Advice on a new seat

All,

Looking for some inputs. I've got a 2008 312R and don't know if I'm getting older or the seat is but it seems even more uncomfortable than usual this spring. Looking to upgrade the seats and wondering what others have installed and how you've liked them.

Any answers to this post..It's a painfully relevant question. I just did 500 F4 miles this weekend...

ask here:

no pussy ass 200 miles a day .....how about:

the Bun Burner Gold (1,500 miles in 24 hours)

10/10ths Challenge (10 consecutive 1,000 mile days)

I did an Iron Butt event on my Jota. Each to their own I guess but for me not the best use of fuel and effort....I like to take in the scenery at stop overs... Still 20 miles was a good run lol

ps Try the 10/10ths on the M6 Brum to Carlisle via Manchester You'd have 10 consecutive days of going fecking nowhere !

These distance challenges are all relative to the roads you are on..
