Ok, I hurried home to sneak a ride in between the rain drops yesterday. Instantly, upon leaving my driveway I started to think the seat was made for me. (guess it was, paid to have options I wanted) I did a quick ride around the neighborhood and noticed a big difference. No falling forward during stopping, and no pressure on the "taint" any longer. It feels like you are sitting on your butt like normal. It does feel a tad taller, which would make sense since the pad seems thicker. It is a bit heavier too. It dropped in place on the bike the first try and without issue. No tool stowage like the stocker though. It is firm, which Corbin always mentions. I cannot wait to rail this thing around the ramps with a seat that keeps you in place. Last Sunday I took a guy with me riding the FZ1 I was selling and did a few around the clover leaf. I actually felt like I was on a hopity hop. I had the stock seat and airhawk with almost no air. The guy I was with races dirt bikes and does lots of track days on an sv650. He followed and later commented on what a good rider i am. I blushed a little and said thanks. If he thought I could ride while feeling like I was doing the moon bounce I imagine it will be better with this seat. For inquiring minds, there is 6'3" and 245lbs on the seat for your reference. If the seat holds up I will again keep Corbin in the front end for choices. The seat they made for the FZ1 felt like a cinder block under a bare bottom. That was back in 2002. I haven't given them another glance until now. They seem to care about bikes that are not Harleys now and the quality and construction seems much more thought out.(called them about issues and they basically blew me off) I am happy with this major purchase though.
Hope this helps others that might be interested.
