I am currently running the Saddleman Adventure Tour seat. Similar to @Brockie's and @blaustrom's seat, but the channel is covered over, and no suede. This seat has changed the bike totally.Its a little higher than stock ( the WEE version). Easy do 10+ hours on it. Its flat and you can move a bit on it and works like a larger road bicycle seat. Sold the WEE and the seat.
I have a Saddlemen Adventure Track seat for my 2009 Vstrom 650 and I do not like it even a little bit. For me, it is just way too hard and I cannot ride it for more than a half hour. It also sits me up higher. It looks real nice, and is very well made. I wish I could sell it or trade it for a Russel or Corbin. I currently have a Sargent on it, which is not perfect, but it is better, for me, than the Saddlemen. I realize seats are subjective, depending on personal taste and height and weight.Looking for a replacement seat for my '09 650. A friend recommended saddleman. I have no experience with them and looking to hear what others say.
I know Russell makes great ones - at a price. Saddleman seems to be not a whole lot cheaper.
