Goldfish under my butt?

I'm thinking about getting a new seat and I'm leaning towards this Saddlemen seat:

BUT....Do you think it holds water when it rains and I could keep a goldfish under my azz?

That's the first MC seat I've seen designed like that. Lot of bike seats. I don't know. I'd have to sit on it. In theory, I like it, but it looks like you lose some of the 'stretch your legs' in the back. I'd be looking at Sargent from my experience. And I've sat on a lot of seats.

I think the goldfish is out of luck regardless.

I do have this seat, it came with the bike when I bought it, tell you the truth, when it did ride it in the rain, I was out to dinner with my wife and some friends and it started pouring down, I did notice a little rain build up, but it wasn't flooded, now I know it did rain hard as I brought in my helmet and jacket as it started to rain, but I didn't notice it flooded when I got on, but my but was wet. either way you go, your gonna get a wet behind, but I don't think you are going to have to worry about the goldfish being part of the problem.

Anything with dip in it will feel better than stock.

Probably feel more planted n' securely in place.
