I recently ordered a Russell Day Long saddle. I've wanted to try one for years, but due to my short stature, I didn't think I could flat foot it on a GS with a Russell Day Long.. WRONG!! http://www.day-long.com/ I sent my order with 2 pics of me on my bike, and told them my stock saddle is tilted too far forward crushing the jewels... I just received it and I can't believe how comfortable is it, and how they've managed to sculpt it so narrow at the front, so I can flat foot it with ease on my 12GS. I went with the new Half Moon design, which has the least amount of stitching on the surface. It's leather with vinyl sides, which is what they recommended for the GS, and it costs less than all leather. The seating area is all leather, built on a spring subframe.. what a difference! I expected my saddle sometime in January, as my build date was early Dec. At it turned out, they squeezed mine in on days without ride in appointments and it was done in about a week after they received my stock saddle pan. Customer service was top notch as well. Shipping to Canada wasn't a problem. The saddle arrived in about a week's time by USPS Express! Here's what the stock seat looks like next to the Russell seat. Notice how much narrower at the front the Russell is, to allow my 30" inseam on my 5' 9" to reach the ground. Every seat is unique and is built to match the customer's height and weight. It's narrower at the front and wider at the rear to support your butt... Can't wait to take it out for a long ride... but just from sitting on it, it's more comfortable than the padded chair I'm sitting on to write this report. As they say, often imitated, never duplicated! A completely positive experience. Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten! And the price wasn't any more than any other custom seat builder.
