I've tried Corbin, Mustang, Seat Concepts, Le Pera, Drag Specialties, Saddleman and several others over the decades and AFAIC none were any better than OEM. I'm presently using a Biltwell Solo 2 on my main bike, a 2000 Sporty hard tail, and it's comfortable enough for 700 mile days. I guess just about anything is comfortable enough once you've broken your ass in.

My Seat Concepts seat (on the CRF) is definitely better than stock.

Comfort is about as subjective as best looking I think. Take the sundowner for example.
Quite a few say it's comfortable but I've sat on one and it's way too thick, wide, sits too high, and if I recall, moves the rider forward a little. Everything I DON'T want in a seat. Throw in the ugly factor( one of the ugliest I've seen actually), and it's at the bottom of the list for me.

And I was somewhat mistaken on the C&C Solo seat I want. While I like the look of the Lopro Solo, it's the Solo I think is more comfortable with the better lower back support and the stay put factor on take offs.. You sit IN the seat , not on it. I'm afraid I'd slide back too much on hard take offs with the Lopro but the look rocks.

I'm actually liking the looks of the 2up fastback now that I look at it too. The way it flows into the fender is better than the Solo but other than that they're the same seat. Really not much of a 2up which is fine but can be in a pinch. In fact I'm really leaning towards it more than the solo now.

Whichever of the 2 I end buying, it will in leather.
