If only it would dry out a little in Minnesota so I can give my seat a good try out. Took it out in the rain because I couldn't wait, much better than my stock seat. I should have gotten custom seats on all of the bikes I've owned. Even the Mick O Pegs are more comfortable because they raised the seat up. I totally can't wait for it to dry out a bit. The backrest makes a HUGE difference in comfort. Definitely would recommend a custom seat, whichever company you get it from.
