My suspension has been set up by Ohlins, I guess the settings are too hard. I'm surprised that the difference between comfort seat and race seat is only the covering. I have a big trip planned this weekend, fingers crossed my butt can be trained

Has anyone tried one of those AirHawk things on for a long ride?

Took 1199 base out on test ride some years back, it was like concrete! Bought an 1199 base had the suspension set up and it was a very comfortable ride

Soft ends up hurting just as much if not more in the long run. Only way to get used to it is to ride. Your butt will adapt. Trust me on this one.

I Ride: 1299S
The DP race seat is much firmer. I switched out my stock seat on the 1299 because I wanted the grippy seat material and the added leg room.

After the first 5 hour ride my bum was so sore I had trouble sitting down. I'm hoping I'll get used to the ass beating because the added leg room and grip is worth it.
