2016 seat question
« on: August 06, 2019, 06:47:42 pm »
 Are the 2016 saddle considered touring ?  Reason I ask is I have touring saddle but I find the stock one on my 16 more comfortable. They look close in construction not like the stocks Ive seen/used in the past.

 Different yes but the stock seat is much different than the stock I had on my 08 .  I had bought the touring seat for it and loved it but im finding I like the stock 16 seat better. Maybe im weird lol.

But I really never got the answer I was looking for . Are these newer seats resigned to be a touring seat just not labeled as such?  Really was my question I guess.

 Edit: I found my answer

       The Concours 14’s new seat is the first thing anyone will notice, as it has an improved ergonomic shape, as well as the modern front cutaways to allow you to reach the ground more easily. Not a huge improvement, but a nice incremental one. Plus, it looks nice with the contrasting stitching.
