    Hi everyone, I picked up my Sled a few weeks ago, - it's the faster red one!
    At 6'3" it's nice to have a bike that I don't feel too big for. I was wondering if the comfort
    seat would fit but could find nothing online or from my Ducati dealer but figured if
    some of the other seats fit then the comfort seat should also. It fits, and I like it even more!
    It no longer has the dip so you can move wherever you want and you don't feel like you are
    sitting in the wrong spot.

    I ordered one too yesterday, I also want to get rid of the dip (although I'm not really tall at 5'10").

    But yeah, pics are mandatory mate!

    Woot woot!

    What would you judge the added seat height is?

    They say it's 25 mm, so about an inch. I could tell a difference in my mirror views but I didn't have to adjust.
    It looks like they add a strip to the stock seat material rather than cutting all new vinyl.

    I'm really wanting something cushier - suffering from deficient glute syndrom. Is is substantially more comfortable?

    It's really just more of the same firm foam, not very cushy. After years of thinking the seat I was on was not very comfortable,
    I figured out it was me. Just can't sit for more than maybe an hour on any bike, the couch or car! No need to ever try an
    iron butt ride, ain't gonna happen! I do stand up frequently while riding, keeps me going for another 15 min.
    Too soft of a seat can be uncomfortable also.

    You've never owned a DR650. Lol. The stock DS seat is at least 1000x more comfy.

    We've become wussies...

    I think one of the main issues I have is with the slope. I do not typically like to sit in the cradle/dip as I feel rather scrunched. Sometimes, I will slide way back, and that is decent esp. on freeway cruising. However, I find myself wanting to sit in the middle, and the downward slope is pushing my ass tissue upward, which is what is making for the discomfort. In this regard, the comfort seat does seem appealing, (but at stop lights I do like to sit in the cradle for its lower height).
    Hmm, this Corsa Moto seat is flat and has a gel padding:

    Looks good with that horizontal line in the paneling!

    That corsa moto seat is the one I have on my Sixty2. Yes it's better than stock and sits about 1" higher. I do like that it allows me to move around while riding. But no it is not a cure.
