Twin Cities, MN seat comparo/tryout/swap ride thingy

My DL650 came with a Sargent seat that so far I think blows goats. So i'd like to try some other seats before before buying 5 different ones to see which one I'd like.

Anyone else in the metro area in the same boat and want to try some different ones? We could get together to go for a ride and all swap seats throughout the ride to check them out.

Obviously we would all agree to take the sharp objects out of our rear pockets and not drag boots while mounting/dismounting.

Post up if you are interested.

Yea we should go for a ride to swap and check them out.

Do you have a 1000 or a 650 stock seat?

So far I have rode on the Suzuki "Touring" seat and the Suzuki "Gel" seat. Neither are the answer, for me at least.

I sat on a 650 stock seat but didn't ride the bike with it, seemed too low. I hope to try a stock 1000 seat.

I have a 1000 seat on my 650 that I'm willing to let people try.
I'm in waconia, pm me if you still want to do this as I rarely check the regionals

Sounds good, it might have to be next spring as I don't see myself riding much more this year.
