690R Comfort seat recommendations?
« on: May 04, 2015, 08:04:48 am »
Did a long ride the stock seat was torture. Can anyone recommend a well priced comfort seat?

Op adv rider gelees van touratech wat net so gemaklik is soos corbin en slavens seats. Maar daai prys van  $650 is jags.
Ek het al gedink om stock seat integee om oorgedoen te word maar is bang dit is n fokop en sit dan met niks.
Ek het gister 7ure op bike spandeer en my gat is ma rou vandag.

Yeah I did 700kms of tar on Saturday and saying it was painful is an understatement. I like the lower touratech seat but yes they are crazy expensive

Ek het die oorspronklike Seat concepts - sort van n DIY deal.  Hulle het kompleet sitplekke nou met hulle eie basisse.  Ek het die leer weergawe, het 2 Amagezas oorleef.

Ek het die touratech gehad om my vorige 690 nie die geld werd nie. Die seat het 'n ridge wat dit moelik maak om vorentoe en agtertoe te skuif.  Disn probleem offroad en op lang oop paaie as jy wil versit.

I have a seatconcepts seat on my 690. Compared to my 300 this seat feels like a comfy armchair. I have no idea how it compares to a standard 690 seat as I have never ridden one before.



We did a 850Km trip the other day of which more than 500 was on dirt. I can tell you the last 150 Km or so on tar was absolute torture.

If I have to choose between a standard F800 seat and this one the 800 will win handsdown.  ;D
