Latest addition is the Sargent Seat. We'll see this weekend if it's worth the price.

It's a very neutral seat. It does not offer great comfort, but the main complaint with the stock seat was "cut in" at the thigh area. My first initial ride did not compound this problem, nor was it dismissed. I will need a few more rides to figure out how it stacks up. I'll be riding again this weekend. I'm also working on an SC seat to compare the two. The Sargent seat offers no cushy comfort, but an 84 minute ride did not elicit the same lower body discomfort as the stock seat. More to come. Be patient. It will take time for a real evaluation that helps others.

Not looking for cushy. Thats what my goldwing is for. Just looking to not crush portions of my "lower body"

Understood and agree partially. My butt is used to a very hard bicycle seat, for many years now.
The stock seat had some foam give, even though there's not much foam there. The Sargent does not have that. Make sense?
The SC seat has more foam in an effort, I assume, to make it more of an all day seat. That's to be determined for me in the future, but others have said it's only a little better than stock. I'll find out myself. Again, my initial feeling with the Sargent is you could stay on it for quite some time without lower body fatigue. Hope that clarifies some things.

Wait, Willow Beach? I lived in North Bay as a kid, many years ago. Love Canyada, my daughter's joke with me.

I bought the Sargent on the strength of online reviews of their product on other bikes.
Im hoping it lives up to it. My criticism of the stock seat is that the foam is too soft allowing me to feel the seat pan pressing up.
We love Canyada too. We are about an hour north of Toronto on the south shore of Lake Simcoe.
