I tried both seat options out when I bought my F800GS. I went with the low height seat for two reasons. I have a 30" inseam and the normal seat had a bump right where your tailbone is, which was uncomfortable just sitting on it. I hate to think how even 60 miles would feel. The low seat proved to be rather painful after 60-90 miles. So, being 40 miles from Corbin's Hollister factory, I went down there and had a custom seat made: It really changes the look of the bike and it sure makes a HUGE difference in ride comfort!
