Couple questions on aftermarket creature-comforts

Been working 72hr weeks so ai havent had much time forresearch... on my slow ass iphone at work now...

Wondering about aftermarket seats are available: sargent & corbin are a no so far. (p.s. if your arond hollister, ca get in touch w corbin-theyll make yours for free to anyone w a strada willing to loan it to them for fitting)

Taller/larger windscreens ? are there any?! Can i custom order? Im 6'1" and the wind hits my neck and when i take it off it wears my wrists forearms down.

Planning a couple thousand mile trip so im gonna have to take care of these issues before i embark -_-

Check out the threads about the touring windscreen and laminar lip.

Thanks for the windscreen thread zippy... I think I may go for the lip...

Has anyone upgraded their seat yet? It seems to bother my inner thighs after a couple hundred miles.

When I wear jeans, the seat cover seems too grippy. Puts my yarbles in a bind!
In leathers or gore-tex pants, no such problem. I do hit my knees against the bodywork when I scoot forward, though. Very annoying, so I'm looking at thinning the mounting rubbers there.

I bought a Corbin seat for my R6 many years ago. I wanted to love the much cushier seat but it was so wide in the bolsters that it was actually an overall negative. Made me gunshy about ever raplacing a seat again. Still say this is a great factory saddle.
