I have a 2009 R1200RT with low seat, low suspension because I am inseam challenged, but
found that the low seat was just too uncomfortable to tolerate. I sent the seat pan in to
Russell and had a custom built Russell Day Long seat made and I love it, it did raise me up
about another inch and a half to 2 inches which I didn't like so much. I read on these boards
where someone with a similar problem took his riding boots to a local cobbler and had him add
some height to the soles of his boots..........that's what I did, I added 3/4 of an inch and it
worked like a charm, I've got both the comfort and control that I want. Something to consider
when you are looking at custom saddles. Good luck.
