Thanks for the picture, I'm pretty shocked about the missing chicken strips on your rear tire..
PA has been his butt 'trained' for a long time. His coach is ARSEHAMMER.
Thanks from Prince Albert

I had the same problem. The comfort seat helped a bit, but having my suspension setup made a night/day difference.

Congrats on the 899 and welcome to the forum. For me the comfort seat was the way to go as it eliminated the prison bum.

Edit: Just to clarify, I went from the stock seat to comfort seat and did a 2000 mile trip with it and my bum faired pretty well.

I still remember doing a full day ride shortly after getting my 1199 with the stock seat(which is actually worse than the 899 stock seat.)

TERRIBLE

The comfort seat was a night and day difference.

Er... Comfort seat = Race set. What covers it isn't going to help.

So, those that miss the part where he mentions he has the race seat and saying what a great job the comfort seat does is totally misleading the OP.

Yes, both the comfort & race seat is a great improvement over the stock seat from the 1199 era and a good improvement over the 899/1299 change. But if he's complaining about the race set the comfort seat is not going to help.

on my 1299, I went with Luimoto seat cover and gel insert. I sent my seat to them and had it done. It absolutely rocks and was worth the $$$ and it looks fantastic. Excellent customer service.

Problem is youve not spent enough time on the stock seat lol Get a stock seat and ride for an hour or so and you'll thank god for the race/comfort seat.
