Is the seat on the Outback comfortable for long rides? I am sometimes bothered by a sore lower back, what is the support like for that area?
Welcome to the Board. Great question. I too have lower back problems, but even after 4-5 hours in the Outback, I have not noticed any particular aggravation, although others have. There is a simple solution however. There are a number of seat cushions out there that seem to solve this problem for most folks. These range from a simple inflatable camping-type cushion to more elaborate (and expensive) gel-filled cushions that conform exactly to your size and shape. I have been thinking of trying one of these out, but so far have not really needed one. Check out these links to see what I mean.
