My opinion on the Sargent seat
I just thought I'd pass on my 2 cents about the Sargent seat since everyone was kind enough to offer their opinion when asked.
So I've had it about 3 months now and no complaints.
Pros: Definitely more comfortable than the stock seat. If I'm getting a little uncomfortable or numb, I can push back a bit to the wider part of the seat. Pretty much to the length of my arms and it takes the pressure off; "spreads the wealth" per say. I think if I changed my handle bars to close the gap, it might make it more comfortable yet.
Cons: Depending on the pants one wears, it can be a bit slippery. Jeans are ok. My first time really riding with the new seat I was heading to work, wearing my ABUs. I was sitting a little further back. When I hit the brakes I figured it out real quick as my junk met the gas tank. It took a little getting used to but I'm good with it now.
Overall I'm satisfied with my purchase and would recommend it to someone looking for an upgrade from stock.
