    I am hoping by the time you read this you have figured out which seat you will purchase.
    I have to HIGHLY recommend the Russell Day-Long seat. If you enjoy touring, it will perhaps
    be the best item for your BMW that you will ever purchase. The only drawback (if you want to
    call it that), is that you must send in your seat, and the Russell seat is a rebuild of your current seat.
    This means that you will be without a seat, unless you purchased a second, for 2-3 weeks. Once your seat arrives
    you will forget all about that time. And amazingly well ergonomically fitted seat using your weight and body dimensions
    to custom manufacture the seat in whichever color(s) you choose. They are an easy to work with group. Any questions
    receive a rapid response. Best investment you will make toward riding comfort for your BMW

    heated backside

At least one part of the solution for me will be Mick-O-Pegs http://www.ridingiswonderful.com/page50.php. Beyond that, it will have to be a custom seat. Right now it's a toss-up between the venerable RDL and a Kontour http://kontourseat.com/. My old bike, a 2004 Honda VTX 1800 Neo-Retro, was not comfortable at all for me. I bought an Ultimate Big Boy 4 piece seat, and yet that still wasn't enough. I added an AirHawk pad on top of that, and I can go about 300 miles before the heat gets to be too much for my backside. Heat seems to be the biggest issue for me. I don't think it will be nearly the same concern on the GTL I just bought, as I'm not sitting almost on top of one of the cylinders like I was the VTX. But, knowing that history, the Kontour definitely has me interested. I'd love to hear from other owners who've had one.
    I had the same problem with my seat being hot. I fixed it easily with my riding pants. Klim Dakar. Good venting in my pants made all the difference to my comfort.
