Bike(s):
07 Ducati, 99 Busa









I have, and still own most of the bikes listed, and they are not very comfortable fo sho, but they do rock, I have ridden almost 1000 miles on a 916 in 1 day and have to say I wont do that again, but not sure I would do that on any sportbike. The busas are very comfortable and less maint, the Ducs are thoroughbreads, basically race bikes with lights, so not really made to stack up miles, but the ST series are sport tourers and are more comfortable, Corbin seats make them better also, my 999 was actually quite nice

Me and Mr. Richards both can put our 2 cents in about the duc 1098. For me is was WAY uncomfortable. The tank will straight up de-ball you and the seat has to be one of the hardest ive ever sat on. And on top of all that it does get worse, with the 1098s tri and race package the exuahst will straight up cook your so the point it actually can hurt at some stop lights. But the sound, the looks, and the looks you get from ppl......... priceless

Haven't ridden a ducati, but to date CBRs have the worst seats I've ever been on. If you're saying its less comfortable than you're CBR I'm avoiding ducati.

I know the old 916/996/998 bikes were TERRIBLE on the wrists, but everything I've read says the 999 and 1098 bikes are a little more relaxed.

Make no mistake about it Ducati seats are not comfortable. But a Corbin seat does help alot, Its still not gonna be a couch. but if U wanna sit on a couch stay at home while we ride. A lot of race bikes have NO or very little padding, and as said before these are basically race bikes with lights, they are not meant for touring, My busa is prolly the most comfortable sport bike I,ve ridden, If I had only 1 bike it would prolly be a busa, they are great all around bikes, people knock them but they are great bikes, No they arent gonna turn as fast as a 600ss. but they are great and can turn fast laps, dragstrip or roadcourse, can tour on them and are comfortable for passengers and good wind protection, and still get close to 50 mpg, how many other bikes can do so many things so well?

dude, simmer. I'm looking strictly for a commuter bike. I have a trackbike, and I don't tour.
