What's the best seat.

I was wondering what popular opinions on the best aftermarket seat are.

I went with 'Other' cause I don't seem to have too much trouble/problem with the stock seat.
My longest single day ride was a bit over 500 mi., and while maybe slightly uncomfortable (probably no more than if I'd drive a car for that far) it was still bearable and I probably could've kept going awhile longer.
Maybe if I tried another seat, I'd like it better, but I'm not about to spend a few hundred $$'s to find out.

Yeah, I went with "other" too. I have no idea what the best seat is, I just know it isn't the one on the bike, but I don't have the funds to actually try to find out either.

I've done 400+ mile rides and always stop at 100 or so miles usually need gas after riding a couple of hours, but I get sore and I'm looking for some more comfort. I just figured there has to be a better seat then stock, thats the reason for the poll. Maybe I'm just becoming a pussy with age.

Someone here has mentioned that it seems lighter riders may not have as much of a problem with the stock seat due to it's softness. Most of the other seats are a bit stiffer, offering better support to the tailbone, giving a more comfortable ride.

I had a stock seat, then had a stock seat modified with memory foam and now a Corbin, kept getting better every time. One thing I have found to work in hot riding is baby powder on your seat, very nice keeps pants from sticking.

I'm 6' 240# might be part of the problem.
