    I have had several different seats on other bikes, Russell, Corbin, Rick Mayer, Sargent, some seats worked well on some bikes and not on others.
    I bought a Russell for GL1800 and did not like, got money back and bought a Corbin and loved it.
    I also have a Sargent seat for the DL650 which is lower than stock seat, I use it when riding double.
    I can sit flat footed with knees bent but not as comfortable on long days.
    Corbin has a complaint of too hard, never bothered me. They are nice, flat and wide, so moving around is easy.
    Russell and Mayer seats put you in a pocket. Corbin uses closed cell foam, water wont soak in.
    Rick Mayer is also a good choice if your considering Russell. the are both in No.Calif, near where I live.
    Give them a call Mayer and Russell are both good people and easy to with.
    A good seat is one you don't feel while riding.

    PS maybe should post this may help others decide on a seat purchase.

    Did you get my reply,
    I ride a '07 DL650
    First let me say, I have never had a sock seat I loved.
    I would recommend the Russell seat, I've had it on other bikes also. I opt for the vinyl (water proof, the lees stitching the better),
    I do prefer leather but they use open cell foam so if it gets wet the water will soak in and mold.
    They do have covers though. The seat is taller than stock so if your legs allow it will give you more leg room. I have a 31" inseam and I'm on toes at stops, also the bike was lowered about 2".
    I have the S-2 solo, they build the front and just recover the back, they did build the rear seat up slightly so passenger doesn't slide forward,
    did not charge extra. I paid about $375-400 don't remember. The dual builds the front and rear.

    Ok I will have to look him up. Just bought an 07 with 3500 miles on it from Happy Trails in Boise. Just need to find the time to fly up and ride it home. I told the wife I gotta hurry because the snow will be flying in a month or so...
