Yes. Love it. Selling my stock low seat because the comfort seat is excellent.

See below. If linking to this other forum isn't allowed, my apologies.

Very good especially for the pillion. Quite higher than the stock one. I keep the standard one of road because it's easier to move backaward and it is lower (I'm 1,77 and I nearly flat foot with the standard seat).

Thanks for the replies. I'd really like to sit on one before purchasing but that's probably not going to hapen. I tried the Sargent touring seat when it first came out but the location of the pocket just didn't work for me so this the comfort seat may or may not have the same issue.

$480CAD with a %15 discount in Calgary. Just finished a 1200km ride with it. Love it Love it. No sore butt at all. Way better than bleeding with the stock one.

I must say that all of the French riders i know and who owns that seat are very happy with it (I did open a thread http://f800-bmw.1fr1.net/accessoires...800gs-t466.htmon that subject on the french F800GS forum)

Here in France its price is 230€ which make it competitive to other non-OEM products on the market.

I asked my dealer if they had a comfort seat I could look at and he tried to talk me into a sergeant seat. Both are close in price.

Anybody have experience with the sergeant vs comfort seat?

I had both seats and ended up keeping the Sargent. The Comfort seat just made me feel like i was locked into one position against the hard step in the seat. I think the passenger would like the Comfort seat better as that section seems to be a bit larger. I don't think that the Comfort seat was as slick feeling as the Sargent. If I were to do it over again I would look at a different cover material for the Sargent (which they offer) to cut down on the sliding forward problem.

Sargent- returned "sliding forward problem"
Corbin - sold "to wide in the front area when one puts their feet on the road (stopping) and the "lounger appearance" looks bad"
BMW Comfort - I would love to try!
