So I am someone who is usually fine with the stock seat. I rode it for 11 hours in one day, with a hour and a half long break in the middle. That ride made me feel like I couldn't justify the money for a new seat.
Lucky for me, I have a buddy who works at Saddlemen. They finally finished development on their "Adventure Seat" for the '12 Wee and needed some photos of it on a bike, so he shipped one out to me. What a sweet birthday gift. It arrived today and I hope to have it installed tomorrow. I will likely be riding it this weekend, 3 hours each way. I will report back early next week with some photos and thoughts.
From what he said it is not on sale yet, but they hope to have it available soon.
If I like it, I may have a spare stock seat for someone looking to try one of the other mods.
Initial thoughts: 1. The seat looks nice.
2. It has more padding towards the sides and a little less in the center, you can see where the stitching is in the photos. I will see if that is noticeable once I sit on it. Maybe it will relieve some pressure on the jewels that many have mentioned.
3. It has some d-rings on the side of the pillion seat to strap a bag done with. It has some nice velcro covers that conceal the d-rings when you aren't using them. The straps that the d-rings are attached to are riveted to the seat pan and not sewn to the seat material. The label on the bottom says you shouldn't strap more than 20 lbs to the seat using these.
4. You need to take the rear mounting bracket off your current seat and install it on this seat.
