I have owned three different BMW bikes and all three stock seats were crap, IMO. Some people are lucky and can handle the stock seat.
I found the GS stock seat way to narrow for my butt. Had a Kontour made from the stock seat pan and it didn't make much difference, still to narrow. Sold it. Kontour can make a wide seat too if you choose so. I did not choose too.
Sargent seats are much wider then stock seats and much more comfortable to me. Sargent seats do not interfere with off-road riding either.
I also add an Airhawk when on long rides.
I had a Kontour seat on my GTL and it was great with its air cooling.
