Seat recommendations for riding two up on F800GS

The stock seat is fine when it's just me but a little uncomfortable for riding two up. My wife and I rode to Americade in Lake George, NY over the weekend (about two hours). She had to keep scooting back in the seat due to the angle. We plan on doing longer two-up rides so I'd like to get a seat that is flatter. I've looked at the Corbin and Sargent

Does anyone have any experience with these or other seats on long rides. I'm 6'2" and like a high seat. My wife is 5'2" so a higher/stepped up passenger seat like the GS1200 has would be nice.

Thanks in advance for the info/experience!

Love my Corbin for long trips but no experience of 2-up.

It's not stepped, but my girlfriend and I both love my Sargent Enduro seat. We've both ridden on it for 4-6 hours at a time, and had no issues.

My wife has ridden several times on the back of my F800GS. I have the Touratech breathable 'standard height" seat. I have asked her how the ride feels compared to my ZRX 1200. She says the seat is more comfortable and she doesn't feel like she is sliding ahead like she does on the Kawi. oclv

Mini bump.

I'm curious about the Sargent touring seat as well for the same purpose, but haven't been able to find a lot of people who have much to say about 2-up.
