    Wunderlich Low Seat

    Hi Guys
    Finally getting my 21 850 GS Rallye dialed in.  Wondering if there is anyone in the southern N.H., Vt, Me., Northern MA. area who has a Wunderlich Low seat I could see and evaluate before dropping serious money on one of these.
    Thanks,
    Ski

    isl99 - I had one delivered, but just returned it because the pin at the front of the seat didnít have a notch to latch into the bike.  It felt great on the test drive, but need to get it replaced with one thatíll lock.  Glad to hear Iím on the right track!

    Cheers,
    Bryan

    Better than the factory low seat, or the regular seat? I've got the comfort seat on my GSA and it's pretty good, but could be better. Thx.

    I've tried the OEM comfort, regular and low seats on the 850gs and I would say its better than all of them. If you are fairly happy with the OEM seat I'm not sure if you'd find the Wunderlich seat all that much better than OEM, but its subjective of course. Then there's also the cost, they aren't cheap. I wasn't happy with the low OEM seat so I thought the upgrade was worth the cost.

    I chose the low seat since I'm just under 6' and wanted to be able to flat foot the bike. I also really like the look of it over the stock seat.

    I've had no issues with the Wunderlich locking to the bike.

    Glad to hear!  It looks like mine was just a one-off defect that made it through the system.

    What I am wondering is,  How is the seat pan compared to stock low?  The stock has  a defined edge at your inner thighs which is less than comfortable.  Is the Wunderlich better?
    Thanks

    I found the Wunderlich seat has rounder, narrower feels between the thighs - in addition to being lower, that narrowness helped me feel better about moving across the bike when needed.

    Cheers,
