It just depends on your riding style: if you move a lot on the saddle and don't stay too much in the upright position you can take the racing one (it is very hard in the middle so it can be a problem on long runs: let say that after 30minutes you will feel it).
I have a racing riding style but I took the gel saddle which is very confortable even after 2 hours and personally I like the look it has. Price in Europe is around is 190euro (that's about 270USD).

We talkin Aussie $$$ or Americian $$$...

Get it Custom done for your own Anatomy and ridin style ,,,save some time in the long run ,Not too complicated to do if you get the right upholstery shop with the proper density of foam, or even take a crack at it yourself...

In the heat of summer it was said you need 1/2 hour to pull the gel seat out of your butt!!

It's like blondes or redheads,,up to you..
I like the look of the DP preformance seat...

Its an all day ride with the DP comfort seat, a must if you plan to ride any distance.

I have the race seat. It came on the bike and I find it very acceptable. Of course I was riding a DR650 and a WR250 so a 2x4 would be an improvement. :D

Has anyone been using the Sargent seat? Looks good...

I just ordered my comfort seat as well, it will ship out on Tuesday due to the holiday. The start of the winter mods...
Hi, I checked out the site and the comfort seat is listed as a lowered model. Is this the seat all of you are talking about or is there a comfort seat with a reg. height

The reason its lower is its cut flatter, and doesn't cause you to slide into the tank. Its about an inch lower toward the rear.

There is only one DP comfort seat and it is lower than the stock one, so I have read. I am 5'7" and can only get my tippy toes to touch so I wouldn't mind being slightly lower.

The race seat looks better but the comfort seat is better on long rides (I have both).
Either is an improvement over the stock seat IMO.

i also have both and totally agree. if i am going to go on a longer ride, i use the comfort seat. if i have a track day, i put the race seat on. i find it more difficult to move around on the comfort seat.
