    Seat

    Wife just got a 2009 G650GS and hates the stock seat. Anyone have an aftermarket seat they don't need? What other model BMW's seats fit the GS?

    Thanks folks.

    Keep an eye out for an aftermarket seat in the flea market areas of whichever bike boards you visit. I've found good deals on second hand Corbins for my CS and my son's G650GS as well as on a Sargent for Dave's RT.

    BMW offers a low seat, a high seat, and a solo seat with attached toolbox for this bike.

    I had a Corbin on one of my 650gs's and hated it as much as the stock seat.

    You might try a sheepskin cover. I originally bought it for my R bike, but now use it on the F, and it helps quite a bit.

    Eventually sold the bike (not because of the seat), but now I have another 650 (can't seem to stay away) and I'm right back where I started. I have a sheepskin and it does help some. It's not adequate though for much more than 175 miles. After that point I'm wiggling around.
    I also have a bead seat that I like. Its probably the most useful inexpensive option I've tried.
