Default Drag Specialties Touring vs. Ultimate Seat ..its on!

I know its not as exciting as UFC 202 or anything like that but I thought I'd post up how my comparison goes. I just got them changed over tonight....let's see how it goes.

I have been considering the Ultimate seat for a month now. I am very interested to hear what you think.

Couldn't make up my mind so I spent the money on a BigD hitch and rack system for longer camping trips. Great product.

I was only able to take a short ride after putting the Ultimate on. My initial impression is good for the 10 miles I rode. The seating distance is the same as the DS but in its unbroken-in state the Ultimate is about 1/2" higher. I don't have short legs, I didn't notice any real difference putting my feet on the ground from the seat. I wasn't bothered at all by the seating position. I immediately felt easement on my tailbone due to the relief cut into the backrest of the Ultimate. The Ultimate feels very plush compared to what I'm used too. I'm looking forward to taking it on a long ride to find out if that plush support holds out as the hours roll by. The DS is a firmer seat but its support never seemed to wear out(ie: never felt like I was sitting on the pan)

Got a good route planned for my spin to Mom's South today, looks like temps will go from 58 this morning to 87 by the afternoon. This should give me a good test of the Ultimate Seat...I'll report back later

I'll gladly 'test' whatever seat you decide not to go with to see how much better it is than my stock XR seat!

After about 250 miles and ~7 hours of seat time today I've decided to return the Ultimate Seat.
The DS seat is more comfortable at the end of the day. Here's a few points I don't like about the Ultimate 1. the foam holds heat, as does the vinyl cover and it gets hot to sit on, 2. the wide edges pressure me in a way I don't care for, both when I extend my legs and put my feet on the ground, 3. it looks like a giant marshmallow on the bike and 4. I'm 6' 230lbs and I could already feel the support of the foam giving up at the end of my ride today.
To be honest, I couldn't wait to get off the bike....My butt cheeks and where edge was pressuring my legs, were stinging like I'd been paddled for 15min after I dismounted.

The Ultimate Seat is not for everyone. But in the 12 years in which I have owned 4 of them on 4 different bikes (well OVER 200,000 miles) and probably a dozen or so 17 hour (straight) rides, 3 ironbutts, and one bunbuster (1500 miles in 36 hours)...I gotta say, I'll stick with my Ultimate Seat. Yes, earlier in my riding experiences...I did try several other custom seats. Yeah, I'll stick with my Ultimate Seat.
