PostSubject: OEM seat kills my tail bone!!   Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:55 pm

Gents, Greetings from Sydney

A bit of advice, After 30 mins I have real "tail bone Pain" was going to say Coccyx but it sounds dodgy lol

Should I invest in a Corbin seat which will be $800USD landed in Oz, or buy an Airhawk?

Also will it help if I drop the pegs?

Thanks all

Jokes and piss taking welcome

You’re more than welcome to drop up to Bungendore and borrow mine for an afternoon if you want to try before you buy. What year is your SE?

Good advice Pete, from Pete ( Too many Pete's ) The Corbins are a Firm seat , but support your butt better on the longer rides.

Pete, you could also check out MJM seats in Goulburn. I had mine done there and it cost me $525. delivered. It may not look a svelte as the GRiSO seat, but it sure is easier on the arse.

I'm sure the seat will help but a lack of comfort can be about the riding position, the relationship between arm back and legs while on the bike.
Using 25mm lower footpegs can make things surprisingly better, the same with the handlebars position. Worth thinking about if the seat still isn't right.

FWIW I damaged my butt bone a decade ago, bought the Airhawk & have been very happy with it.

It's the cheaper option, I switch it between bikes & take it with me when I'll be sitting on hard chairs for hours.

The downside is you lose some of the input you get of what the bikes doing underneath you. But for touring it's fine

I love my Airhawk too. For longer rides, there is no substitute.

Why not have an auto/m-c upholstery shop make the stocker the way u want it? Going to do the same with the new GRiSO and will spend way less for what fits me. Already talked with them and can wait while they cut/add/remove foam and make it right. There's gotta be someone near you. I have an Airhawk for my Concours14 and works fine, but raises me up and I feel kinda disconnected when cornering. YMMV.
