OEM seats are probably the biggest complaint bike owners have. If you are planning longer trips and want to be sure you no longer suffer from such, then I recommend having your seat modified by "Russell Cycles". Name of the seat mod is "Day-Long" and the seat mods are 5 star rated by their customers. If you don't want to wait for a Russell seat mod then there are several other seat modifiers out there, just search the web. You can also opt to change out your seat with an aftermarket seat, like "Saddleman", "Ultimate", "Mustang", " Corbin". There are others, have to search. These have varied success. Some love em and some hate em and some in between. It's hit and miss. Choose well because none of them are cheap. Oh also you can purchase " Butt" aids at much lower cost to help some. If you are only going on longer rides occasionally, this may be the way you want to go. I personally use Alaskan sheepskin and find it works very well for me. You also have choices such as " Air Hawk", and many other types of gel pads, air pads, beads, etc, etc,. Good luck with your choices.
