    Well Hello

    Hi, Introduction time
    I live in Grimsby N E Lincolnshire (please don't hold that against me), 63 years old and been riding on and off since I was 16.
    Bought my 2013 TTSE in June 2020 and love it but it's making my bum numb at the moment.
    My last 'forever bike' was a K1200 lt which got nicked and burned out so I decided to buy the TTSE to take me into retirement and adventures.
    If you're ever in the Grimsby/Cleethorpes area remember the kettle is always on
    Be seeing ya !

    Hi Big Bob and :400: to the Club !

    I had the same problem - you can try Airhawk cushions,
    ( Other brands are available ), Wooden beaded seat mats,
    Gel cushions, Sheepskin covers, any of which may be right for you.

    I ended up getting a Russell Day Long Seat
    from a former Member who sold his Trophy.

    Not the cheapest option,
    but definitely one of the comfiest !

    Cheers  :821:

    That about the kettle sounded good.

    Thanks everyone for all the suggestions, I have bought (some time ago) a black sheepskin seat cover which I intend to fit before 4th July when I'm due to go on a 500 miles round trip to Scotland boarders and back home to see if this helps before spending any more money. Simple things first i always say.

    I am sure sheepskin helps a little more comfort.

    For Norway I had to buy a skin of that style because every 200 and a few kilometers I no longer felt my butt. The sheepskin helped a lot, the bad thing was the rain that we catch every day.
