It's pissing rain right now so once the weather clears I'll throw a pic up with natural lighting.
I got a few up on this thread if you scan back. But they may not be close enough for what you want to look at.
Thanks Frank. Yours has the matte black top?
and Pigskin sides if I remmeber correctly.
This is marine grade vinyl too.
My pic from the inaugural ride is in post #57. Back when she was all new and shiny.

What I'm 12 ? Need my forks back quick.....
Nothing like a buff and polish. Speaking of your forks, how long did traxxion say the turnaround would be?
They were working on forks that were recieved about 10 days back. They said they red tagged mine for a rush. I didnt ask for that. Nice people there, I must say.
So, have any of you had a chance to take a passenger on one of these seats? It looks like it gets pretty thin towards the back, not sure if it looks like the type of seat you could keep a passenger in for a 200 mi trip?
You are correct it is thinner at the back end of it. I have not had a passenger onboard.
I think this is done to help flatten or level, then seat.
Sexy. So he will only do suede on the top? How grippy is it compared to stock? I'm going into the shop on the 5th to spec my seat and have no idea what to pick.
This is only his second suede seat and I'm not sure if he will do a full seat in suede. I really like the feel so far, but I only have about two hours of seat time. I'm 6'-2" and had the seat for the vertically challenged, so I have a lot to evaluate: height, slope and grip
I too was unsure about picking out the colors, so I went with his suggestion. I'm a very happy customer.
I had asked him about suede and he said he wasn't doing them, how did you get the suede option???:huh
I was just lucky with my timing. J Renazco was working on a suede seat for another (f800) customer when I dropped off my seat so I guess he figured out a way to make the suede work. I'll post up if there are any issues, but I honestly don't expect any.
Beautiful seat. Comfy long haul is the question? I've owned a lot of bikes and put on a lot of road miles all told, many long distance runs including Anchorage to Los Angeles for one... the best seat I've ever done long distance is, no question, no hesitation, Corbin.
Corbin's are strangely hard at first, however, butt comfort and/or pain quickly becomes forgotten and you just get on with riding. It is a strange phenomenon to so thoroughly forget there was ever a problem, which in the end, (pun intended) is the point. I seem to remember a Corbin on another 800GS here, but apparently rare.
Anyway, curious, good looking as the Renazco is, how it stacks up long days.
Can someone please tell me if the long days on this seat are pain-free?
Absolutely pain free!!!! I started this thread and this seat is the bee's knees! No pain whatsoever, no matter how long I ride!!!
It looks thin but comfortable...
On order, now that suede is an option. Can you believe the build date is now Dec.27th.....:eek1
