Before the comfy seat I could easily stand up on the ground and be at least 2 inches on the seat. Now on the comfy one I can still stand up probably with about an inch of wiggle room. If you are on the taller side, you will not notice the height difference, only the comfort!
1 inch is a lot and would give plenty much more room for my legs, trust me. A seat height of 32.9 inches (31.9 standard) on the M1100 would be great, but I really doubt it goes that high with the touring seat.
There's a low seat option available to reduce the seat height by approx. 20mm (0.79 inches). Why not a high seat option? There are tall riders out there too!
