    Love the comfort seat!

    Bought the comfort seat today--definitely a worthwhile upgrade. No more sliding into the tank, even under heavy braking. And it actually is more comfortable--more padding makes a difference. Love the red stitching, too!

    Just got back from a 900k weekend overnight ride with the comfort seat, I agree, fantastic and a must!

    Also used the rear eat bag, brilliant and another must have.

    Did you get a rain cover with your tailbag?

    Glad to hear this about the seat, mine will be here next week. Gotta say the seat is my only small complaint about the 1199.

    I had the 1098 tail bag and loved it. It came with the rain cover.

    Does the new bag have any room? It looks kinda small. I've been debating the purchase. I wish the tank was steel so I could go back to using my magnetic tank bag...
    Today...we ride!!!

    The tail bag is a great size and zips up to accommodate more if need be and yes it comes with a rain cover , it's def bigger size wise than the 1098/1198 model. That and the comfort seat are a must have.

    Comfort seat is good.

    Bike can be pretty easily set up for sport touring. I used a FastRack and made some quick and dirty standoffs to keep the saddlebags off the tail and away from the rear wheel an did 1100 miles over 3 days.

    Excellent! I am surprised how comfortable the bike is, for what it is. My ST4s is not much better. Makes me think I need to trade that for a new Multistrada if I want a truly comfy ride :-)

    Yes, and maybe get an 848 SF for the trifecta.
