Hi everyone. I will be getting a Daytona 675 as my next bike, but I was wondering if anyone has tried the gel seat or any other seat on it. The stock seat is so painful for me to sit on even for a few minutes so I was wondering if there are any options that really work well. Thanks for any tips!

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.
I sat on the bike at the dealer and immediately felt that it was way too hard. How are your wrists holding up?
