Just thought I’d drop you a line and tell you how much I like my new saddle. When I left your shop, the seat felt fine, but it wasn’t until I’d ridden the first 800 mile day that I really appreciated it.
The last day of the MOA rally (Sat) I found out I had to be in Dallas for a meeting Tuesday afternoon. I also had to go back through the national parks in southeastern Utah to take pictures for a story I was witing. Without consulting a map, I estimated about a 2000 mile trip. I got up Sunday morning and made it down to Gerlach, NV and on to the “Loneliest Road in America”, then spent the night in Ely.
That night I consulted the map and found I had an additional 1700 miles to cover. Plan B was then to get to Albuquerque, NM and catch a plane. That would leave me with a doable 900 to 1000 mile ride. Well, when I got to Albuquerque at 10 or 11 I felt fine and decided to go on to Amarillo and catch a plane from there. Of course when I got to Amarillo I said, “What the hell” and went on to Dallas. After 1700 miles and 32 hours I was a whipped pup, but neither my back nor butt was in pain. In fact, without your seat a ride like that would have been impossible. I have ridden my R1150GS 900 miles with the stock seat, but my yee-ha was sore for days. Your seat was not only comfortable, but isolated my body from much of the engine and road vibration.
