    Comfort Seat versus Russell Day-Long

    Question?

    I have a 2014 SE, love it!  Not so crazy about the low rider seat for long distances, have issues with rides under 2-3 hrs when using my Air Hawk pneumatic seat pad.  Anything under that time frame is creates no issues for me.

    Does the Comfort Seat provide a meaningful upgrade in long distance comfort or is a Russell Day-Long the better long term solution.  I recognize the price difference and I am also trying to be practical.

    The comfort seat was a good improvement, the RDL was a bigger improvement.
    Not sure you can find a comfort seat.   I used mine for the RDL.
    Good Luck.

    The RDL is practical.  You practically forget how bad your butt used to feel before getting the RDL.  The RDL only hurts once, but feels good as soon as it is paid for! :002:

    The more that I ride my SE, the more that I respect the RDL  seats that were on my bimmer.
    I guess that I'll be keeping my eyes open for any used ones that pop up.
    I realize that they a custom tailored to the purchaser's weight, but I'm probably pretty "average" in my weight. So, most will suit me & be better than the current oem seat.

    The best investment that I've made in my Trophy has been the RDL, hands down.

    Garb,

    I have tried a number of seats on my Trophy (2013) and my Explorer (2015).  The best seats I have found for long distance have been the Corbin.  They are somewhat firm but support my bottom perfectly.  I use an airhawk if I am going to be in the saddle for more than 5 hours.  Just my two cents.

    Ride Safe,

    ZShyster

    Since I first posted on this thread I have completed some long trips.  I went from
    Scottsdale, AZ to Winnemucca NV (780 miles and about 12 hours) on the RDL.  After stopping for dinner in Winnemucca I contemplated pushing on to Boise, Idaho (another 250 miles and 4 hours).  I decided against it because of the lack of accommodations between the two locations if I got tired. 

    In the past my sore butt would have dictated when I got off the bike.  This is by far the most comfortable seat I have ever ridden a distance on.  Of course, every booty is different.  Mine happens to be in the 50ís and has been falling off for the last few years. :001:

    I took two days to going the opposite way, from Winnemucca, NV to Chandler, AZ on the standard seat (I stopped in Las Vegas).
