Or you could upgrade the cover. The one from MotO.K. is vinyl, not leather, but I think that's better anyway as leather doesn't repel water as well. And in my opinion it looks great and adds a custom touch. This fits the stock seat which I find quite comfortable - I put 50,000 miles on my 1100 GRiSO Rosso with the stocker.

Finally got around to picking up my new modified seat.

It had a three day turnaround.
I had them move the stitching to the side, as I think the original position of the stitching was irritating me..
And they have replaced the foam and scalloped out the seat a bit, ride report to come

Well I found out Sunday on my first real ride on the bike, 320 miles, the seat is a killer. My ass hurt for hours after I got home. I don't look forward to another long day on it knowing what will happen. It is like the seat is too narrow and the left side dug in to my butt bone. My income tax should be refunded in a few weeks and probably a corbin in my future.

I've just ordered a Moto.k. cover not because I find the original uncomfortable but I to tend to move around on it too much and to be honest it looks good too.
Being comfortable for long distances can be very subjective even down to what trousers and pants you are wearing. For long distances I find leather jeans and cycling underwear do the trick on the dozens of different bikes I have ridden.

Thanks for the bump! Just ordered a seat cover from MotoK - My Sport seat looks as old as it feels, with gaps into the foam, broken stitching, and looking pre-loved.

Looks fantastic! Almost makes me feel sad that I like the stock seat so won't have a reason to change it.
