Seating options

Does anyone have an aftermarket seat on their MV? I am looking for something that will make those longer rides a little easier on the back side. I have looked at corbin but they don't seem to have one for the MV. Or if anyone knows of a good way to improve the stock seat. Thanks in advance.

you can try to wear a cyclist pant under your trousers... That's what many endurance pilots do...

Have you checked with Sargent Saddles? I believe they will replace the foam and/or recover your stock seat base. I agree the stock seat is uncomfortable; the shape of mine makes it cut into the back of my thighs. Bike shorts are too thinly padded to make enough of a difference, in my opinion. Let us know what you find out!

I'm sending my seat to a local seat maker to save the seat a little and add gel to it. Right now if I ride further than two hours, my arse starts to hurt. I'll report back when I receive the finished product.

Personality is what you show of yourself daily.

Character is what comes out under adversity. (Think about that)

However; its amazing how your behind will adapt to the seat given enough
time and kilometers. This summer I travelled from Norway, through Germany Swizerland and Italy to the south of France in two days. All the luggage was shipped with the kids on the plane down, and my only luggage was in a small "hip pack" ( or whatever you call it...) Amazing also what a great tourer
the F41000 is.....

I rode my F4 750 3,200 miles over 5 days, CA to CT. Your ass does get used to the pain as long as your brain is having fun riding the MV. I also travel w/out luggage, only a small pack,the best way to travel for sure!

F4 Comfort

I have travelled many miles on sportsbikes and felt the pain! What is interesting to note is that most of the reviews on the F41000 seem to make a specific point on how hard or servere the ergos are... my experience is quite the opposite... its a sportsbike so take for granted that the design is restrictive, but compared with some Japanese litre sportsbikes, its quite acceptable. I mean if you want comfortable ride, buy a cruiser...
Plus with all that ajustability, its so much easier to have a good fit.
I agree with previous post....if your having fun, then the pain is not an issue!
