Ashamed to say Yamaha TX 750.

Why anyone would put an all day comfortable seat on a bike that was prone to hand-grenading well before your butt went numb, god know, but that's life I guess.

Exactly this. Something about that bike really appeals to me.

Hmm, no Aprilia Futura? I always heard they were so comfy, especially the seat. It felt really good in the showroom for those 2-3 minutes...

Sat on a Gold Wing and it was fantastic. But as soon as I tipped the bike up off the stand, I knew it felt too heavy for me. YMMV.

BMW K1600GTL had a comfy seat, and felt light enough on a test ride that I believe it would have been a fantastic bike. Just a little outside my price range, though.

HD Electra Glide was very nice.

Victory (I forget which model) was also very nice.

The best seat I've ever sat on has been the stocker on my Aprilia Futura. I rode it back from NYC to Memphis in two days and my butt felt like it had just been massaged by virgins rubbing it with rose petals.

So, what's the percentage of people who actually read the thread title and are responding correctly?

Just a little hint: "ever" does not equal "never" ...

I make it a rule to never sit on anything I can't afford for fear I may want it. In times past I've been known to make large purcahses on whims, so to preserve marital bliss I stay off other bikes. Until I went with my buddy a couple months ago to pick up his NC700X, I was so board in the hour and a half they signed paperwork I ended up sitting on almost everything on the floor. And just as I mentioned....it's made me think seriously and constantly about trading my KLR.
#1 - Goldwing, this is just ridiculous, if this thing had a bathroom and a shower I wouldn't need a house.
#2 - And I was shocked by this, Burgman 400, I fell in love with this thing, comfy seat, small backrest, felt pretty light, lots of feet position options.
#3 - I'm not sure if it was actually as comfortable as I wanted it to be, but I kind of fell for the C14
#4 - I've never even sat on one but for some reason my butt has joined with my brain and is telling me I really want to sit on a Victory Vision Tour

#1 - Never in a million years, to heavy and to expensive
#2 - Seriously want one of these and its within budget
#3 - Only slightly out of bidget but a serious consideration for next bike, I figure I'll live longer if I stick with the Burg
#4 - Way out of budget as well as being to heavy but if it's as comfy as the Wing....I'd go home with one

Oddly enough it was a 90 something Honda Shadow Ace for me.

With these old style bent back beach bars.

It was like they started at my ass and designed the bike around it.

A 2011 Ducati Multistrada 1200. I am 6'3" and 230 lbs and it fit me like a glove. The suspension was superior.
Real like it. Got $20000 I can borrow?

You never rode it, yet the suspension was supeior? I HAVE ridden it, and the suspension IS superior! I'm 6'1" and 220. The Multi 1200 ROCKS!

The most comfortable bike I've never ridden was the Victory Vision Tour. Loved the bike! LIght for a cruiser, and perfect ergos, but I'd be afraid somebody I know would see me on it...playin Buck Rogers or sompin

Glad they make bikes with unusual styling, for somebody else.

Of several, this has been by far the most comfortable Bike I have ever owned;



Most comfortable ever ridden would have to be a Suzuki TU250X
