    Default I need a better seat

    Just back from my marathon journey..4000 miles No hiccups, no dramas or getting lost just very enjoyable and I got the travelling bug now I think. Oh I got caught up but only by redirected onto another road by Police at Barcelona, I later found out that it was due to some independence voting malarkey. Rode round the old Montjuic circuit - wow .
    Anyway got a numb arse, does anyone know if there is some kind of extra padding or different seat to fit to an 848 or some one that can modify the existing one.

    I don't know if they are any better than OEM but Sargent do a seat for the 848/1*98.

    Old enough to know better, young enough not to care

    The 848 street fighter ( same tail piece I think ) has a comfort seat option - with gel padding and a lot more shape up near the tank - much much better than the ball breaker it came fitted with.
    I'll love you with all the madness in my soul

    I had a custom Gel seat made for my 848 by Saddle Craft in South Shields http://www.saddlecraft.co.uk/

    If you wanted to try it out I'll let you put it on your bike.
    In Theory, Practice and Theory are the same. In Practice they are different.

    I've just bought a Seat Concepts tall seat. Not sure if they do one for yours.
    Recently back from a 2000 mile Euro tour and thought the first few days that it wasn't much better than what I had. It's now broken in and loads better. I used to start fidgeting about 80 miles and on a local run once home realised that it was all day comfort now. Just have steadily got used to it on our 10 day trip.
