It's weird. I've never had (or even felt the NEED for) an aftermarket seat until I bought a Vulcan 900, that stock seat is a torture device. Since then I've bought aftermarket seats for my Versys and Harley Sportster. All three have been significantly better, but all three have felt VERY awkward for the first couple hundred miles. They all felt like they were gonna roll off the bike. I see a lot of mixed reviews concerning the Corbins on Versys's (Versi?) but I'm loving mine. Getting it "used" for $125 makes it that much better.
