For anyone that can't stand the stock seat and are contemplating gambling on an aftermarket seat, I highly recommend trying an Airhawk first!
I wish I had found this bit of knowledge two years ago. I went the Renazco route and for me, it was less comfortable than stock. I sold it a few months back and the new owner is saying it's not comfortable for more than 90 minutes. What a shame as they have such a great reputation for building excellent seats. I picked up a Touratech standard and it's better than stock, but doesn't come anywhere near close to the comfort of my Airhawk for long distance riding. While I'd still love to have a comfy do-everything seat, I'm done with mail order custom seats.
