Oh, but a solution was just up the road at Dual Sport Touring in Friendsville, Tn. They can take your existing seat and build it just the way you want it. What I did was pick up an old seat on e-bay for $15 bucks, and let them use the stock seat pan to rebuild from scratch something that was wider and flatter. Basically something that you could sit on all day while riding back roads.
Francois and Megan delivered my new seat to me just before we started what was to be a 161 mile day of riding forest service roads, along with some asphalt sections. The difference between my new seat and the stock butt punisher was immeasurable. The only way I could have ridden 161 miles on the stock seat would be if I stood up for 100 miles. The key is the increased width. As you can see in the pictures, the "Sitting area" was increased from 4 1/2" to 9 1/2".
