I fully support your experience in that when I first put the seat on I was not amazed! It was better than the stock seat and even the bmw rally seat but I was still not overly impressed. Then I put some miles on it, it definitely had a break in period and I have hit a point where it is great. The biggest issue I was having is that my ischial tuberosities (major contact point for moto seats) were taking a beating on the other seats and I never had that occur with the renazco seat. This is usually the pain people talk about. But everyone has a different shape to their posterior so it is not a magic cure all for the bike. I am in the process of making an add on to this great seat for serious mileage. Essentially it will be a strap secured seat enhancer that will make the seat platform larger and eliminate the small depression, it will be able to come off easily etc... When I get a good product put together I will post pictures.
