SO's first ride, aftermarket seat ?


Recommended Posts

just back from first significant ride with my SO, she did great but was a little sore from the seat. Any suggestions on an aftermarket pillion to make her more comfortable?? i might need a better seat also but am extremely tall and worried about changing the geometry for for my legs. Ive been reading this site for months but just now am contributing so mi know the great advice that is on here and hope y'all can help me too

Not knowing where you live,makes it difficult.You should see if one of the major seat guys lives anywhere nearby and then schedule a drive in appointment...Thats the best way to get what you want and what fits the best.

My so found both the Corbin and Sargent seats on my RT's to be a vast improvement to the stock seat. Too bad you are far away, I often let riders near me try out one of my 4 different RT seats.

I have a Sargeant on my RT. I love it. The missus likes it as well. I think it is much better than the Corbin on the old Triumph. The missus thinks it is about the same.

Happy hunting!





Russell Almost universally liked - most prominent aftermarket seat among the long distance riding set - I did a 1000 mile day as a pillion with no complaints - I've had one on my own bike for 80,000 miles and still love it.

Corbin Had one on my R1200C - they build a harder, flatter, heavier seat on their own pan - defintely increased my comfort on the bike - fit and finish not so great - customer service very hit and miss.
