Getting older and finding that I need more support and comfort on the GRiSO. So who makes the best most comfortable seat?
Also, it shouldn't be so ugly that I have to cry every time I see the bike!

Pix would be good to see..

Thanks!

I have past experience of both Corbin and Sergeant. Both are very, very good.

How do you place an order with Sargents? They don't show Moto Guzzi on the web page.
Do you have to send them a seat to rebuild?

That's the usual way.

I like my Corbin. I will find out next week how much on a 1000+ mile weekend in the mountains of N GA and Tennessee.  I had one on my Stelvio and put around 10k miles on it.

I like my MJM. Don't know if he does seats from overseas.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I plan on having Rich’s Custom Seats in Seattle do mine this summer. I’ve dropped my pegs an inch but still need a little more leg room. Rich’s can add some height to the seat to help with this. They do same day builds and have you ride the bike with what they’ve built to make sure it works for you before buttoning it up.

I just bought a Rich's seat on eBay! Its built on a GRiSO seat pan and looks like leather
will pick it up at the post tomorrow. Will try to post a pic.

Paid $60 so it doesn't have to be perfect....

The seat part is leather, the rest is vinyl. Quite comfortable and doesn't interfere with the rack

Nice score, Triman. I think you got that for about a tenth of what Rich's charges for a custom job.

I like my Corbin, custom made to fit my butt and bike while I waited at the Corbin factory in Hollister CA. Here is a pic of the new Corbin at Corbin.

First, its very comfy, nicely dished out Second it about one inch higher, more leg room for me!

Also, I think its pretty cool looking!

cheers

I think mine is about the same. I can flat foot the bike with the Corbin just as easy as the stocker. I have a 32" inseam. So far after 3000 miles no sore butt with the corbin, the stocker was good for about 80 miles before pain started

The rack and bag holders are stock Moto Guzzi items. I got them from AF1
I get constant use out of the rack and bags.
