    I did an 8 hour day recently on the interstate on a first gen with a stock seat and a 20" Madstad screen. I weight about 190 lbs and after 4 hours it felt like the foam was compressing and I was starting to find the seat uncomfortable, Ten hours is definitely doable though.

    I've heard he's still making seats, but you pretty much have to know who to ask. Heh.

    I've got one of those "Dirt Road" seats, 700-mile days are no problem. I only use it when going on a multi-day trip though, as the seat does put me an extra 1/2" or so higher up, which has me on the balls of my feet at a stop. Not a big deal on the occasional trip, but for daily riding I much prefer solid footing.
