Touratech Extra Low Seat

My GSA should be here any day now and I know I will need a lower seat. The Touratech Extra Low might be just what I need, but I've had no luck finding any reviews
on this seat.
I'm wondering how much comfort is lost with such a little amount of foam and how it will look with the stock rear seat. I'm less worried about the look, if it looks too bad, I'll just install a rack in it's place.

I had one on my old bike and found it better than the stock seat for comfort.

I didn't care for the one I tried on the previous GSA model. Was a ball cruncher; not comfortable. I didn't use it for long though. I think I put it up for sale the same day it arrived.

I've had the xtra low TT seat on my 09 GSA since new. 40,000 miles. It is hard as a rock, and very oddly shaped with that deep pocket that gets you lower. Somehow it works for me, and I have never installed the stock height Mayer seat I bought for comfort because it put me up too high, as did a Russell.

Because it is so low, your knees may be bent a lot if you have longish legs, so they do get a bit cramped on longer rides...

Also, because it is so hard, it holds up well, looks like the day I bought it.

BTW: it costs a lot of $$, but without it I don't think I would enjoy my GSA around town very much without being able to flat foot, especially when I ride it overloaded as I do so often.

So, that's my review, and I'm sticking to it.
