Yes, they soften up over time. Or, your a*s gets immune to the seat. :p

But then again, I'm an old cyclist who use to ride for miles & miles with hard road bicycle seats.:ride:

Put one on my S last year. Haven't been able to ride due to massive amounts of snow since mid November. I hope it breaks in real fast as I'm 61 and, well, how much longer will I be able to do this...? I know that "My" seat has softened up, but that doesn't help much when riding. That's just a fact of life.

The SDG tall seat feels like it has higher density foam, which IMO makes it better than the stock seat. My ass would start to protest after about two hrs on the stocker....the SDG was a major improvement along with improving the ergonomics of the bike.

Yeah, the SDG is a bit more firm than stock, but I think being tall, even though the foam is firmer, because it's about and inch, maybe inch and a half deeper at the place where I usually sit, it's finally easier on my rump. I used to be able to go about 1.5 hrs. before going numb--now I can go out 2 hrs before I lose sensation. I also make it a point to stand on the pegs when there's an easy and safe opportunity, and even a minute standing extends ride time by getting some circulation south of the belt line.

I have a SDG tall. for 3 years. Mine is hard as a rock and hasn't loosened up in the least. I hate it. But it has such a nice cover. After about 1 hour its killing me. I'm not a hater...just stating facts.

I'm in the minority here. I don't mind the stock seat. My problem is that I want an all black one. Mine has the blue sides. because of this, I'm gonna get a black Renazco when I get some money together.

There is usually someone trying to sell an "all black" seat cover in the TT classifieds or on ebay all the time.....It's actually much harder to find one in blue/black......trust me(it took me three or four months to find one, and then I ended up buying another complete seat).
