You go for a ride when you sit do yea?

Normally the only time I have seen this is when the seat is not tight enough. Make sure you have proper washers to disperse the load (don't put metal directly against the ceramic though) and If there is a shoulder on the bolt that the nuts are not hitting the shoulder before tightening to the bowl. The give it a another turn or so (be careful you can crack the bowl some easer then others. See if it tightens up.
