To sit with comfort

I ride a lot, long days and many miles on varied bikes


But the ATAS is the worst I have, makes my CRF250L seem plush


What have you done to your seat either in or on


Cheers

Enjoy an Adventure

Search out a good sargent seat, I used to only be able to do 2 hrs on my ATAS before it became butt clinchingly painful, 3hrs plus now and getting better as my seat gets worn in, expensive but worth it,just toured the west coast uk and 5hrs to get home no problem ....

Everyone has a different butt. The original AT seat was a perineum killer for me. Went with a Sargent Performance Plus with heat option. The center channel cutout makes all the difference.

I loved my 2013 CRF250L which I sold when buying the ATAS - but it's seat was far from plush.

I am pleased for you. Having a Street Triple and 250L and coming off the Crosstourer plus many before, this one is bad.


Maybe it will bed in as new now, but really I do ride all day and this one spoils any fun

Enjoy an Adventure

Two recommendations for Sargeant seat and one for the Airhawk pad.


Any thoughts on a decent sheep skin option?


Anybody used memory foam?
