    What a difference! It's got from a two-hour to a ten-hour saddle and it looks great. Hand made by Terry Adcox of Terry's custom seats in Manchester, TN. Half the price of a Sergeant because Terry uses your current seat pan, about $275 for front seat only, rear pillion is about the same. He made the seat on my V-Strom and I had to have one for the RS. Highly recommend.

    Nice Strommer. Can you post a photo of the bike please? I'd like to see how it looks.
    Thanks.

    Yes, thanks. Always nice to find out about a good saddlemaker and the Volunteer State is close enough that I could drive in...

    Can you not see the pictures I posted, or did you mean a full body shot of the bike?

    Does the seat require a rain cover?

    Strommer - have you ever had a Russel Day Long? If so how does it compare in support and comfort?

    I like my Sargent, but it just doesn't handle the long distances like an RDL.

    I'm sure that's a comfy seat but I'm afraid the "look" doesn't work for me, more of a cruiser seat than a sports tourer. But each to their own, glad it works for you Strommer.

    Not just the look: I can't see hanging off the seat in turns with that big thing. I had a Sargent seat on my old RT, and that was its only drawback.

    Well as someone who never "hangs off the seat in turns" but spends ten-hour, 600-mile days in the saddle, it's perfect for me.

    lf I lived on your side of the pond I'd say the same. I've averaged 40,000-50,000 miles a year for the last 10 years, including 4/ 11,000 mile Alaska trips. Distance riding goes with the landscape. 600 to 800 mile days are are my norm nothing special, but always fun.

    Curious was your distance sitting on this to the ground or pegs alter making your sit on top of the bike rather than feeling like you’re sitting in the bike?

    Looks like a good seat and the price is very affordable. I went with a Seth Laam custom seat out of California in which I had to ship the stock seat. It was $430 to redo riders seat and recover the pillion.
