I'm not sure about a lower seat. I think that might feel cramped over a few hours. I wouldn't mind something 1/2-3/4" higher as long as I could get rid of that darned scoop.
For whatever reason, a lot of makers think scooped seats are the way to go. There were very few bikes that I tried at the show that felt as though they'd be comfortable over a long day of riding. One LOOK at the F800GT and I was in love. One SIT on the F800GT and I was a single man once again.
