Best Motorcycle Seats for Long-Distance Trips. If you have been riding your bike for years, bead seats, rubber donuts, and air bladders can take you so far. There comes a time when you need to replace your seat. It is painful to ride a bike without a proper seat. The fact is your butt deserves better so do it this favor. Replacing your seat can change your riding experience for the better.
There are so many aftermarket seat options available so you have to completely understand your goal for you to refine your search.
As a motorcycle importer, I advise that you need to ask yourself these questions before buying a seat. Then look at your budget.
- Do you want to make a fashion statement? Or are you looking for comfort and functionality?
- How much time do you spend riding? What type of riding do you do?
- Do you carry a passenger? How often do you do that?
- Do you ride in harsh or wet weather conditions?
- Do you need the support of a wider seat or the stock profile works just fine?
These questions will help you determine which seat gives you the best riding experience. At times, you may not even need to replace your seat but add some paddings or change the seat cover.
Here is a list of some of the best seats in the market.
