how gets the ass of your pillion after a 100 miles ride

For my wife our V-Strom is the most comfortable bike (regarding the seat) we have ever had. Even better than the Paneuropean!

Now I felt in love for the yellow 2010 Versys, we went to a Dealer and she says the seat is hard.

Does your pillion claims to have pain in the ass after a 100 miles ride? ...please

Home.
My wife does not enjoy rides longer than about an hour. So the range in your question is well outside my pillion's range.

Have you tried the Gel seat? Do you know if it makes a difference?

Yes, my pillion says the stock passenger seat is uncomfortable if too long.
Had add 1 inch of sponge and so far not too bad.

You should all grab tribo seat covers, pretty inexpensive and for the passenger not to slip in the seat makes a lot of difference, foam added or not

Thanks KIWI 41,
A wonderful country you have there! I would love to ride someday. Yes, my poetic prowess frightens even me some days. My girl wanted me to add that after our 200 mile slog up to Buena Vista from Colorado Springs (200 mile roundy) that for a time afterwards she was suffering from "no ass" this however, is open to debate on a multitude of levels and a subject best left undiscussed for health reasons...mainly mine
Cheers mate! and ride safe,
Rik

The longest trip I've taken with my wife has been about 3 to 3 1/2 hours. She hasn't complained yet.

An expensive fix is the Baldwin seat. I know that they will adjust the seat for the rider and the passenger. Not sure, but I'm guessing corbin does this also.
