I have a 2003 GL1800 and trading for a 2013 GL1800. Have a Hartco seat on the 2003. What is the difference between 2003 and 2013 oem seats? I know the 2013 is heated. But what else?
I haven't ridden my 2012 yet, so I can't comment on the seat (which I've read is supposed to be an improvement over the 1st generation seat). But I can tell you after 200,000 miles on my 2004, I always ran with a $20 seat pad from the local auto parts supplier (often on sale for $10). In fact I would buy two, and then put two pads inside one cover. I've sat on many after market seats. For my derriere the OEM seat plus $20 in seat pads worked just fine for many years and many miles.OK, thanks all. I will try the oem seat for awhile and see.
