    r100gs seat opinions please

    Hello all

    I would like your input on the most comfortable seat for the R100 GS.... solo version preferred but if please have the dual seat are better than I would rather comfort over the extra rack room....

    I am 5'10 and find the one that I have is too low and my butt is in pain after about 4hrs... I would like to go at least 8 to 10 without wanting to sit in ice. I have tried sheep skin and it helps but not to the limit that I am looking for.

    brands I know of are Corbin, Sargent, Wunderlich... are there others? Which do you find the most comfortable for a rider of my height?

    thanks in advance

    I have a 93 GSPD with a Corbin; very uncomfortable. I have Corbin's on three other bikes and I am happy with them, but not this one.

    92 GS with Corbin dual.......better than stock........

    Max 2 hrs on the bike....off....then repeat....

    The Corbin allows me to sit further back, which I like..........nice seat , but heavy.

    Very Cool. Pulp fiction (for reasons I cannot articulate) is one of my favorite movies. The video was better than the discovery channel adventures. Thanks for sharing.
