Gel seat pad - recommendations

Ok so after a couple of hefty trip on the Tracer I am giving serious consideration to getting a gel (or similar) seat pad. There are a couple of points on my anatomy that get really sore on a long ride and spreading my 13st around a bit more evenly might be a good idea... anyone tried anything they'd recommend?

I've got a Sargent which although it seems hard was good on a 2000 mile tour of the Pyrenees, so it works for me.

I had that done to my 600 Fazer seat by a company that used to be in Eynsford, Kent, it was much better than the original seat padding for longer journeys

Cheers all. Judging by what I've found elsewhere on the 'net it seems that in this case "you buy cheap, you buy twice" applies, as in some £50 gel seat cover isn't going to do much good. I guess I'll save me pennies up and go for a Sargent. At such point as I change the bike I can at least sell it on... (or put it on my new Tracer probably!)

Agreed
I bought gel seat cover nd found it useless, so ended up buying a Bagster...
