Welcome to the forum, Dru. You'll find plenty of suggestions here, I'm sure.

Welcome aboard, Dru

I am very happy with my Sargent seat.  Just took a trip to Eureka Springs, Ark (850 miles each way) and my butt never felt uncomfortable

Welcome to the board DG. If you make it to the rally in Johnson City there will be a variety of seats to sit on and choose from. You can decide for yourself what you like and dislike.  :thumbs:

Welcome Dru! Lots of info on seats in the forum. I have a Corbin and am pretty happy with it. Don't have much to compare it with though outside of the stock seat.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone.

1)  Anyone own the  Saddlemen Explorer rS seat?  Are you happy with it?

2) I did something dumb last Saturday and rode with Short pants.  Burned my leg on the exhaust pipe.
    I'm looking to install a heat shield on the pipe under the right driver footpeg.  Anyone have a recommendation?

Thanks in advance.
