My ideal seat comfort mod would be a gas tank with a 'crotch dent' in it, so you wouldn't smash your 'nballs.

Yeah, there's a gel seat for my bike but I don't like it (swapped mine with a friend's so I could try it) and yes, they get VERY hot in the sun.

For me, the sheepskin turned out to be the best option for long rides. Anything under 400 miles I can do on the stock seat (but then again, I have a touring bike, not a sport bike).

I did have a gel seat on my SV when I had it, and I loved it. The biggest difference was that the gel seat was rounded off on the sides, whereas the OEM seat on the 03 SV had hard angles to it.

Maybe, dunno, I just let the guy do his thing and he didnt put foam.

Would like to know if that guy is local as well. I love my bike, on the trip to california nothing was uncomfortable except the seat, and it sucked! Bought a pillow and sat it on it halfway through the trip, it helped a lot, but still hurt. My friend had a corbin, and he wasnt all that impressed with it, but still way better than mine. I might try the sheepskin as well.

I have a beaded seat cover very similar to that one on my bike. I purchased it from Beadrider.com about a year ago.

I am a fairly short rider on a tall bike, so I was concerned about the added height. It didn't turn out to be an issue at all.

I did 1500 miles last weekend with no pain. I've done up to 1100 mile days with no pain at all. The beads are not overly slippery (no better or worse than the seat alone). They have not damaged the seat.

Why did I choose beaded over other options?

Custom seats are expensive and I already have an OEM low seat. Air pads are also expensive and require maintenance (inflation, patch kit). That left beads vs sheepskin.

I have both. The problem with the sheepskin is that it must be removed if it starts raining. I don't generally stop when it starts to rain because I'm usually already wearing waterproof gear (in winter) or enjoy the relief from the heat in summer when I'm wearing mesh. The sheepskin slowed me down and forced me to keep storage space free in my bags.

The beadrider can be left on at all times, rain/shine. It looks nerdy, but see my sig line. The sheepskin is collecting dust in a closet.
