Does anyone one else get numbness in the gentlemans area after half an hour or so of riding, or is it just me. I have bought the factory gel seat which arrived last week went for a ride about 1.5 hours long on the weekend and it was better, the only down side is it lowers the seat height a bit. Im 190cm tall so like the tall seat. Was thinking of getting the original seat refoamed or something anyone had any success in this area.

Look for my Renazco seat thread. It really works well for long rides.

Simple solution for the DD seat comfort problem. Stop every half hour !! The seats are a nightmare for comfort. I had nearly 4 1/2 hours on one riding to the TT. Saved having a vasectomy and I'm now called Louise !

I read one test rider who described the seat as "like wearing a metal thong".Since you don't have a problem with how tall the seat is any auto upholsterer should be able to make you a seat you could tour on all day in comfort.It's not just you. I get the same thing.I haven't lost anything yet but so no bearded lady syndrome but I have come home real tingly a few times.The longer rides on smooth roads seem the worse.The front end can beat you up on bumpy roads add a few K of turns and I guess it keeps the blood flowing.My fix is more stops for coffee which also gives me a chance to show of the bike...
