No longer available at Sandhill...

You at least get a good return policy and double warranty at Sargent seat direct. I ordered mine yesterday and about 2 week wait.,

Yeah - but for $100 difference in price.

Granted, I'm tired of my butt and legs hurting from the stock seat after 500 miles in the saddle, but I still have a hard time justifying over $400. I can justify it at $319, but that is about the most I'm willing to spend.

I know, I'm a cheap bastard - but I don't have money trees in my back yard.

I bought my Sargent from Sandhills. I just checked now and the Strom seat is no longer listed on their web page. Maybe they've sold their allotment for this year? Their price was pretty darn good.

It's a GREAT seat. I have the double heated version and feel very good on it.

Just bought a $319 Sargent Seat

Purchased Sargent seat online through MAW (Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse). Drove the bike twice and the upholstery started tearing on both sides. I contacted Sargent directly and they have had me ship it to them, at my cost, for repair/replacement. I think it would have been wiser and maybe cheaper in the long run to order directly through Sargent.

Get the Suzuki gel seat, works about as good as Sargent and mine cost like $79. The Sargent is a good seat but it has a box on the underside for storage that hits your but on long rides. Or take send your stock seat to Spencer, he does wonders for cheap.

I'm looking at Sargent now too. Sporttour sells them now for $369.

Isn't one of the knocks on the gel seat how hot the gets in the summer sun? I live in Oklahoma and don't want to ride home on a lava bed after a days work.

Y'all can keep spending big $$$ and I will applaud your patriotic efforts to stimulate the economy, but after trying a Sargent on the Wee and various custom and Corbin seats on other bikes this is still the best solution I have found:

But that's just my old butt -- yours may be more shapely.:)

Yes, the gel seat gets very hot when sitting in the sun. Bothered me enough that I yanked the gel when I had some mods done on my seat. I think I gave up some comfort but for me it was a fair trade.

I bought a Sargent through Sandhill a few weeks ago, $325 including shipping, not sure they have seats or not, BUT they do have a 15 day return policy, 10% re-stock fee and you pay return shipping. I believe direct through Sargent is $429 PLUS shipping.

Box?

Mine came with an awesome soft plastic tube that bungies to a contour in the seat pan. Its perfect for stashing my tire repair kits. Maybe a newer version.
