Seat Concepts for Adventure first impressions

I got the "tall" version. At first it looked like it was going to be inches taller than my stock 2010 990 adventure seat, but after I pulled the staples from my stock seat and put it on the bike, it feels pretty good, not much taller than stock.
The cut of it reminds me of the best seat I've ever had, SARGENT. Bums me out they don't make one for the KTM.
Install was a breeze, I didnt use the silicone spray like they suggest, just the 3m adhesive and the staples.... and a bit of patients.
Its nice and wide, but narrow up front so you can touch the ground if your 5ft 11 like me. I have yet to put any real miles on it, but after my upcoming 3000 mile+ trip at the end of April, I hope to submit rave reviews. Otherwise, I'll be SORELY disappointed.
PS, gripper center with carbon sides and orange stitch looks pretty classy

If its anything like the 690 seat it's nice and wide but they take the width too far forward. It's a bit annoying when stopped at lights or on side of road, it doesn't need to be that wide that far forward, still prefer it over the stock seat though.

just ordered one yesterday. I ditched a Renazco immediately after buying the bike. Horrible seat. Got a Dakar seat which is pretty darn comfy. But I also acquired a stock flat seat so that one will get the SC foam. Looking forward to my first rides with the SC seat

I'm really happy with mine.
I ordered the Tall and then cut it down a bit to my liking.
(06 S model, S stands for sky scraper.) Very comfy after a long day of riding.

Not to veer off course here, but how do you you like the Sargent? Tried a Corbin, Seat Concepts, and now a Renazco, which looks promising.

They seemed to be priced right.
