KonTour Seat

Has anyone had their seat done by KonTour yet. What is your opinion? They say reshaping is totally unnecessary with their composite foam design. Attached is a picture KonTour sent me.

I will be having mine done. Loved them on the LT and they're especially great if you live in a hot climate.

I looked at them, but I am unsure what I think about their perforated fabric and what would happen when it gets wet.

Sans Kontour, and my first 200 miler - short

OK spill it where does one get this "Kontour" done? Anyone else have a favored seat on the 2nd Gen K seat? I just put 200 miles on mine and I'm dreading the first "real trip".
The bike is awesome (more to follow), too bad I had to find a reason to stop and get off. You guys were right the stock seat is a freakin brick.

When I contacted KonTour they stated that they have done over 65 of these seats for 2006 and later K1200GT'S. Its just amazing with all those seats and all of the members here no one has anything to say. I guess no news is good news!

hmmm....??

Wasn't the shipment of 2006 GT's around 450 or so? That would be roughly 1 in 7 K1200GT'S has a Kontour seat?

Okay. I'm even more suspicious of their claims.
