Default C&C Solo Seat comfort?

Who's got a C&C Solo? How comfy is it?
How tolerable is it for putting on miles?
I believe the Solo sits the same as their 2-ups differing only in having less "lumbar rise"?

My Lepera Daddy Long Legs Daytona is good for an hour before numb butt sets in but it's a relatively mild case of numb butt. Harleys' Tour Pack Rack also won't quite fit. Close, but the rack sits 1/4" too low...

I have one. As I said in an earlier post on the topic of seats, when I want a 'look' I put on the C&C. When I want to ride, I put on the Sundowner Solo.
The C&C is quite thin and very firm.
The bucket depth is the same 12" as a stock 2017 XL1200C seat.
On my 2017 XL1200C, the seat has to be removed to check the oil.
But it does look good :-)

Bucket "depth"? Tank to seam in the bottom of the bucket?

Does your Sundowner sit you farther back than the C&C Solo? I assume the Sundowner sits you higher.

How many miles before your C&C Solo gets uncomfortable?

Bucket depth: the distance from the nose of the seat at the tank to as far back as you butt will go.
Sundowner solo has a 14" bucket depth. C&C is 12".
The Sundowner does sit me slightly higher.

"How many miles before your C&C Solo gets uncomfortable?"
Not many which is why I ride with the Sundowner.
