Yeah, I have a negative.
The damn thing is costing me an arm & leg in fuel $$$.
I've had to fill up the Strom once a day for the past 5 days straight!!!
Stick with the crappy stock seat, it helps save the environment.
Seriously though, the seat raised me up 1" and moved me back 1". I have Kouba lowering links now to compensate for the increased height (I'd not planned on them prior). I am still working on the 'reach' aspect, I need a longer set of risers. The positioning is pretty much spot on, I can ride for hours and not use my highway bars at all, my knees were so cramped up before and I never knew it.
Watch out for "trying out" a local Strom rider's seat. The Russell Day Longs are custom made, you'd have to find someone with your same ergonomics to compare apples to apples.
