Hi all..
My Spain trip looms closer and I'm finalising all the 'optional extra' stuff.
My Italy trip last year I had a gel pack that is for wheelchair users, which I velcroed to my seat.
It was a god send, but did shift around alot.

So what I'd like to do this year is either put on alot of wieght to ad my butt, or get a custom seat made, preferable out of the same gel material.
Failing that, ANYTHING more comfy than the bog standard seat will do!
Scott at bandit bikes suggested that the harsh angle of the dommy seat won't help matters.

Anyhoo, enough of my life story, does anyone know a custom seat maker, or any other options for creating a happier arse? (No smut please ;-p )

I found that the standard Transalp seat was a serious arse pain and avoided riding it long distances. I posted some time ago having dealt with a Mr. Tony Archer of Huddersfield. Phone No: 1484 536832
A complete gent. Brilliant to deal with and a first class craftsman. Go for it. Have the seat reupholstered with Gel Pads fitted. I did a spin to Belgium last week, from Ireland, right across the UK, Pembroke/Dover, lots of yards and furlongs throughout YourRip and MAGIC! Totally TrandsformedTransalp ;) Thanks Mr. Archer, worth every penny. Looks brilliant too.

Pics? Was it a straight swap or did it require 'persuasion'? I have a large selection of hammers available to make anything fit, I just need to know where to hit it.:rolleyes:
