Just a little rant.
Sargent is more comfortable than the stock seat, and lower than the GT comfort seat. I bought a used one and have found a weakness. Apparently they use string and buttons to hold down the rod between the rider and pillion portion of the seat. The use one I bought looked perfect till the rod began to poke up through the cover. Had to remove cover sew up the tube for the rod, tie new cord ( way better than the string they used ) make new buttons and tie the cover to the padding. Then re-install the cover. By the way this takes a staple gun made for upholstery. Just a 2 hour process, now it is all it should be. But beware when buying a used one. Sargent quoted about $80.00 plus shipping to repair. About 2-3 week turn around and that was in the off season. I did it myself because the temptation to put all new into it and heat and other options, if I sent it in was way to tempting. One day If I can ever try one, I think I will pony up for a Russel Day Long. Good luck in your search for comfort. Shame you can't find a local rider to let you demo his or her seat.
Wow I didn't know BMW made motorcycles, Yeah I think Honda does too.
