Is this a common problem?? I'm looking to buy a used 2011 Touring (have not seen it in person though) and aside from not having some recalls performed, the bike has no issues (per seller, of course). I'll make sure to asking him about the seat (if he has noticed anything different, especially spreading that you had mentioned), but I wanted to see if this is a known / common problem.
