Eagerly awaiting pics (and your experience with the seat) Mark...

Sneak preview:







More to come once I get it home and put it back on the bike. And sit on it.

Just the rider's seat done by RR? Or did you get a passenger seat also?

Just the rider's seat. I don't sit on the pillion seat, and I don't carry passengers, hence, no point spending the money.

Okay, here are a couple of shots of the seat on the bike.





Looks great IMO, and the test sit felt comfy, but of course I'll need to wait till I can get out for a long ride to know for sure. Can't wait! Unfortunately, it's January in Vermont, so it'll likely be a little while...

How much Mark if you don't mind me asking ? What did you actually have done - don't you send them your seat pan for them to work on ?

Yeah, they use the existing seat pan. I mentioned that the dish of the seat didn't work well for me (a little flatter, I figured, would work better), and that the padding was a little too soft. So they built it with a flatter shape and seat foam for my weight. Really wish I could head out for a nice long ride to see how it works out!

Price was $375 plus shipping.

Has anyone installed the sw motech centerstand? (i know the charcoal canister needs to be removed on US bikes) Found out today that triumph will not have the revised centerstand for sale in the US until July so was thinking about going the motech route. This would be for my roadie.

Thanks

I'm pretty happy with the stock seat (I have plenty of padding...) but good to know there's an option out there. Heard nothing but good about those seats.

The stock seat on the Tiger is the most comfortable seat I have ever had on a new bike. Guess there is always room for improvement.

+1 I have the gel seat and couldn't be happier with its comfort.

That's one nice looking seat mod though!

Corbin

I have a Corbin that should arrive any day. I ordered it right after they listed it on the web site, so mine may be one of the first as well. Anyway, will get pics up after I get it as well as a short review. It is about 100 bucks more than the Renazco.

I couldn't stand my stock seat much more than an hour or two in the saddle.
