Sargent Custom Seat
Took about a 200 mile ride today, NE Florida, hot; around 90 degrees F+ most of the ride. Longest seat time was about 1.5 hours.
PLEASE NOTE, THIS SEAT REVIEW IS A BMW FURNISHED PAN, FROM THEIR CUSTOM SHOP. YOU (I) FURNISH THE PAN, THEY MAKE THE SEAT PER YOUR DESIRES. THIS SEAT IS NOT THE SEAT THAT'S EXPECTED TO COME OUT IN THE SPRING OF 2007 WHERE YOU BUY FROM THEIR INVENTORY WITHOUT HAVING TO FURNISH THE PAN.
Compared to the BMW standard seat AND the LOW seat this seat is significantly better. I could have ridden all day with it.
By viewing the pictures, and you may not notice, but the seat is a trifle wider than the BMW furnished seat. They have slightly 'dished' out the seat towards the rear of the seat and there is no tendency to slide forward into the tank. Once you plant your butt, it stays unless of course you elect to move it. On both the standard BMW and the low BMW seat I tended to be very frequently shifting around to find someplace more comfortable, and never really achieving it. I found this Sargent seat to be immeasurably more comfortable.
Understand that in order to have a custom seat made you must send in your pan.
