Well, 20,000 miles later and the seats on my 02 are still AWESOME!!! Both are still in the same shape that they came back from MCC in. IMO, probably the best deal out there!!! Check them out if you want a huge improvement in riding comfort without taking a second mortgage :cool:

That's what's on my 2004LT. No photos needed the seat looks 100% stock. I have the softest memory foam installed on mine (they have five to choose from) $110 & re-used the stock vinyl. It feels much better than the Corbin seat that's on my 2000LT.

The only noticeable difference from stock to mine is that is IS thicker AND a lot more flat. The wife loves hers as well!!! Again, a great deal!!!

As much as I would love to support our friend Ron K Miller, who makes an AWESOME seat (I have ridden on them), money is sooooo tight right now, especially with an imminent clutch replacement and F & R spring replacements coming up. This option may not be as good as Ron's butt-aaahhhh seat but seems better than stock.

Thoughts? Save up for the real deal, or compromise with MCC?

Unless, Brother Ron, you want to donate one to the cause... me :rotf:

I don't have any experience with a BMW K1200LT seat sent to MCC, but I have a high end multi-layer memory foam MCC seat on my VTX1800. They were fantastic to deal with, fast, detail oriented and definitely great value. My wife loves the seat on the VTX, where she simply hated it before the MCC mods (and the rider seat was even worse - 50 miles and you were looking for the nearest place to pull over). I am super happy with my MCC seat on my VTX, as are hundreds of other VTX owners that I've seen and chatted with on the VTX Owners Association message boards.

I won't attampt to compare the two seats on my rides because it doesn't make sense based on the starting points and shapes being so different between the two bikes. What I do know is that MCC will customize a seat to your height, in-seam, front to rear position etc if they have experience with that particular model bike.

I've often considered modding my K1200LT (day-dreaming really) but it doesn't seem worth it right now when I'm basically OK with what I already have for the riding I do (I believe I have the soft seat on my K1200LT - it's noticably softer than my friends '02s and '03s). Now if I did not like the stock seat on my K1200LT, or was doing longer rides, I wouldn't hesitate to do it with MCC.

That's my 2 cents - hope it helps.
