Well the main thing is that I hope you can get your seat to the point where your happy with it and its comfy and safe for the backside, having a good comfy seat that stays where you want it is important on these motorized bikes to me.
My seats aren't the coolest and sportiest looking seats bit they are duable and comfortable for the long rides I make since I live several milea out of town, 30-45 mile rides are not uncommon for me in a day, so comfort trumps the coolest looking seat for me.

The good ole wide cushy cloud 9 seats are my favorite so far.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
