FWII, After reading much of this thread I decided to try a cheap fix for the first time. I ordered & now have received an Alaska Leathers seat cover. I got the deluxe full saddle sheared to 1" in black. Well, after a 280 mile test this past Saturday (high 50 degree farenheit temp), I would definitely say buy one if you can accept the looks and you want some improvement in comfort. It is not by any means a sudden iron butt saddle but, a very welcome improvement. I'll get a pic when I can & also another opinion after my wife has a chance to chime in after a 2-up ride. As an added bonus, it also fits just fine on my Triumph seat too & is easy enough to move from one bike to the other.
