Russell Seat ????

I have a Russell on my Goldwing & am completly satisfied. Because of that I'm considering one for the KLR. I don't plan on serious LD rides with the KLR, butt will probably ride 250 mile plus days often.

For those that have a Russell on your KLR, I have a question. And if you have a short inseam that's better 'cause I can relate to that!
Because of the "wings" on the Russell do they get in your way when riding off road? On the GW, as I come to a stop, I need to slide forward slightly so I can reach the ground.

The Russell seat on my KLR doesn't allow me to flat foot, like the stock and Travelcade seats did. But for offroading, I haven't noticed the wings at all.. If I have to stand, I'm typically over the rear of the tank, ahead of the wings.

When road riding, I'm just a really happy camper..

Russell seat

My question is will a seat made for a '07 KLR directly fit onto the '08 model?
