Do other people find it different on different days? I've had numb bum within an hour on some days & on others no problem, did 600 miles one day in August going to Sweden, came home form Ullapool 450 miles with just 2 fuel stops &  last year Loch Lomond to home 260 miles with just one fuel stop. Comfort seat not heated. I go for a ride a week after & need get off after 50 miles. Mebbe it's when we aint riding every day, our bum muscles get soft eh.
Yeah, I think youre right.  Some days I can ride all day, some days a couple hours and the butt aches... (or maybe Im just getting old😏)

My second hand VStrom came with a Sargent which was my intro. Getting rid of my "bag 'o nails" the XRX came with "comfort seat" which for me was anything but. Bought the Sargent and sold the as new XRX original on here for most of what I paid for the Sargent. Bliss for my bum & my wallet. :015:

Nice seat!

Any riders using a Touretech seat??  i am in doubt between Sargent / Touratech.

I have just bought a Sargent one, so we will see how it goes  :001:

It is interesting though, how many people aren't impressed with the Tiger seat.

When I first bought my Tiger I found the seat a little uncomfortable after a while but now it gives me no issues now my arse has adapted.   :001:

Maybe I am on the wrong tack buying another seat, body modification is the way to go!  :001:

Could ride 200 mile with the comfort seat (xrx) without distress.

Can manage about 125 mile with the (xrt) heated seat.

I have a Touratech seat it is Fab. I have a well padded rear myself but found the standard heated seat on my XRT unbearable after 200 miles.
