Has anyone bought the Sargent Solo seat yet? I love the look of this seat but am reluctant to spend so much money on a seat before I hear some reviews.

I almost got the solo seat but went for the two-up instead.. cheaper, better for both for passenger and luggage options, and in retrospect it even look better. Plus, it allows me to slide back and forth much more during long rides.

It's a hell of a lot more comfortable than the standard seat and just as water-proof - unlike the somewhat cheaper Mustang seat. Unless you're on a severly limited budget, go for the Sargent. The only critisism I have is that the plastic bit that fits into the.. what's it called.. female bit under the tank is smaller than on the standard seat, which allows the seat to move sideways every time I get on or off the bike. I suppose 10 rounds of duct tape will fix the issue.

On a further note; on paper the seating position is the same, but the Sargent is a bit broader. With 30" inseam the differerence for me is that my heels no longer touch the ground.

Thanks, that's very helpful. I particularly like the look of the solo seat and I don't carry passengers, but your point about being able to move around on a seat is worth thinking about.

Just had a look at Sargent UK and both seats are the same price here, £379! That's a lot of money for a motorcycle seat, but I think it's the best looking seat I've seen. The thing that concerns me most is the height, it's 15 mm lower than stock.

Hmm yeah, I must have remembered incorrectly. Keep in mind that the stock seat forces you to, well, teabag the tank. The dimple in the Sargent seat is a bit further back, which gives you more legroom.
