^^^it just makes me wonder if modern bikes are tested as thoroughly as the manufacturers suggest.

they build engines that can run on feces mixed with gasoline, and substitute baby food for synthetic motor oil in a pinch...but can they build a seat that will not make the rider beg for death? i'm still waiting. oh wait, it was that crossbones. it pisses me off that that seat was on a bike that uses bottlecaps for brake pads and has the leaning abilities of the Giza Pyramids. don't get me wrong, it was a fun ride. i just know that we sacrifice our gluteus maximi for no other reason than to appease the bean counters...when i am at this point willing to have $1000 added to the msrp of every new motorcycle in the world if it means a comfortable seat.
