Another vote for Spencer. Most comfortable seat I've ever had, by far.

I went with Corbin's Gunfighter, and for all of the custom bits and money I've thrown at my bike, that was the best money I've spent on it.

Longest ride was a shade over 500 miles from Panama City Beach to my house in Nashville, TN. Could have gone longer, but that was my destination.

Stock seat gets me 80-90 miles tops before I absolutely cannot WAIT to get off the bike for a spell.

It's way more fun to ride a slow bike fast than it is to ride a fast bike slow.

What is the most comfortable seat?

For my T100 I have the stock seat of course, the Gel seat for giving the kids rides and the Scrambler solo seat with rack. The solo seat with rack is the most comfortable. Even before I had it modified. I sent the solo seat to Spencer at A Great Day to Ride, mentioned in a previous post. Itís really nice, I can and have ridden all day on it.
I donít have one for the Bonnie but the Corbin seats are great too, have that on my wifeís bike. I can not stop wondering about the gunfighter seat on mine.

Seat threads are pretty much like oil threads.
I'm a Sargent seat fan. I've had one on every bike I've owned for which Sargent offered a seat, I even had them re-do the stock seat on my airhead toaster. The only exception for me has been the Scrambler solo seat with the goofy rack. That seat is as comfortable as any Sargent I've owned, though I have to admit I've never taken the Scram on the kind of long trip that really acquaints you with your bike's rider triangle, wind protection, and seat. I do know, paranthetically, that the force of wind trying to pull my knees outward at 80 mph on the Scram pretty much rules out epic highway miles on that one. Still love that bike, though. Horses for courses.

According to the web site you basically design your own and he cuts it for you? So how did you choose how to have your seat designed? Is there a standard that he uses or does he take your height/weight/inseam etc and plug it into a formula?

I gotta agree with Bonza, the stock seat on my Scrambler is by far the best seat I have had on any bike I've owned. A Husqvarna, a Harley and one KTM in recent years can't compare to the wide, flat, if not plush seat that so far has been a joy no matter how far I go.
