Sore Butt

I think the GPZ seat is one of the worst stock seats I've ever put a cheek 
on. The Sargent is better (I have one) and still looks like a seat. I don't 
like the Corbin because of the "bucket" that limits your ability to change 
positions on a long ride. You could cover your seat in sheepskin but that's 
just wrong on so many levels ;^) Then there's the Russell Day-long that's 
very comfy but looks like you mounted a Lazyboy to your bike. Pays your 
money and takes your choice.
