I've read some good and some bad about the gel seat. It looks like it depends mostly on riding temp as the gel stiffens in cooler weather. The Corbin has a nice shape to it and everyone says promotes a more comfortable ride, but they say sliding side to side in turns can be tough due to the molded shape. It kind of locks you into one position.
Just curious, how do you know the seat is painful if you don't have on yet? I have a really bad lower back and used to have leg problems riding my BMW tourer, the Triumph has left me pain free so far. Go figure.

On the ride home my wrists were sore. I posted on here and got an answer from TripleThreat, one of the mods. Best advise in the world which was to put the Tech-Spec grips on the tank. Here's the posting.
I would give the seat a week or so before you make any decisions.
