Some posts are about as much use as tits on a bull.
Not THESE posts of course

Did you lose any leg room when you went to the thruxton seat? I was thinking about going w/ the thrux gel seat but looks like you might lose a few inches compared to our stock seat.

scottdc,

I had the gel seat on my Thruxton, and though it was more comfy than stock, that gel gets hot enough from the summer sun to roast your backside, boys included. I added sheepskin and all was well.

I haven't really noticed any difference in leg room. The two seats are very close in thickness on the front half but the Thruxton seat is narrower and a tiny bit thicker.

Gotta say I really don't find the standard seat too uncomfortable.
Approx 9 hrs in the saddle yesterday & no probs, couple of weeks ago I did a three day run with long riding days & it was only the last couple of hours on day 3 that got to me but everything was tired & sore at that stage not just my butt. Putting in some hours on it might be the best cure.

Crikey, I go away on the scrambler for a weekend, and come back to Triumph owners talking about Butts, Cows n Milk.
You lot need to get out more.
Hey TrustMe, sorry i missed you on the Kawhia run. Bit of a shame, as Sat night turned into a laugh, and the Sunday ride saw the crew get through the Hauturu slip.
World Rally Champs should be able to make it at the end of the month.
As for the scrambler seat.......Superb. Two full days riding with Katooms, Tigers, DR's etc over gravel n mud, and it is as comfy as ever.
Might post a few pics through the week.
Oh Mitas E-09's handle mud, gravel, seal, water, the lot, a bit noisy on the tar, but I'm a bit noisey on the beer.
Carry on gents.

Next time. Almost got there but it was getting late after we wussed out on the river crossings [waist deep] so I decided to head for home.[ 11 hrs & 10 in the saddle was enough ]
Bloody good day , the better the weather got, the worse the roads got , the scram & I backed off on the last stretch when guys started to go down, You just can't stay with the DR's etc in those conditions, tyres dont help when you run out of suspension & the holes in the road could & did eat a GS Adventures for supper, [ his 2nd fall ]
Stick up some pictures , it was too wet for me to get any other than puncture repairs at Port Waikato
Cop u lator

Bulls cows and milk? maybe i should get invovled......

My scarmbler seat seems fine, haven't even needed a sheep skin yet
It did benefit from using a good leather conditioner/saddle soap

I mainly did it for waterproofing, left it out in the sun to warm up and rubbed it in well by hand, really helped it out

Dont use armour all or any of thoser slippery car spray on ones - they're shitehouse - get a good cream type one
