Is anyone else sore?!

So I am a newbie rider, went through the MSF course and I have had my bike for about 2 weeks. I haven't gone on it too much because we are experiencing a lot of heavy rain in Michigan right now (go figure), but when I did go riding, I found my seat less than comfortable after 4-6 hours of riding.

Is anyone else getting sore from the seat and where should I go to purchase a more comfortable seat, online or dealer? Once I feel comfortable enough, I want to commute to work, which is about 35-40 miles away and I know I am gonna need something a little softer lol


Thanks for any and all feedback

- NN

Corbin makes a saddle that is a bit more ergonomic on the rear end.

Thanks for the feedback everyone, it is appreciated. @zacharious - Its a 2011 Ninja EX250. @minichris - I will check Corbin out. @davisw4089 - I think I might agree with you, I think I may be starting to get used to the slight discomfort, it is definitely not going to keep me from riding. I am an avid distance and mountain biker, so I definitely know about discomfort

I just wanted to know if there were seat options for the ninja, for long distance rides.
