I have one!

I think @MonkeyNot had one a while back, but he may have sold it on again?

I have two.
I don't think you will get an accurate figure from this post.
Maybe try to get the figures from Bmw ?

Am going to try and find out from them yes.
Would still be nice to get to know where the X's are, who owns them, etc

I am actually a bit stunned - I thought the Xc saddle was actually OK........?

Mind you, I have never done more than 400km in one shot with it, so maybe I am a bit out of touch....  :biggrin:

When I first got it, I rated mine a'150'. That's the maximum km's I could stand before stopping to walk around and massage my ass.

Now I think I'm getting worse. Have to re-classify it a '100' I think.  :-\

I have an inch of padding over the original seat. Great for the butt, not great for reaching the ground with tip toes.
