So met up with some folks last week for an annual ride. 100 miles to the hotel where we based out of. Put new Pirelli Rosso III’s on before the ride. This was the my first inkling that the stock seat is not very good. Bike handled fine and the power delivery was very nice and fairly smooth. Slight buzz in the bars but not horrible. Stock peg position felt comfortable with the balls of my feet on the pegs. The next day was a 330 mile loop. This confirmed that the stock seat pretty much sucks for me, the sides hitting me square in the hamstrings and the rise to the pillion hitting me in the tailbone. Only when we were in the twisty parts where I could slide part way off the seat was the seat not a problem. So this winter will be searching for a replacement. Taking any suggestions from anyone with an aftermarket seat.
