I'm on record here to like & have Seat Concept seats for a number of my bikes.
Yes, I sit a lot, I'll only get up the pegs when the going is getting tricky-enough to warrant me to lift my arse...
And I still like these, however the one for my 300TPI, which is also a prefect for on my new 500EXCW, I do not like at all!
At the end of a full day riding on that 'a bit taller and also thicker' SC-seat my behind has had enough, it painfully complains.... and the next/further day/s only become more agonizing - which yeah, came as a surprise for me, because the others prove really good!

Anyway, during my last two-day 500-ride (during which again my buttocks were painfully treated) JonW mentioned that the original 6-Days seat wasn't bad - which rang true because on my '14-500 I've done dual 2 weeks-riding-on-end trips with Hardy in Kaokoland without these problems.

At home I looked at both my new-still 6-Day seats, and decided to give Dion Korkie a try to make me a more-comfy seat.
I've met the man quite a few years ago because I dropped off a seat for Jaco Smith, @Grondpaaie hierso, and heard later he'd done an absolute sterling job, plus his name is often mentioned here in combination with good reports .... so let me do a "me too"!

WhatsApp-ed him (he prefer such, his paws often in greasepots as he says himself) and Yip, bring it! was his reply.
Now I also live in Pretoria so dropping the seat off at his place was a minor.
Explained what I wanted (less sore behind plies baas!) and left it at that, I even did mention that I was in zero hurry as I got no 500-rides planned in the neat future.
The next afternoon I got a WA plus pics that the seat was ready........ hey bru, you didn't hear me saying I was in no hurry???? 😋

Picked it up of course, and it looks great: bit wider and also, quite a bit thicker there where it matters, at the rear where I tend to plant my butt (y)
It feels good as I 'tried it on', and the next tricky ride, hopefully multiple days, will prove if I'm a slapgat or that Dion's seat is indeed an improvement ..... that's a hint @JonW and perhaps @OomD , so read that again please? :p

Some pics from the std seats and Dion's below.
Excellent quality to my untrained eyes however I tend to look through my arse here, sorry... ;)
Oh, price really very reasonable too, waayyy less than a SC one 👌

Dion Korkie het my 690 se saal ook einde verlede jaar gedoen - en is een moerse verbetering! Het Desember 'n 2000km draai gaan ry en die verskil met betrekking tot gemak was ongelooflik.

Hy het beide my 990 en T7 sitplekke onlangs gedoen.

Fokus was op gemak saam met ñ pillion.

Met die T7 was ons Angola toe.

Dion se vakmanskap het nie teleur gestel nie.

R 2500 per sitplek.

Will definitely be doing the 950's seat with Deon when the time comes. That seats looks great!!

Note, I haven't heard a single bad word about the guys work. And a ton of recommendations. 1 day turn around is also unheard of!

Obviously the man knows what he is doing.
