Comfortable aftermarket seats?

Hi guys, my seat kind of hurts my ass. Well, not necessarily my ass but the inner part of my thighs where the curve of the seat is. Anyone have a tip as to where I could get a good/comfortable after market seat?

+1 for Corbin. Another notable brand is Sargent. You can always get your seat reupholstered with more cushion.

I've looked into Corbin myself, and it's likely the first thing I will purchase at the beginning of next riding season.

Sargent does not make a seat for our bike I don't think. One thing I like about Corbin is that it's leather, not vinyl like other aftermarket seats.

the 07 cbr600 I've ridden has a lazy boy, compared to my rc51. if you're looking for comfort, why not look into touring bikes?

Probably because the only issue with the pre 07 cbr is the seat! Given that this is an 03-06 forum, he's not likely to have an 07 and the seats are different. A couple of hundred dollars on a seat makes a lot more sense than selling what you've got, buying another bike and then suffering all the other compromises that go along with a tourer when you really want to be on a sports bike!
