OK....at the risk of getting beat-up again for a sincere comment regarding why some can love the saddle BUTT most seem to hate it.
( and I really meant no offense but....there ya go.)
Please to except my sincere
to any I may have offended.
Perhaps the love /hate saddle thing IS more a function of leg length...(I don't have any issue with the sliding thing either)...And position.
My thighs ride/ follow just below the bottom line of the side fairing (resting against the black under-trim) but not touching the fairing finish....and I sub-consciously/automatically hug the tank....which then makes me ponder that this riding posture keeps my butt where it belongs. (thighs closer to being parallel to the road than not and knees tucked into the bodywork).
If my legs wear shorter (I have a 35" inseam) then my legs would be 'straighter' which would affect the amount of natural leverage created by ones posture while in the saddle!?!
If my pegs were lower then perhaps I'd be sliding forward too!
Just a thought.......
One more thing, +++
regarding if your a new rider and your not used to the ergonomics of motorcycling. Get a thousand miles or so (guessing here BTW) under your belt before you pop for an expensive fix. (working yourself up to longer rides...if ya get my meaning).
And Yes, in the beginning...I had a sore butt! BUT, I figured it was nothing more than getting used to everything MOTO..like not riding a bicycle for a few years then getting back in to it (OUCH!!!!) until your 'sit' bones get used to being planted in a tiny racing saddle.
(and Howdy there right back at ya there Donn,
I sent you a PM).
