
I got out with it for the first time yesterday on a 200 mile mostly road ride and found it to be substantially more comfortable than the stock seat.
Previous rides with the stock seat left me uncomfortable after two hours while the Seat Concepts let me go six hours with no discomfort.
The seat doesn't constrain you to one position as the stock seat does due to shape and the padding is more comfortable.
I purchased their tall/ comfort seat which may be different from others who have provided a review.
Good Luck!

Thanks! I see there are a few options. What about the Sport Touring seat? Is that pretty useless for off roading as opposed to the one you got?

Is this 1 pc the one you got?

The seat I got is the "Tall Comfort" model, not the Adventure Tall. My off roading on the seat is limited to some dirt roads and I didn't have any issues. I don't see myself doing any aggressive single track/ woods riding on the 1090- I'll take a smaller bike if that's the plan.

I'll be sure to post them. They said it may be close to 3 weeks before it's shipped as this is their busy season. Hopefully not, but not much I can do about it other than wait my turn and hope it's sooner than that.

....Ugh...I hate waiting.


Now that you've got me looking at them (again) more, I want one.
