Hi all from Philly,
Long time motorcycle rider, first time r nine T user here.
I rode it yesterday for 3.5hrs and it's obvious that I need a new seat. Anyone out there has any suggestions? I am not looking to get rid of the passenger seat, just a more comfortable ride for me and the wife.

Thank you

Art

Welcome Art,
gel insert helps, or have a look for Sargent seat option.

How are you sitting on the seat? When I picked my UrbanGS up I had to ride it home 150 miles and sat way too far back on the saddle, plus the bars were rotated way too low.

I had a sore butt, hips and triceps the next day. I raised the bars and make sure to remember to scootch forward on the seat so my crotch is pretty close to the tank and its made a huge difference in maneuvering and comfort.

Otherwise, look around for a local reupholsterer. Where I live we've got a guy who specializes in motorcycle seats (and tank pads) Larson Upholstery in Seattle (my account is too new to link). I'm sure there are specialists in the Phily area as well.

Greetings from Northern Ireland. Some people say its not changing the seat but the rear shock that makes all the difference with comfort.
