RDL doesn't customize these seats to the rider because if he did then he would customize them so shorter people could be flat footed with their feet down. For that kind of money that RDL charges, it should be spot on with how you want it, you shouldn't have to slide up or stand on your tip toes to hold it up.
I thought I read a couple of 'overly-idealized' descriptions of the RDL. Don't get me wrong, the RDL is the top dog in touring comfort.
However, they do add a minimum of 1.5inch the height of your seat and I have heard of some who have had more than that added to the height. Their sale-moto is that they are gonna make a comfy seat regardless of your reach.
I am not of the mind that tip-toeing at the stop with a 900lbs is an 'ok' situation, but that is up to the individual.
Here is my critique: If you have to add a couple of inch with a spring (as RDL does) to a seat in order to make it comfortable, well heck, anyone can do that. I can put two pillows on the stock seat and make it comfortable.
That is the reason why I have turn to Seth Laam seats for aftermarket seats on my bikes. He can make a comfortable seat while maintaining height. Its been my experience that he makes the best out of your stock seat.
Whereas RDL has a formated seat construct for everyone. They got different shaped models, but their most comfy is that half moon and its the same seat for everyone.
They do ask for sitting-data from you; but their seats are same o'...
One option is to lower the bike; another guy I know had a really thick sole put on his riding boot (he looks like a member of KISS (rock band) with them boots on.
