  • Seat Options?

    Anybody install the Honda Premium Seat or any other aftermarket or rebuild seat such as Russell Day Long? I would be interested in any comments regarding seat options. I have found that the seat in my case is a little too built up in the center, seems that if there were more support around the outside edge of your tail would be a lot more comfy on a long trip. That would probably require a wider seat for the rider, but I am looking more for comfort on all day rides rather than looks.

    To clarify, this is regarding the 2018 Goldwing Tour model.

      The premium Honda seat uses the same pan and foam as the stock seat, according to John Conley at Wingsoft.

              That seat and backrest look normal & comfortable.


              Unlike a Corbin with a toilet seat backrest.


              Do you mind telling us what your set up cost??

                  The GW old GWers wish Honda would make.

                    It retains the factory controls, I would not buy a seat that didn't, we paid a lot of money for built in control.

                      sounds like this is the way to go for those looking for a seat. how long did it take?

                      How are you liking this seat? Im assuming youve put on some miles since purchasing it.

                        I have about 2500 miles on it now, when I ride I don't even think about the seat because my butt isn't a problem now.

                          thats good to hear. so, do you think it has broken in even more or youve just gotten used to it? how's your passenger like it? im going to give a custom seat a try. itll be an expensive trial but you dont know what youre missing until you try it i guess. I narrowed it down to the exact same one you have or the corbin. I hate the donut back rest of the corbin, looks ridiculous, but ive sat on one and i fit in perfectly. if it wasnt for the 4+ week turnaround for RDL, Id go that way. I guess I can wait till winter or just buy another stock seat to be able to ride. decisions.

                        I've had RDL and Corbin, I like both, the only way you will know is to try one.
