I have noted 66 that you are a very helpful kind of Wildcat. Keep up the great family tradition.
I have heard that a recent trend in seat padding has been going to memory foam. This stuff, like the Tempurpedic pillows and mattress, conforms to the body. I do have several of their products and the stuff is great. Nasa created this stuff for the seats on the space shuttle. If I ever have to recover the seat I am going this direction.
I too have found that the seat cuts off circulation after a couple of hours of driving. Before I put the seat covers on (some more padding) I tried moving the seat back and forth. With the seat in a more upright position, I've found that it doesn't happen. These seats are very flat compared to most seats and the edge is sharp and that is what I think is happening.
I am 5'9" and I have the seat up as far as it can go. I have tried adjusting the back of the seat into differnet positions. I've tried moving the seat down, forwards, backwards but still no comfortable spot has been located. I will have to try the jute padding method...
Adjusted the seat back to sit more upright and lowered the bottom so my knees sit lower than my butt...this seems to have worked...also, I sit fairly close to the steering wheel even tho I am 5'10. This was a major issue when SSR was first purchased along with the "heavy" steering but seem to have adjusted well over the last 6000+ miles! Also, hubby knows NOT to move my seat for fear of :smash :mad :smash
It's all in how you sit. If you sit with your knees straight ahead, instead of splayed out, and with your right toe brushing the brake pedal, then the lump that is the right seat bolster isn't much of a problem.
