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.
Although this might not be the right thread, I think you will like the Sargent seat. The SC seat, which I finished today, still has some of the same attributes of the OEM, but with softer foam. It's okay, but you "feel" it. The Sargent seat, as I said, is neutral. Good luck. Go Moosehead!

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.
What is this SC seat ?

Oh, sorry. Seat Concepts. Foam and cover, I attached myself yesterday. Rode a couple times, but allergies kept me out of action most of the time. Spent more time with my family though as it was still nice here in Seattle. Cheers.

I finally get to post in this thread. Got my Liquid Graphite last Saturday as an early Christmas present from my wife. She was going to wait till Christmas and surprise me, but we "went to go look at the different colors" (so she knew which one to get later) and we found this one being wheeled in for a trade in with 600 miles on it by a lady who said it was too big and downsizing to the FZ-07. Got a killer deal on it that was too good to pass up.
