Looking for a opinion on a new seat.

I have about 20k miles on a Corbin seat. And still after 75 or 100 miles my ass is absolutely not comfortable at all. What are you guys doing for long rides?

Sargent is popular here, I had one and it was better than the OEM IMHO, can't speak for Corbin on a MTS. How about a black sheepskin pad or Airhawk?

just did 1400 miles in 4 days on a Sargent seat Ass never hurt, some of those days were over 8 hours in the saddle do to the miles of twisty roads though north Carolina and northern Georgia, I own a 2013 multi and the stock seat SUCKS LOL!! I had a Corbin on another bike it wasn't a bad seat but the Sargent is a lot better for me and worth every penny

It's the heat that causes the discomfort. Try some isolation

A Pain in the butt?

This is the best seat I have had on any motorcycle. Pricy but I think it is worth every penny if you are in the saddle a lot. Second place goes to the Airhawk, when adjusted properly it makes a long day feel short.

Went with a Sargent World Sport Performance low seat, love it. But better than that was the addition of a pair of Moto-Skiveez riding underwear. I have an Airhawk but no longer use it - the underwear coupled with the excellent seat were a perfect solution. Bought the seat when I hit 15k miles on my '13, now at 33k miles and loving it.

I currently run a Corbin and I'm loving it. With the mention of 20k miles on your current seat I'd suspect the internals are starting to break down

Just another rider in the family.

My ass has been hurting since day 1 on it. I thought maybe it had to break in. Unfortunately they want $375 to open it up and take a look inside, might as well buy another one.

My experiences:

1) definitely get your base layer sorted. The right underwear makes all the difference. Heat and sweat are our enemies.

2) my GT came with the Touring Seat, which is quite comfortable for my bony *ss and 185 lbs, and the Mrs says her part is very comfortable as well.

3) My previous two bikes had poor seats, I had Don Weber of Mr. Ed's Moto make custom seats for us, which involved both of us spending a day with him to get it the way we wanted. Made a huge difference.
