    Depends on how tall/heavy you are.

    If you are a bargearse you cant go past Day Long

    https://day-long.com/

    Or  Top Sellerie for UK Based

    If you want off the shelf then the Tourtech seat is pretty good. Max Weight 120kg

    Well, I just ordered a Top Sellerie (heated and raised) seat for my CT.  I'm anxious to get it and try it out. Many riders on this forum favored the seat. I hope it will improve the ride. I love mostly everything on the Ct but I have been struggling with the seat comfort.

     I have just sent my standard seat to Tony Archer. I am having 2" of extra foam added and recovered. Cost is £80 excluding post. So I guess about £105 all up.

    He made a fantastic job on my R1150r doing a similar mod. That seat is so much better now.

    So I will report back when I have the seat fitted and I have ridden it a bit.

    Hopefully, will be able to ride at least 100 miles without feeling the effects.

    Funny thing seats. If you got a fat arse and wear padded leather trousers you are probably OK. I ain't got either.
