This thread punctuates how subjective motorcycle seat comfort is.
I've only had the seat concepts seat on my bike a few days, but I find it worlds better than the stock seat. I have a few 40 mile commutes on it so far, and those are the longest stretches so far so all day comfort has yet to be tested. However the stock seat annoyed me on that 40 mile commute.
I had raised the front of my stock seat, which definitely helped make it more tolerable, but certainly not truly comfortable to me. I believe for me the soft foam had as much to do with my discomfort as the angle/shape did. I'm a member of the over 200 lb club, so that could definitely play a part.
Others seem to be looking at moving the bars up and back with the seat concepts, I moved them forward and lower and am loving it. Feels much sportier to me, and being leaned forward a little for me makes any seat more comfortable. I feel my weight isn't pushing straight down my spine into my tailbone. It puts my sit bones in a slightly different angle too which is more comfortable, and they seem to get less pressure. I was considering lower pegs, but I have decided against it since I can feel the ridges of this seat in my thigh. Not a big deal, but if I lower my feet, then my upper leg will be at a steeper angle and the effect will be that I'll feel that ridge more. I get the same thing from my Corbin on my other bike and I assume it's because my legs are a bit shorter than the "average leg" the seat is truly designed for.
@ Mongoose....There is always the chance you got a dud. You may have just got a bad piece of foam with density issues. I read quite a few reviews on the SC seat, and there were certainly some negative ones, but i don't recall any describing the symptoms you're having.
