Seat Question

What are my options? Corbin, I know, but at roughly $250.00, pretty pricey, PLUS, I have sat on a 1KRR with one, and I dont like the way it wraps you in. Seems to limit gettin off the seat some. What are other options to inprove comfort on my weekend rides? Cuz after about 3 hours all I wanna do is get the off the bike.

I have searched seats, gel seats, etc and am not finding much, if anything, for my 06 1KRR.

Tks.

get a used seat on freebay and pad it yourself.

the busa padding is nice. and you can still slide but not as easily. you will find out Sunday.

all corbins I have seen r bowl shaped for comfort.
