Welcome to the club. Best addition I have made.Bit the bullet & finally got a Daylong after trying many different things & seats , all of which worked very little .The Daylong is all it is said to be ,My 2015 650 VStrom is now a long distance cruiser.My Butt Has never been so happy.
Well said. I've had my RDL for a few years. I bought the removable driver's backrest which is adjustable, but I only use it on longer rides. The seat essentially makes you tippy toe due to wide "wings" that prevent legs from going straight down. This has not been a problem thankfully. Also I can still stand up when off road with no hindrance. Obviously the comfort is unparalleled. I've owned three Corbins, two Sargents and three Seat Concepts seats (on different model bikes) and NONE come close to the truly day long comfort of a RDL seat.Bit the bullet & finally got a Daylong after trying many different things & seats , all of which worked very little .The Daylong is all it is said to be ,My 2015 650 VStrom is now a long distance cruiser.My Butt Has never been so happy.
very good point. I've tried and still own all of the following:The key to this post is the OP statement about "trying many different things and seats".
Think about how much gets spent on the latest bead cover, sheepskin, airhawk, kayak pad by owners here. Then think about how many try other seats and seat kits. Many swear they are comfortable for all day.....yet you read that a few months later they have some other "final" solution.
You don't hear much about needing to try a different seat cushion or pad from Russell Day-Long owners. Spend the money up front and be satisfied for the life of the bike.
Tell me that isn't cheaper than what too many spend on solutions that don't work!
