    the shape is much more like the Corbin I have on my KLR, which I find is near-perfect. Wider than stock so it's more comfortable but way easier to move around on than the other Sargent seat. Hard to tell from the picture but it looks a bit less sloped than the stocker too. Now I'm interested.

    Too bad it is a half inch higher than the stock seat.

    I'm almost touching flat footed with the stock seat and I wouldn't feel comfortable going any higher.

    It looks like a great seat, but that half inch is a deal breaker for me.

    God Bless,

    Someone buy one and give us a review :ear
    As far as flat footing it I think the K12RS was the last bike I had that I could actually flat foot. I couldn't even flat foot both feet with the RT. As long as I can get the balls of my feet down I'm good. It just takes a little time in the saddle to be comfy without both feet completely flat on the ground. How much time do you really spend sitting on the bike and not moving :wink:

    I returned the First Sargent seat...didn't like the way it looked and it felt a little low even though it was the "same height". I am currently running a TT high breathable and I think I may just sell that and get one of these.

    this really looks like a nice seat....and I don't mind how the stock seat looks and have even learned ways to relieve those wonderful pressure points on long rides. Stock seat is tolerable but if this seat works out...once we have some reviews...I am thinking the 1/2 inch I could learn to deal with as well...I would love more comfort, who wouldn't and the price isn't that bad!

    A two by six should be better than a two by four, that makes sense. :roflSeriously though, it might be good, esp with one of those alaska sheepskin butt pad thingies.

    Wish that was an option before I bought mine, not sure if I would have got it, but wish it was an option.

    I just ordered one. I really like the shape of the stock seat as it's easy to move around on, but I have to stop every hundred miles or so. That was a compromise I was willing to live with. I don't imagine the Sargent will be perfect, but I hope it will be an even better compromise. I'll post photos as soon as it arrives.

    Do you know if there is a long wait or are they in stock?

    My limit is about 50-60 miles. :huh That stock seat is vicious. Of course, I bought the bike Saturday, did over 400 miles. Was so sore I figured I needed some 'hair of the dog' and rode a couple hundred more miles on Sunday. It rained on Monday and I don't have any luggage so I had to drive. Rode Tuesday (35 mile commute each way). Sold my bike yesterday and couldn't ride and rode again today. I am not sure I've given myself time to recover...but I don't care. :lol3

    I ordered mine this morning, and the confirmation says 1-2 weeks lead time. I'll post up the review here once it is received. I'm really hoping this one does it.

    I've got the stock flat seat which is pretty good but it slops forward which can be a bit of a pain on long days. The more level and bit wider Seargent looks very interesting.

    Would appreaciate hearing what you think after you have used you new Seargent seat a while.

    Wow, finally an aftermarket seat I like! I was on the bike for 6 hours yesterday, I'm definitely ready for a new seat...

    After 40 miles away from the dealership my seat took a priority over bike storage. I commend you for lasting so long. :lol3

    Haha the funny thing is that the day before I rode for less than half that long, and it hurt a lot more! I suppose the decent amount of time standing up offroad helped yesterday... I can't last nearly that long on asphalt!

    I've only had my bike on dirt for about 3 miles of the nearly 1k I've put on it. :lol3 I'm also not a dirt rider and I'm working on the standing up comfortably-thing. :D
