Night and day difference over the stock seat. Wider, firm and supportive with good back support. Plus it really looks good on the bike. Forgot to mention, it also comes with a rain cover as well.
Something else about the seat that is really cool (pun intended) is that the leather has a treatment that somehow reduces surface temp. I was skeptical about this feature when I purchased it. I can honestly say that it does actually work very well. With the bike sitting out in the blazing sun for hours you can safely place your hand or butt on the seat without being scorched.
I have about 15000 miles on the same DS seat the OP and Pain have. In my experience it is much more comfortable than the OEM seat. Note that the DS seat sits lower the the OEM seat but the foam on the sides of the front is thicker on the DS so you may notice less reach to the ground if you have short legs.
