The guys at www.saddlemen.com are developing an aftermarket seat for the R3. I loaned them my bike as a test mule. They have some pretty nice stuff so I'm excited to see how it turns out. I'll report back when I pick it up in October. My wife and I are leaving for a 14K mile, 7 week 4-Corners and Canada ride this Saturday on my RT so that gives them plenty of time.
Whatever they come up with has to be better than the stocker
