Hi from South Florida
« on: September 19, 2013, 06:12:45 PM »
Just got my Trophy SE last weekend.  We love the bike but cannot stand the seats; both get fairly severe back pain when riding for more than an hour.  My Hayabusa is more comfortable than the Trophy.  We are going to have some custom seats made so we can ride longer.  Traded in a Goldwing for this bike and there is no comparison (good for performance, bad for comfort).

Hi there and  :400: to the Club !

I don't have a problem with my UK seats, but there are quite a few posts within the forums
about different seats, low / high / comfort and other makes, so I'm sure you will find something that suits  :028:

welcome aboard  :821: apparently not many of us ever complained about lack of comfort on the Tophy, hope that will be cured soon

Hello and welcome..... sorry to hear about your discomfort with the seat! Not something I have had a problem with with the UK seats....

As Coconut says, several threads on the go in here about different seat options.... take a look and ask if you can't find!

Check the Corbin site , they have a seat that should be much better than stock or the comfort . Lots of styles ,colors and materials to choose from and the price looks pretty good considering its from Corbin .
