I wanted to get everyone's opinion on the Saddlemen seats for sport bikes. I am looking to get one for my bike because I cannot stand to ride as much as I do anymore with this stiff stock seat. If you have one, want one, have a friend that has one etc, please chime in. So far I am hearing great things. I saw their booth at the Del Amo Motorsports parking lot sale over the weekend. Pretty cool stuff.

Had one for my R6 and now my 300. Can't say enough good things about them.

Which one did you get. I saw they have one for track use too. The Chicane is what they call it. That one doesn't have gel. I want a nice one for riding. It's on my list of bike mods!

I bought the Tech model with the foam and gel (neoprene cover). Only downside to that model is it isn't waterproof.

Looks awesome. I am getting the Track-CF. Can't wait! I really want something that will allow me to grip better in a lean. From what I have heard people don't want to ride anything else once they've ridden a Saddlemen.

Had a saddleman on my cruiser once. Came with the bike when I bought it. Was the most comfortable bike seat I ever had. About two years later I spent a small fortune and swapped it for a Mustang seat because I ruined the leather on my saddleman do to my stupidly. I chose the mustang seat because I liked the look of them better and it had a bunch of good reviews. It was the worst decision I ever made. Saddleman was 10x more comfortable in my opinion. I kept the Mustang seat hoping it just needed to "break in" but after 4 more years it's still not as comfortable as the saddleman was. If I had to do it again I would either have had the seat re-covered or just bought a new one.
