thinking of picking one of these up of there not completely butt numbing..

I never ride long distance and i do not plan to, i don't enjoy riding on the highway at all, i get bored quick on the highway so most of my highway trips are no longer than 15 min to 30 min. but i do often spend a hour or two riding the bike around town.

can one stand to set on one of these seats for a few hours at a time and not get of the bike groaning..

Firm and wide with good back support, not at all pillow like and soft. Not bad for the driver strictly solo, but it is intolerable for a passenger.

What I would do, make your own seat pad. Not expensive at all, and you can make it as plush as you want. I did this, saved me hundred of dollars, and alot more comfortable.

I have a Corbin Solo seat which is very firm to the touch, but is comfortable for all-day riding. Sunday 9/27 we did a 650 mile 13 hour ride, and I had no discomfort from the saddle at all. I have no idea how the shape of a young guns seat would translate to comfort, but firm materials do not equate to being uncomfortable. Its all about weight distribution, and firm can be better than plush for avoiding sweat related problems. The high density foams do not transmit impact and vibration, or develop "hot spots".

The Young Guns seat looks like it should be comfortable for the driver, but I wouldn't want to be riding shotgun for very long.

From his post I took that comfort is irrelevant as long as it is not completely bad, and he wants the looks of the young guns seat.
my stock seat is comfy, but i like the look of the solo seats best. the young guns has a really low profile passenger seat that seems to blend in with the bike nicely and has a back rest witch would be nice. i don't like riding people that much, every now and again ill take some one for a short ride so im not concerned about passenger comfort. they can deal with it for 10-20 min if i take them out on a ride.

it loos like the young guns seat might even have a lower seating position that the stock seat also would halve to find out about that (i heard it does) but not sure how valid that info is. i'm short so it would be nice to be a little lower to the ground too. I don't want to put a lowering kit on my bike. not much ground clearance as it is.

i don't need a soft couch cushion type seat but i don't want something hard as a rock and horrible to ride on. i want something comfortable but it does not halve to be extremely comfortable.
