    Oh, the ergo-seat is an inch taller, not really what I'm looking for. I'm 5'10", just wishing for a more plush seat and perhaps 1-1.5" up&back on the bars. I think Versys would present me with significantly worse problems in other regards (bike height, width, weight). Ninja isn't too bad, just need a break after ~75 minutes though, seat is a bit tough. Want something with progressive foam density, it's not magic ... everything is made from unforgiving stiff gel it seems like these days. Must be cheap to manufacture.

    Cheap foam for sure it seems.. Spencer at Great Day to Ride said he uses Supracor. He actually wants pics of me on the bike to get an idea how I sit to best modify the seat. He seems thorough which I like and I am sure that trickles down to the quality of his work overall. I am curious to see how the Supracor compares with the Ergo. I am planning to do both.

    Got the seat yesterday.. I like it! I am surprised how big a difference the additional height really makes. Even if only an inch (that's what she said). I am a bigger guy I and do feel more comfortable not only in overall riding position but my butt as well. For $175 I would encourage those thinking about trying it to do so. Here are some pics.. The seat is more bulky than the stock one of course. Still looks great and does not appear to not "fit" the bike. I report back after I get more breakin time with it.

    I have ridden on Corbin seats/ saddles since the early 90's and their customer service is great. I rode my "basically stock" Better grips, cruise control laminar lip windshield addition and a Standard Corbin Gunfighter Solo seat on my 99' & 05' ZRX1100 & 1200R and My 01' ZR7S with a Corbin Gunfighter & Lady seat are lower and more "roomy" with excellent "Butt contour. I have ridden literally hundreds of thousands of miles in perfect comfort in the saddle. No Monkey Butt or the dreaded butt burn. Worth every cent IMHO. I'm 6ft. 1in and long legs.

    So my ride is often about 200 miles of twisty country roads, before I got the seats my butt will be sore and knees would be in pain after I'm done, this new seat solved these problems. It also made my riding position slightly more aggressive which is great for how I ride yet no more pressure on my back or wrists. Worked out great for me.
