Over the years I've tried just about every high end seat maker's product with limited good results. Somewhat on a lark I ordered from www.amspecialtiesusa.com their 'Ortho Deluxe Sheepskin Gel pad for $124.95 plus shipping. Yesterday I rode with it for the first time; 555.4 miles. Everyone's mileage will vary on things like fuel mileage, tire mileage, seat comfort, etc. but this is one product that has served me extremely well in it's first outing. If you're on the fence as to spending the money on a custom seat, first consider this gel seat pad. Outstanding comfort for a reasonable amount of money!
