After ten miles it felt like a seat in the bleachers at a poorly constructed stadium. After fifty miles there were a pair of 2x4s under me. One strapped beneath each buttock. 50 miles after that, someone stole my shocks. At a hundred and fifty miles you could put a pair of dimes under my cheeks and I could tell you whether they were "heads" or "tails." Ten more miles and I was revealing every trade secret and military code I had ever been exposed to. (I'd rather be waterboarded and forced to listen to all of Justin Bieber's hits.)

I am currently suing the manufacturer of this alleged "touring seat" because it violates my Constitutional right not to be subjected to "cruel and unusual punishments."

In 2009 I bought a sport touring motorcyle. As a touring bike, it has extra amenities to make it more comfortable for extended periods of time while traveling. The seat is a strip of plastic covered in about 2 inches of foam rubber and covered in vinyl. Which means it has about as much cushion as the banana seat I had on my bicycle when I was six. I weigh considerably more now than I did when I was 6, I am also considerably older. To call it comfortable is to assume you normally spend your days sitting on a 120 degree hot plate that is balanced on a fence post while borer beetles slowly burrow into your butt.

A bad touring seat is a device designed to block all blood circulation on the inside of one's thighs, causing discomfort and pain to the rider at an alarming increasing rate.
Day 2 is even worse as the recovery of Day 1 would take about a week!
Long distance riders are freaking masochists! :rotf:

Sitting on a rock on a HOT summers day ... Sticky & stuck on a vinyl kitchen chair ... Cramped into a position of which there is no way to wiggle the discomfort away .... That is what a seat that's not made for a touring bike feels like.
