Ultimate seat for 2008

Hi,
I just purchased an Ultimate seat for my wing. I have almost 500 miles on the seat and it's still very very hard. How long does it take break in.

Some aftermarket seats are designed to stay very firm forever.

Why ain't we ridin'?

I bought a used 2002 with a Corbin seat....
after about 500 miles, I traded it straight across for a 2010 OEM Honda seat.
by far more comfortable.

I purchased used Ultimate seats for both my GL1500 and Valkyrie Interstate. They were both "broken in" and I immediately took a liking to them but I do not know how many miles they had already seen.

I recently bought a used Ultimate for my GL1800. Of course it's much newer and therefore a bit firmer than the other two I have used. Again, no idea the miles on it so in summary I can't answer your question specifically. I know it's coming. My goal is to ride as much as I can this summer to get to that point.
