as i'm sure Gary and a few others have stated the comfort cannot be expressed enough. the seat isn't even "broken in" yet and I did 250 miles today and my butt didn't go numb at all!
also I don't know if i'm imagining this just cause i'm excited about the new seat, or it's for real-but after riding over some of the same roads/bumps that i normally have to hit around my area, i'd swear it seems softer (i.e.-i'm not feeling bumps as much, or being jolted off the seat)- and i haven't changed the suspension in over a month so that's the same. so is it the extra padding helping out?
$ Bill- yes it's technically 3 shades. the bike is listed as Matte silver, the paint i used on the side covers/radiator cover is called Matte Nickel, and Corbin calls the rear seat color Ghost Gray. i tried to pick the color that would closest match IMO. sure it's not 100%, but I love it!
