I sent my stock seat to Spencer to perform his magic, but it didn't suit my anatomy & was still unbearable after a short time even after the 500 miles break-in period. Absolutely nothing against what Spencer did - I'm just one in a hundred that it didn't work out.

In desperation, I ordered a factory gel seat, immediately found relief & it continued to get even more comfortable as the miles passed. Also, I was concerned it wouldn't work as well in cold weather, but it must form to your caboose & stay that way because it's just as comfy at 50 as it is 90 - plus your cowl fits. I highly recommend it if you find the stock crowned seat placing too much pressure between your cheeks.
Cool, I got to get it now.

i picked up a used like new burton bike bits classic DS003 because it looked RIGHT! it sure did and a nice improvement over the stock 2012 base bonnie seat, this week i installed bitubo WME shocks and the seat felt TWICE as good!!! for my light weight the stock shocks were very hard, i read this before and i can attest a better shock really adds to seat comfort
