    Saddles are very personal, one brand works well for one guy, but is torture for another. I tried tried both Russel and Sargent before finally landing on BMS (Bill Mayer Saddles) when they were up in Ojai. They rough out the foam and have you go out and test ride for 1/2 hour or so, come back to the shop and fine tune. Repeat the process until you are happy. Make an appointment with BMS who is now in Ventura, and note that it is NOT his flaky brother!

    I had one of his saddles on the vstrom rode that thing for over 150k miles before selling the bike.
    Best saddle I ever had but the Corbin I have for the Stelvio is a very close second
