Sargent seat tearing??

I've just heard from another V-Strom forum user (JWT) that he has a tearing issue were the seat contact the bike on the sides. I just purchase this seat form Adventure Motostuff and if this is an issue maybe I should consider the Corbin!

I would post a pic of the very small tears on each side of my sargeant for you, but I am woefully inept w/ operating this blackberry of mine. I wouldn't worry about it ruggybuggy. I don't feel like the seat is junky in any way and don't regret ordering it. The "damage" is only visible if you really look hard, and could probably be avoided if you put a strip of duct tape over the plastic edges that the seat can make contact w/ on either side as you're installing it. Sargeant will repair these I'm told, but I plan to either ignore it or put a small piece of strong black tape on the tiny scuffed/torn area. It's a good seat, I may have been a little rough w/ it a couple of times.

What he said. Sarg answers fast and answers well, that was my main reason for choosing them over Russell.

That's what I think it is. Mine is tearing a bit there as well, but I think its from laying it down on the concrete floor more than from rubbing the bike. Since I stopped putting it on the floor it has not torn any more and its holding up fine.

Thanks guys for the responses. I'll keep the Sargent on order. I was thinking of the Corbin but didn't want leather.
