HELP - Seat hurts my back, need a better seat option
My 2012 T100 has the flat, single seat with white trim (see attached photo). A lifetime of auto racing has left my spine in poor condition. I can barely ride 20 minutes before my lower back and tail bone begin to hurt. I really don't want to mess up the vintage look of my bike, but I either have to sell it or make it so I can ride in comfort.
All I could find on Triumph's web site was a $375 King And Queen Seat that might provide about 4 inches of lower back support. I'm not sure that's enough
Yes, I realize that this may entail getting rid of my wonderful little luggage rack but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.
Does Triumph make any type of lumbar support or backrest for the 2012 T100? Do you guys have any other ideas? I love my bike and want to remain a Triumph owner. Any help is appreciated.
