They make a good argument, but I don't know anyone personally who is riding their seat.
Search Kontourseat on this site - in Equipment - and you'll get the picture... just sayin'

I tried a decent (100 mile'ish) ride with my "crusiser medium" airhawk from an old bike and was not happy. The front of the airhawk pushes against "the boys" creating a bit of a "cramped" feeling down there. Things were a bit more cushioned, but at least with the cruiser medium airhawk the "under pressure" routine negated any comfort benefit.

One inch of memory foam....great stuff!!

I had the seat on my 800 GS done by a guy that did my '08 KLR seat. He simply took off the existing cover...cut the foam down an inch and replaced it with memory foam...and then reapplied the seat cover.
He gave me the foam he cut out and it is hard as hell and is dome shaped.
I put it on my bike and sat on it today. You sit "into" the seat and it feels much better due to the fact that the seat is flat. I think this will stop me from moving forward and crushing my "aging" reproduction parts.
I will ride it tomorrow and let you know how I like it. I did not want to lower it or cut the front out due to the fact that I did not want to loose any leg room.
I have purchased a set of lowering pegs from Suburban to drop the pegs about 1.5 inches to give my right "gimpy" leg some extra room.

are there any dual bikes that come with comfortable seats stock? My klr seat is burtal even after i had it refitted. I thought surely the BMW bike would come already comfortable.

I've considered some lowered pegs, but due to the non-adjustable brake pedal, I wasn't sure that would be a good idea...

Cool2 BMW F800GS seat

Who has changed their stock (rock hard) seat, and to what? Is the BMW rally seat really worth the $371 asking price? Is there an alternative?? Thanks!

I have the Touratech touring low seat and love it. I am almost 5'11 and not only can I reach the ground better, but the seat is very comfortable for long rides. The tailbone pain I was getting with original seat has vanished. Yes, it is an expensive seat, but well worth it from my experience.

At 5'11" aren't you're legs a little cramped with a low seat? What's your inseam measure?

I had Tim Hamblin (The Awning Guy company) from Seymour,IN modify my seat. I like it better than any custom I've seen.
