I saw on another post the seat is +30mm over standard. Is it very noticeable or does it squish when sat on? I am JUST about fitting on the bike on slight tip toes but not flat (5'7") and am worried the extra padding will push me up.

I'm 5'10" and I can flat foot no problem with the comfort seat, and that's taking my weight of and decompressing the rear suspension. With my weight on the bike I can flatfoot with a bend in the knees as well -from both the foam and the suspension compressing. I'm not terribly heavy either @ 185lbs

The problem is that the seat material is nice and grippy for jeans so they end up riding up a little so it looks like your wearing Capri pants after a bunch of stops. Then you gotta stand up and pull them back down...:p the seat is plenty comfy though.

Had the comfort from day 1, and liked it. The std seat came with it in a box, so a few miles in and I decided to have a go on it.
The comfort seat is never going back on now. The std seat is comfy enough in leather suit, but the fact that it is that tad bit lower makes me feel like I am "in" the bike rather than "on" it, and I like that feeling. Also the added effect of less wrist pain. :)

I am 180cm (5'11) tall and flat foots the comfort seat.

I can get some before/after shots if you guys want? I'm 5'7" and mostly leg... friend has the comfort seat on his 1199 and I have the stock seat on my 899. I could swap them quick one day and get some shots as far as flat-footing and what not if anybody would like some.
