BMW seats suck. Great bike but bad seats. I'm speaking of both the 1200 and 800 GS's. Most every owner has to get a custom seat to survive. After spending nearly 20K on a new bike why should you have to replace the seat? When you buy a car do you have all the seats replaced? I have a 1200GS. I had to buy a $400 Seargent seat for it to be comfortable. I also have a Buell XB12XT, it has a very comfortable seat. The Buell cost half as much as the BMW. WTF?
