GS Ralley

Does anyone on here have a GS with the true ralley seat?...I'm not liking the idea of a seat "bucket" and the thought of a seat I can move around on sounds good.

My rallye seat came with my bike, but frankly, I wish I had the standard rider and passenger seats.

That's what I'm concerned about... I'm 6'3" and coming to the GS from dual sports...I'll assume the GS seat is just new to me and made the way they are for a reason.
I'm used to moving around on the seat, front to back..

Love my Rallye seat. Very very comfortable for me, 5'11" average build. I've seen lots of people who don't and most Rallye's sold when I bought mine last October were with the dual seat set up. So there was a definite preference for the dual set up. The GS Rallye seat is contoured to provide a bit of a front v back seat feel, but allows for lots of fore aft movement if needed.

I sat on a GSA today that had the " High" seat option...It made the transition between front and back almost as smooth as the ralley seat.. I might be leaning that way.

Oz spec Rallye Xs all seem to have the one piece seat, optional dual seat. Though very comfortable solo.
Passengers dont get much to sit on so may be worth perhaps having both to switch around as you need?

Although a somewhat pricey option I think that might be the best way..
