The weekend was beautiful so I went a long ways. Two tanks full worth long. By the time I was back home, my butt was killing me.

I am 180lbs/81kg. Is there anyone who makes a more comfortable seat for the GRiSO. My reference is a 2007 Norge. I did multiple 200 mile+ rides and my butt did not hurt like this.

Thoughts and ideas on how to make the seat more comfortable for long distances?

You can’t go wrong with an Airhawk:

I put this bead cover on mine and it helps a lot. I got 2 of them from Amazon for a tad under $18.[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

I did 240 miles Monday, all back roads, on a stock seat. The Airhawk made it bearable. That said, I would prefer a different seat, one with a slightly raised rider section so as to provide a bit more leg room.

Hey Tx,

If you can't find one locally to borrow and try out, I could loan you my Corbin to see if you want to purchase one yourself. I can use my original till you send it back. I'm in the hill country.

I had a custom seat made by a local guy. He did a great job but in the end (heh!) it wasn't better/cheaper than a Corbin. It does allow a passenger so there is that.

I don't understand how 200 miles in a day could be a problem, but I can say for sure that 600 miles on the original seat is torture, for me. Kiwi_Roy's trip to Alaska using a Corbin seat convinced me that those must be pretty good, but that didn't cause my hand to extract my wallet.

Yes, thats the hard part, all day comfort though with that and lowered pegs from Knight design.

Saddles are such a subjective thing. Good luck in your search.

Keep in mind, if you put a Russel Day Long saddle on the GRiSO, I will ban you from this forum... affraid

As for the Air Hawk, I can't abide them. Feels like a trouser load of wet poopies to me.

When I first tried Airhawk, I didn’t like it either. Then a friend told me I had too much air in it and I should only fill it about 30-40%. He was right. It makes a big difference. Fill it like so:

I keep mine so it barely supports me. Too much air and it feels like you're trying to ride a soccer ball.

Step 1 Box it up and send it to Sargent

Step 2 They turn it around in 48 hours "Sargentized". The price is very reasonable.

Step 3 Ride in comfort
