    Hi All

    Are the gel seats worth the money and who have others used when purchasing custom seats?

    On my previous bike (VTEC) i had a gel seat.... never again.
    For the CT i just ordered a Topsellerie comfort seat without gel.
    Gel is nice and comfortable but when you have a nice ride on a sunny day and you park your bike for a cup of coffee or lunch and there is no shade the gel gets really hot.
    Hot to the point you can't sit on it sometimes and it stays hot for a long time making it the opposite of what you want, very uncomfortable  :827:

    Ray can you do a report with pics when you get it please.
    I'm looking at seats for mine at the moment.
    There's a lot of designs out there but not enough pics of them on the bike.

    Until we are all the same size and weight its always going to be tricky getting a seat right! The NC750 owners also complained.Usually about hardness ,as the height was less ,or the "sliding towards  the tank" with male equipment!but it seems like a normal Honda complaint.Is it that our oriental friends are on average smaller ,lighter - the same is said about German cars -the seats are certainly stiffer than the French ones.
    i have had the sheepskin -on a 1st series Africa Twin and various seats over many years biking .Still it gives the upholsterers a living!

    I agree that the seat is not built for comfort, I looked at several options myself and the cost but then read about what Cyclists might do. I went to Halfords and looked at Gel cycling shorts as they say the rest is history, yes feels strange at first but on long journeys I’ve never looked back.
