Gel Seat

I've been riding on this for 3 months now and I am a very happy camper. I had a Gel Pad custom installed and the edges which digs into your thighs rounded off. The company who did it was Kno Place Upholstery Co. (PM me if you what their email). It cost $180 including return shipping and recovering the seat. The only downside is that the seat is heavier than the stock seat and that the vinyl isn't as black as the stock seat (kind of dark gray). I was going to either recover it or paint it with vinyl paint but I kind of got used to the color and it doesn't bother me that much anymore.

I'm not going to say that the gel pad makes your Brutale a couch but it does help tremendously.

Nope, I like it Red. Thanks for the comments. I'm sure the Emoto's one will be just as good.
