Hi Mike,

I too found the stock, heated, low-height seat uncomfortable on lengthy rides. After a friend loaned me his Comfort Seat to try out for several weeks, I was impressed enough with the improvement that I bought my own Comfort rider seat. Last year I took a 95-day, 21K-mile tour around North America with that seat and got along quite well with it. Other Trophy riders have bought custom seats and seem to be satisfied. The Comfort Seat is much less expensive than other options, such as the Corbin saddle.

I bought one, used it a couple of times but still not comfortable enough.  I went with the Russell Day long seat and love it.  Still have it if anyone is interested.

Thanks for the heads up, i ordered that Comfort seat from Ebay...excellent service- with my 30 inch inseam it seems tall but I look forward the road test...The low version worked for about 2 hours then I was noticing discomfort..

For me "noticing discomfort" is an understatement! It was more like, let's see...........a MAJOR pain in the ass! I have ordered my Corbin saddle with the "nose job" Modification......
