Tasslehoff Posted June 2, 2021 Share Posted June 2, 2021 Hi everyone, as I wrote in the thread title I'm a newbie (I got my bike license in February), and yes, despite everyone seems to discourage newbies to buy a T7, I did it as my first bike and don't regret it at all Now I did a little bit more than 3000 Km on my beauty and she feels great, the bike works greatly and the more I ride the more I wanna ride again and again. The only problem I have with my bike is the comfort. Before buying her I read almost every review and video test online, I was expecting to have some issues with the comfort, and despite things are slowly going better I'm still looking for something to solve this problem once and for all. I bought my T7 with the 2021 rally seat, regarding the height it's perfect for me, I'm able to flatfoot easily and honestly the new rally seat with the Yamaha logo looks really cool. At the beginning I felt sore butt and some tingling on my legs after only half an hour of riding, now things are going better, for example this evening I did a 2 hours riding with only one small break. Despite of that I continue to feel some butt sore after an hour of riding (no more legs tingling), maybe more if I stand on my footpegs from time to time to feel better. My dream is to be able to do long journeys with my T7, at least a couple of thousands of Km in 7/10 days, so I was thinking to approach this problem from different perspectives: Ride, ride and again ride to get used to longer trips. Ask to a doctor or a physiotherapist for some help. As far as I understood the problem came from the compression of the nerves under the butt muscles, maybe a doctor can suggest me some exercise to reduce this compression or can help me to solve any other issue in the area. Go to a gym and do some training to develope butt muscles to reduce the compression of the nerves behind it Change seat Regarding the last point I read there's a thread about Seat Concepts comfort seats, do you have any feedback on those products? Are they really better than the OEM (in my case rally) seats regarding confort? What do you think? Is there any suggestion you can give to help me reach my goal?
