    Search engine failed.
    The wife is not comfy. She wants more comfort and height if possible.
    Any recommendations or experiences would be helpful.
    Thanks

    I fitted a seat concepts high seat. Fantastic for rider. And my wife finds it much more comfortable.

    Wifey has done many many kms off road on the back of mine. I have the low seat option and the standard. She prefers the low seat. She lasts about 3 hours between breaks. Off road, I stop every hour or so.

    But a full day on fire trails leaves both of us very stiff and sore.

    I dropped the bike in the middle of a rocky water crossing on Sunday, and apart from nearly drowning she also smashed her ribs.

    She said the seat felt particularly hard for the rest of the ride, and the suspension felt harsh.

    My wife likes the Sargent touring seat. It is not sloped forward and wider than the stock. We could barley ride for 45 minutes without getting off of the stock seat. GH

    We have the Corbin. My wife finds it very comfortable and it did a great job of making it easier for her not to slide into me. But it doesn't do much for getting her higher, at least not to the point of being able to see over me or anything.

    I have the Touratech Touring seat (regular height). Wife likes it much better, but wouldn't sit for more than an hour at a time. The stock one was much worse.
