Seat Concepts

I wanted a harder more flat seat. The stock seat is a great showroom seat because you melt into it and it feels great for the first hour or so. After that it is so soft and you sink so deep it creates a lot of contact area that just turns into heat. Not so bad in the winter but awful in the summer. I took a spare seat with a torn cover I purchased from eBay along with my new cover and foam to an upholstery shop. I asked that a zipper be put in along the back of the brand new cover. Now I have a way to slide a seat heating element in and out. I ride all year and having the seat heater is well worth the investment.

Rich's Custom Seats

A friend of mine got a custom seat from Rich's custom seats in Seattle. He has put on 80,000 miles on that seat in the past two years and loves it. No issues with comfort or hot spots. He regularly does 500 miles a day, just riding in California. I am thinking of getting them to do a seat for me this spring.
