Seems to me that the major factor in all this is rider's individual arse's   :745:

Not sure that's correct Mondeoman. The wife and I have very different arses and we both get on with the standard seat just fine. I've ridden bikes now for 50 years and never had anything as plush as this XD to sit on. She has never been a biker chick and would always choose a bar to sit at rather than a motorcycle. There's something more to it than the shape and mechanics of your bum.

GeofftheChef, I like the idea of your Tony Archer mod. That does sound like a practical solution and investment for getting more for less.

Maybe not arse's but weight is certainly an issue. My old Triumph Trophy wasn't the most comfortable of bikes to sit on, I lost  just under 3 stone over the winter, and the following spring it was like sitting on a completely different seat  :001:

One thing that might be a factor is that I put a lovely new Wilbers shock on the back and that is money well spent.

Hi.. was it the 640 wilbers you put on? I'm thinking of getting one. whats the difference it makes? Thanks in advance..

Just had my BMW R1150R Seats modified by Tony Archer. Think he is a bit swamped with work at the moment. Took over 3 weeks.
Long time to be without the bike when the weather has been so good.
