Astech seats are located in Jonesboro, Illinois. They specialise in seat modifications using all American foam and gel products. I'm currently inquiring via email about firming up my '05 BMW "soft touch" rider's seat and they appear to be familiar with the problems with the stock configuration (too soft, wrong shape, too narrow etc). Does anyone actually have a reworked seat from them ? And if so, I would welcome comments etc, as once I commit to the change there's vitually no going back, and Tasmania is a lonnng way from Illinois.
