Hi guys, I've been watching your forum for a while & thought I should pull my finger out & join up. I bought a 2010 GSX1250F last year after I sold my ZX9R & have been more than happy with it, but I'll also want to be making a few changes to it too (I'll be asking you guys for advice on some of those things) & riding it for years to come, hopefully linking up with some of you for a ride as well.

Yep the factory seat is crap. I've got a Sargent seat on mine. You could also look at Corbin or having a motor trimmer reshape the factory one.
A lambs wool helps too

I've got a Sargent seat with an air hawk. Much better than stock

I've got an air hawk which helps a lot, but think I'll be looking at getting a trimmer to sort it out or lash out & get a corbin or sargent, just have to convince the wife they're worth the coin.

Welcome onboard, Andy. 
Glorious part of the world, you live in. 
Be sure to keep the salt away from your ride, though.
