    Anything even a plank of wood is better......

    I got a granny pad at wallyworld and strapped it to the seat, I can last around 3 hours on the bike now.

    Did 140 mile rideout on my 2010 GS last week. It was more uncomfortable than my fireblade i p/x'd it in for.

    Would love some suggestions as i'm off to Belgium next month!!

    I got an airhawk. Good thing is if you change bike you just take it off,if you have more than one bike swap it across.

    Hi Honyam,

    To deal with the GS' uncormfortable and hard seat, I initially got an Airhawk seat which works well. I recently bought a BMW dual comfort seat and it makes a huge difference, also when accelerating

    Seems like almost everyone is complaining about the GS' OEM seat - it is about time that BMW offer the dual comfort seat as an option at no charge when purchasing a new bike (bet they then will be sitting with tons of OEM seats!)

    Regards

    ..just reached 2k mi. on the new saddle/ride it breaks in after about 1500mi. or my butt is numb like my face from smiling for a month.
    Seriously, though I'm 5'8" so a different seat has me wondering if i'll miss the flat saddle vs. a more Corbin'ish like my R850R couch seat when roustabout off-road.
    I'm about 70/30 onroad/offroad for now.
    Like you guys a more comfy seat has been on my mind- but maybe after crashbars and handguards for me.
    The F800 is my first dirty bike so fun taming this beast
    - F800GS ahh Corbin, miss r850r no more..well the color
    96' - BMW R850R will miss that seat! -sold to get GS-
