    Hi, If you chanced to a comfort seat was there a marked difference to a normal seat?

    Thanks.

    The best way for me to describe my seat experience is that the stock US seat was a 2 hour seat, the comfort seat on the other hand is an 8 hour seat.

    That's a hard question to answer as I think it really depends upon the individual. In my case the stock "low rider" seat was a ball buster after a few hours but I still managed to do an 8 hour trip with it. The next step for me was the "comfort" seat because I had heard so many good things about it on this forum. After about the same two hours I was once again squirming in pain in my seat...only this time it was more towards the tailbone area and lower butt. I did a four day 2,000 km trip with the "comfort" seat and thought never again. I then moved to a Russell Day Long seat and the difference was amazing. I can truly ride all day now completely pain free. It's like sitting in my car seat. Life with the TTSE is once again very good.  :028:

    I agree also. Comfort seat plus AirHawk equals a comfortable day long ride. The comfort seat on its own 2-3 hours.

    The low rider seat with my Airhawk is an all day seat for me.  I would like to get a little more height but it is not a deal breaker at this time.

    Currently on a ride diagonally across the US & back. Pleased with the Comfort Seat. But, I am not going to lie about it. My back-side is sore at the end of an 8 to 10 hour ride. I think with that kind of a day any Seat is going to make you sore just a Mather of how sore. If anyone is interested in my Low Rider Seat it is now for sale. :152:

    Wanted to add my $.02.  I recently had my low seat redone by Russel Day Long.  The difference is amazing.  The comfort during 200+ mile trip recently was remarkable.  No butt fatigue at all!  The additional inch did make a difference.  I changed the links to the Lust links bought off a fellow member (thanks Donk) https://www.triumph-trophy.com/Smileys/light/821.gif This simple change has made the bike the best ever!
