Can I try your seat? sargent, corbin, gel??? (bay area)

I've tolerated the stock seat on my strom long enough. It get's me about 20 miles before my ass is killing me, the wife and I are planning to do a few thousand miles this summer but if I don't get a better seat we won't make it out of the bay area. Tried the beads, just made it worse so I'm gunna have to spring for the real deal and was wondering if anyone would be willing to let me try theirs before I commit? I'm leaning towards the sargent but corbin and suzuki gel are in the running. wife's comfort is VERY important as well. If you are near by and would be willing to let me try your aftermarket seat I would be very grateful. Let me know. Thanks.

Sargent is good, Stock is NOT.

Just get a Sargent and be happy. I did and it rocks!

there was a used sargent seat for a VSTROM for sale on the craigslist, either SF bay area or sacramento... I cant remember. The guy wanted alot for it like 300 bucks but he may come down to reality if you call him. I know it doesnt help you on trying one out but thought you might like to know.

This place looks intriguing/clever - and lots less spendy than a whole "new" seat!

I've heard good things about Spencer Seats...but no direct experience.
