Is it just me or is this the most painful seat ever? Given the bike now has roughly 70 miles on it now, but will it break in? I put sixty miles of fore roads, sand washes and California desert trails from severe inclines and declines with sand and rocks and anything else you can imagine, now my ass is so bruised it even hurts on my bean bag watching the chargers game! ***!?!
I kind of like the firmness compared to my old 650R seat. Much easier to move around on, but definitely not designed for purely sit down only riding.
And I find watching Charger games lately are painful no matter what I sit on.

I dont think the seat was made for sitting on.. this isn't a cruiser, lol. The seat is firm enough so that it'll hold you in position, and you can slide around on it as you need, given the situation. You should be standing up more.

My arse has sort of hardened up to my WR450F seat over time.
Still, I plan to shave it down a bit in the near future to try and make it a little shorter. I'm only 5'8" and I'm sick of struggling to hold the bike up when I'm in really difficult terrain!
