I've done 11 hours with no problems at all. But the Rally seat being 4cm higher and somewhat narrower than the OEM seat mandates a test ride before purchase. It requires a relatively delicate balance of rider weight and rider size to function. I'm 6'3" and relatively slim at 86kgs, while bigger blokes may truly suffer on such a high & slim perk.
