Hello Forum Members,
I owned an 2010 NC700 and loved it! However, my wife and I like to ride cross country and long days were beating me up on the seat. I tried several aftermarket options at the time and just gave up after awhile. Now, I am looking at some of the newer options available for the NC750X seat and feel like I might be in the market again for another NC.
Until I make the purchase, I'll be following along the posts in the NC750 section and see how things are going. I see at least one name I remember from the past "DDuelin" and glad to see he is still active here.
Attaching a picture of my current ride.

Thanks and not yet! I am still trying to figure out if the 2020 seat is better for long distance riding. Looks like is is flatter than the previous. I really miss the NC700 and even though I have a great bike now, I would like to get another Honda. My Vstrom will probably stick around unless I find it isn't getting used much.

From what I can tell the 2020 seat is pretty similar to all the prior years. I dunno, maybe they actually changed the foam? I believe it has a new part # for the 2020 so something might be different.

I switched to a Corbin, its pretty good. Much better than stock on my 2018. Russel Day Long seat seems like it has the best shape for long distance cruising.

Thanks for the reply.
I would like to see the Russell on the bike. I think the 2020 is mentioned somewhere that it is redesigned. After all this COVID crap is over, I need to go find one at a dealer and sit on it to see the difference.

The stock 2020 seat looks to me like the same old torture device.

Here is an interesting Youtube on the 2020 seat. Reading some of the comments from other owners, it sounds like Honda did make a change in 2020.
That Russell looks pretty comfy and his seats are definitely high quality. Thanks for the pic!
