Sargents are good. I had one for many years on my Wee.
I'm using a second Shad seat now and it is fine. The first was one of two sent to the US for evaluation. It went back to Spain.
The second one is the production version and it is as comfortable a seat as most would want on a V-Strom. With riding pants you can ride for several days without fatigue. In jeans you can ride most of the day in good comfort, but you will feel a little fatigue after about 6 hours or so. For comparison I would be hanging a butt cheek off the stock seat for relief after about three hours.
Your experience may vary.
I'm hoping to finally see some other Vee2s at the eastern gathering this year and let some others try it.
So what did they lower the price to?
There is a seat here from California that sounds pretty interesting too. You get the foam and cover and put it on the stock seat pan. Much more cost effective than buying a hole new seat, but I don't know much about it myself.
