Thumbs up Just got my 919 Solo Sargent Seat

My seat got the full treatment. Premium foam upgrade, restyled for that solo look, covered with pebble grain vinyl, and finished off with topstitching.

To supersize the photos go to http://m51142.googlepages.com/919page scroll down to the bottom of the page then click on any pic.

Seat looks great, but I don't see much of a differance for the solo look. Maybe it's best to save your money on that part.

I do not agree with that statement. Look at your seat, the passenger section is flat. Mine is humped and round. It all depends on the look you are after. I have no intention of ever riding 2 up!

That is just gorgeous, Mike. That topstitch with the gunfighter style really accentuates the bike's lines. Really nice!

I know where my money is going after the Galfer group buy. Looks great MisterMike. Feel the envy! Thanks for the stickers they look great.

I definitely see the hump... Very cool! And the quality looks top-notch.
Is the surface grippy? I find the stock seat a bit on the slippery side.

By the way, I'm just drilling the venting hole in gas cap. I loved it, thanks Mr. Mike.

Mike and SSS, both of your seats look great!...

Mike.. I think we should have gone with a Group Buy of an upgraded Sarget Seat for our 919s rather then the stinky Gas Cap!

SSS.. Did you use the same setup as the attahced sketch that Rudi did for another 919 owner?..

Thanks alot guys..

Pebble grain looks better as a seat rather than a sample. I like it. NO. I LOVE it! Gimme Gimme Gimme!

I just asked for the premium foam upgrade, which should be what that sketch was. I haven't taken this new seat out for a really long ride yet. So I'll reserve my praise for it till after it proves it's worth.

That's funny! I found the stock seat to be too sticky. Waxy is the word I used to describe it. That was one of the main reasons I sent my seat to Sargent as well, to get a slipperier seat. Personally, I want to be able to move around on the seat with ease. To each his own I guess?

See, I put on clipons, so I tend to slide forward now, i could use a tad more grip.

I agree, I like a slicker surface, easier to move around on and would especially help when it is hot and the behind gets sweaty, then a grippy seat is a nightmare.

Both seats look awesome! That price seems quite reasonable.

So the seating surface was flattened out as well as upgraded foam installed, correct? Interested to hear how it treats you on a 400-500 mile ride.

One more thing I need to add to my mod list...

They do look very nice. Can't believe I sat around and waffled through November failing to take advantage of the sale! I am interested in the long term comfort of the flatter "dished" shaped saddle. My buddy's BMW has a Corbin on it of similar design that is quite comfy. I'm sure that the shape is important, but the foam must be the key. I can legitimately hang for 8 1/2 hours in the stock saddle, however everything after that is sheer misery.

Got my Sargent back a day or two ago as well. Good workmanship as expected and good fit and finish. Haven't had a chance to take a ride on it yet as it showed up just as we got into a cold and wet spell here in SoCal. I'm hoping to take her out over the weekend when the temps will get back closer to 60+. I'll try to post some pictures once I get it out in the sun!

Good to hear RR. Still a bit chilly today - about 50 degs here in Temecula, but we have some sunshine so I might just have to go out for a quick ride! It was snowing down in the eastern regions of San Diego this morning. What's this world coming to???


Anywhooo... glad to hear that Sargent has a quality product.
