No takers, really? If I don't sell it there's always the chance I'll end up attaching it to another V and I've already bought and sold 3 '08s.....nicest bike I never seem to ever stay with. Lowered to $300 plus shipping, if no takers I'll just tuck it away.....
My major beef with the stock seat is the forward slope. Does this Gel seat cure it ?? I don't find the stock seat too high, but I'm 6 in my socks.
When I bought one to see if my wife could ride my Versys (vertically challenged), I remember it being much flatter than the stock seat. So IMO, no it did not slope into the tank. Also the material is a bit more grip than the stock material.
After my wife was still unable to ride it, I sold mine. Hope this helps!
