New Seat Concepts (Mold) for 690 2012/13

I picked up a new seat from Seat Concepts 12 days ago. A just released 2012/13. It is not as wide aft and is NOT 15mm lower.

I've got about 300 miles on it: 200 asphalt, 100 intermediate dirt.

VERY noticeable on Fwy (better) as it eliminates a lot of vibration as the foam interacts with the road vibrations more softly (muted). My butt doesn't remind me I've been riding as early: stock = about 75 minutes; Seat Concepts around 150 minutes. When I hit something hard on dirt I push into the Seat Concepts, on stock, it was more of a soft jolt: impact telegraphed through the foam.

I'm super happy I made the upgrade, and price was noteworthy compared to the other brands.
