After the first 500 miles in the last 3 weeks on mine(Merry X-mas to me), I agree. All signs (threads and posts) are leading me to a Sargent. I appreciate all the info from those in the know.

I just picked up a 2010 F800gs 30th Anniversary Edition in Los Angeles. Like a couple of you said, A$$ bleeding within minutes! Threw down 443 miles split into 2 days. Is the Renazco the way to go? I've also been looking at the Touratech comfort seats. Thoughts???

Seats are a very biased item. Some works for some people, but not for others. I have tried three Renazco's but gave up all three. That is not really James fault, as the shape is really good. First one was with suede leather on top, but in the desert it dried quick and had to be conditioned, but was stiff because of that, and did not conform well. the second two was foam, and purely my fault. James uses memory foam on the top, and I simply dont like that feel. I get it that is me, so as many enjoy their Renazco, I had to let them go. I have tried the rally seat, did not work because of how thin it was.
Then there was the seat concept. Their foam is great but as I had their tall seat, it got very narrow up front. So it is really up to what you like. None of the seats I mentioned, are bad. In fact they are great, but did not work well for me.
If I had to make the perfect seat, I would have say seat concept make the cover, and supply a foam bloc, and I would trim it my self. This way I get excactly what I want, or need.

I have a Seat Concept cover. I ordered softer foam, with the goal, coupled with some suspension changes to lower the bike.

It felt good until I did some back to back 1,000 mile pavement runs. I got butt burn within 200 miles.

Part of my problem was having Giant loop luggage that locked me into place.

The stock seat and my Seat Concept is narrow in the front which allows us short legged riders to touch the ground at stops.

That's an issue that should be considered when ordering an aftermarket seat.

Coming from an R1, the F800GS seat feels like sitting on a cloud. I had to check with the dealer to make sure it was actually the stock seat it felt so soft.

Thin Blue Line Seats

I have a 09 f800gs and I took the stock seat and turned it into a 600 plus mile a day saddle. I am a law enforcement officer and have ridden bikes all my life. I build dual sport seats as a side job. Usually costs around $225-$250. The end product will rival the comfort of a Russell day long. I know this because I have formerly owned 3 Russell day long saddles. I do this to any bike from CRF 450's to a Vstrom. I cut and dish original foam, add a dense bonded foam making the seat up to 8" wider than stock( depending on what the customer wants), then reshape, and recover. Just send me your seat. Contact me if your interested. I can email Pix. 828-736-2472.

My stock seat doesn't suck my balls when I'm riding. Was that an optional accessory with the stock seat ?
