I got a single gel seat on my speedmaster and its great, as for being hot it doesn't bother me.

Well that certainly sounds like a Scram seat - not gel though.

Indeed, I'm probably gonna pick up a scram gel dual seat and give that a try.

Gypsy - don't get your problem. I found the stock seat fine, the gel seat good and the solo seat w/ rack great - seriously comfy. Maybe your problem is that you have a Bonnie and not Scrambler seat.
my real problem with seats is i have a weird ass. yes, i realize what i just typed. i'm laughing, aren't you? :-P

I have the solo with rack and a gel 2-up but no stock seat. I would trade my gel for your stock one if you want.

Is there such a thing as a solo gel seat (with rack) for the Scrambler. The 2007 Scrambler I bought two days ago came with two seats, the regular dual seat and this solo gel seat. It is much softer than the regular seat but I don't see a solo gel seat being offered for sale anywhere. Thanks, Rob

I agree with vzshadow, my seat is more than adequate. My only mild concern is the suspension is sometimes harsh over big bumps or holes in the pavement. What amazes me is that some people have bought three or four seats looking for that perfect seat. Even people who order Corbin and the like send them back several times for refitting. Guess my body type just fits the stock seat fine enough for me. I can't imagine how difficult it must be to design a seat to literally satisfy everyone and still maintain the purchase point that Triumph does.
