  2. I sent my seats to these folks.

    http://www.meancitycycles.com

    I got the seats back in short time and they seem to have been modified with great care. I have only sat on the seats in the barn and made cool engine sounds so far as ice covered roads do not tempt me anymore. But they do seem to be more comfortable than the original seats.

    The cost was a lot less than new seats and I don't have a old set of seats to dispose of.

    As soon as I get more than .001 miles on them I can give you a better review.

    I don't know if Sargent makes seat for cruisers or not, but their seats are awesome. The Sargent seat on my 2005 Aprilia Tuono is light years better than the Corbin seat on my 2007 Aprilia Tuono. The Corbin is barely more comfortable than the stock seat and the holes don't line up with the frame not to mention the seat pan looks like it was made by a Chinese sweatshop worker.

    When I had my sv650 I had a sargent seat, heck, they even put a convertible top on a car my mom had. They do nice work, but, I had a seam come apart on my sv's seat.

    No problem, I cruised over to their shop and asked them about fixing it. They pretty much called me a liar and claimed I tore the seat. I tired to explain that the stitching failed. They pretty much gave me the finger and told me to pound sand.

    I will never buy another one of their products.

    I had a local upholstery shop fix the seat, they said it was a defect as well.

    For a cruiser, I can't speak highly enough for the Mustang seat. While it's a bit pricey ($460.00 for the two piece), IMO it's worth every penny. My wife and I do 300-400 mile days frequently. With the stock seat we were in agony but with the Mustang it's no problem.

    So how exactly does the bead seat help?

    My buddy swears by them and wants me to try one.

    you are probably right, however i can not afford the 700+ bucks they want for one. It is like 250 ea for driver and pass. Plus we are heavy add 125 ea for that, shipping both ways.. we are over 700 bucks..

    Then the low bucks approach would depend of the defects in the original seat. I have never had a good Corbin, but I have had Sargent seats that were a big improvement over stock. Sometimes you can reshape it with foam and recover it yourself. Alaskan Leather sheepskin pads work wonders and 2 million Iranian cab drivers cannot be wrong about wooden beads.

    Good luck solving the puzzle within the constraints. That's where new solutions come from. Something about necessity being a mother.

    latest update is because of high cost of some seats we have elected to buy a new mustang regal seat.. should be here middle of next week..
    will see how that works
     
  18. First it allows air flow under yer butt to prevent Monkey Butt.

    Second, the best way I can describe it is: its almost like a little massage.

    I have a regular stock seat. During the above mentioned ride I remembered reading about one LD rider who would alternate between his stock seat bare, and with the beads so his butt doesn't get tired of one or the other. I tried this and made it about 10 minutes before I put the beads back down. This was after a Saddle Sore 1000 (1K in less than 24 hours) and about halfway through another 500 miles the next day. The beads stayed on the rest of the ride!!!

    another thing the beads do for me is ever so slightly add about 1/2" in height to the seat. Again, its a regular stock seat, and I should technically have a "tallboy" seat. It is amazing what a little adjusting can do to a ride!
