Try one of those imitation shearling covered gel pads from JC Whitney. The gel part slides into the faux shearling seat cover through a zipper in the back of the cover. They're cheap and they work ok. They're held in place with two inch-wide-or-so u-shaped clasps that fit underneath your seat edge and are snugged up to hold the pad in place. A large one is about $80. I've used one on my ST1100 and ridden a couple of 800 mile days with it. Not great but better than the stock seat and not a ton of money either.

IMHO, a largish "six" is easier to sit on, as the Ischial Tuberosities (forgive my spelling) don't pressure the skin so much with the extra padding.



My Triumph gel seat (for the Sprint) is ok, but living South of I-10, it gets "nucular" hot if I park in the sun too long. And, it doesn't cool down for a long while.

Dear Suzuki your new cruiser naming system sucks. None of us know which bike is which and this in on an Internet site dedicated to motorcycles. A letter plus a number just doesn't work unless your BMW.

Thank you.

Re: Man! I don't get no respect 'round here.

I just recently purchased a 06 M50 (gray if you must know). Of the 3 people who've been on it, I'm the only one who hasn't had a problem with the seat. Possibly due to my inexperience, causing me to worry about other things.

This is odd, due to the fact that I can't stay seated in a car, errr cage for very long without having great discomfort in my tail bone and lower back.

I may still get a gel seat, but only time will tell.
