Is there a far more comfortable seat out there for the TW? My stock seat is not bearable after 30 minutes.
Mike, Toehunter and I met on the Ocean shores beach and I asked him to join us here. So glad he has joined us. Look forward to riding with him and others in the future. Would be great to have us get together at my place or wherever.ToeHunter....first...WELCOME to the forum......another Washington State TW rider....YEAH !
See, our statewide recruiting program is wiorking.
I have the Coleman ATV seat cushion on my bike...and a real sheepskin cover over that. I don't live too far from you, and we could meet in Montesano....where another TW rider lives...so you can see the seat cushion that a lot of us buy, anbd use. I got mine from Amazon, for $ 19.95.
Who knew BMW stood for, Bring My Wool.I put a sheepskin on mine, and it's probably the most comfortable seat I've ever used on a motorcycle. It's the only one I've ever been able to ride longer than 1 hour without stopping. I won't ride a seat without a sheepskin anymore though. I could have a brand new BMW 1200, and it would still have my dirty old grey sheepskin on it.
I think if I had that problem I would ask Seat Concepts to build me a seat that has a lower channel down the middle. Then only your cheeks will rest in the seat. Then ride your ass off.I have noticed since my last visit to the doctors that I have been diagnosed with haemorrhoids due you think this is due to my TW seat ?
I need the extra height. While I'm temporarily using an extra chair seat pad on top of the Stearns/Colman/Maddog series seat pads, my actual goal will be to raise the seat height. Problem for me is when riding trails I need to lift my legs a lot to avoid rocks etc. After a while my hip flexors start to ache because I'm sitting to low making it hard to lift my legs. 2-4 extra inches helps a lot and I can still touch the ground with both legs when stopped.The only negative is that it raises your seat level a couple inches. The bike feels a little bigger, but my legs are long enough that I don't mind when I'm on a trail.
