With my previous Sargent ('07) I then also had my stock seat for commuting, to let it bake in the sun all day, and prolong the life of the Sarg. When I sold the bike, I sold the Sargent separately, recouping well over half its purchase price.
Now with Sargent for the new gen bikes I lose that option, as I did with this Russell. For my new bike I actually bought another stock seat for commuting, and I leave the Russell at home. Same thing, down the road when I sell the bike, I'll recoup way more than the $200 I spent on the extra OEM seat. It's nice to have options, incl. when leaving the bike with a mechanic, I can keep my Russell safe at home. I'm funny that way...
