I bought a Kontour seat for my 1300GT. Talked to the guy on the phone and through email. He seemed Ok, and he was offering a $100 discount, due to a slow period I guessed. So sent him my seat, got it back, rode it a while, better than OEM but still a pain in the ass. Tried to contact him, no luck for a few weeks. When I did get him in an email I told him about where it hurt and the changes I'd like to see, he said it would cost him to much to make the changes, WTF?? After a few emails with an attitude (from him) he said he didn't want to do business with me anymore and would get my seat back to OEM and give me my money back, 4-6 weeks because he was very busy. I said fine, then I told him that I was going to the BMW rally in VT and it would be a great conversation starter when I rode in with a staging plank wrapped with a pillow. A week later I had my seat back (OEM) and my money refunded. It still cost me $100 in shipping but better than nothing. I then bought a Sargent on ebay, better, but not much, sold it. I got in a group buy for RDL, what a pleasure (Heather) is the best, talked a few times on the phone, she let me work around my schedule to get the seat to them, got it back to me as promised, only problem is it won't stop snowing in NH. Anyway it feels the best out of all of them, can wait to put some miles on it.
