New owner, sore bum!

Hello Everyone!

I've been getting to know my new (to me) 899 over the weekend... it's awesome :P However it has the race seat, great for it's intended purpose, but not so much for extended runs that I'll mostly be doing. Does anyone fancy swapping for a comfort seat?

Anyway, here she is, looking forward to reading more of the forums

Thanks from tinus675

Sissi! And welcome to THE Panigale forum.
Train your butt :-)
Thanks for the picture, I'm pretty shocked about the missing chicken strips on your rear tire..

The comfort seat is the same thickness/profile as race seat just with different surface.
The Stock is worse.

i found it the other way, stock seat was horrible, race seat is best.

Surely the comfort seat is a softer compound? My butt is literally bruised :O
I'll see if they have one I can try at the dealer.

race seat

Race seat more foam but its firm. You have to get used to it and the narrow knee area IMO
