    Russell pillion seats '08 R1200GS

    Does anyone have any experience with a Russell Day Long Pillion seat for an '08 1200gs? My wife's hips bother her on long rides and I've tried lowering the pegs, Alaska Leather Fleece and Airhawk pad and so far no real success. She's not big, 5'-5.5" 125lb. Just wondered if a different seat shape/design might help. Don't suggest a new wife, that's not an option. Thanks.

    Russel seat

    I have the daylong in leather, my wife loves her seat. Other than a LT, she says it is the most comfortable ever. I know that before the Russel she would be squirming in 50 miles or so. Now she stays happy up to 100-150 miles. I am usually ready to stop before her.

    Hi Abates (real name?)

    Please read: http://www.bmwmoa.org/forum/showthread.php?46055 - I'm adding that info to your thread title. It's rather obviously somewhat important info that might get people with something to offer to open the thread.
