Better seat

Has anyone tried the Corbin seat for the XT250? I have a flat Corbin on my KLR and think it is great. But the seat for the XT250 is almost $400. So, I'd like some feedback before I buy. I rode several hundred miles in a few days last summer and got a sore bottom, so I think a better seat is in order.

I don't have a picture but here's a thread with a picture of my bike just before starting the Montana1000 last July. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showt...503890&page=43 I have Happy Trail racks with their tiny Imnaha boxes. I carried the sleeping bag and tent on top in nylon bags. The set up worked well once Shady Rascal sawed a board to fit across the seat and supported on either side by the Panniers. This supported the nylon bags. Without the board the bags sagged down and blocked air flow over the muffler. Without the airflow, the exhaust melted my tail light. Once I restored the airflow, all was well.
