I just bought an 07 109 really like it but the wife isn't as happy with the back seat as I hoped. I see several or you say you have the Suzuki Gel seat. How do you like it? Is if worth trying or would I be better off spending the big bucks on one of the aftermarket brands?:dontknow:
Thanks for any info!

The Suzuki Gel seats are nice...passenger seat is substantially thicker & the carbon fiber looks good...full cut is nice 4 taller riders with 2" pull back risers & highway fotrests...price is good too.

my wife said there was a huge difference between the stock and the gel seat.

After about 20 minutes on our first ride my wife made me stop, the stock seat was that bad. After we put on the gel seats she could easily ride for a couple hours.

But there's a better fix. Get her own bike. :D

FYI Oneida's got them, if you can get the damn ordering system to work. Everyone else carbon fiber full cut is on back order. Just a heads up! Looks like a custom may be coming sooner than I thought!

Im going in weds morning the 9th and they are going to custom fit it to me then sew it up. Last saturday when I was there they had about 20 bikes there getting seats custom fitted to the riders. I will take lots of picks and post them.

I've had mine on for a couple of years now, for the price I think it's well worth it. I used to start squirming after a bout 45min on the stock but could go considerably longer before taking a break.

I got a set of the suzuki gels, I got the full cut. The wife likes the rear seat. I am about to get a set of Corbin's though. I want to take the sissy bar off and the Corbin's integrate the sissy bar into the rear seat. I might have a pretty good deal on some gels and sissy bar soon.

I just might be interested in those gel seats. PM me if you really do want to sell them.
