I think I have issues..........Arse issues....

Can't stop picking up seats for my R1100S. Just want what works best for me. Just sharing, but eventually some will have to go.

Valve adjustment and Throttle body sync. was done last night along with new air filter and plugs. It's running much smoother now. I really haven't had many miles on any of them yet. Northeast Ohio doesn't have the most motorcycle friendly weather. Long story short: I'll keep you posted.

The seats from Left to right are:

OEM Seat with new vinyl cover and gel pad ( Both done by myself )
Not too happy with this seat. It just doesn't seem to fit me well, but
I still need more testing.

Sargent World Performance seat. Not really crazy about this one. She
was numbing my butt after 15 miles, but again....Vibrating motor.

Bill Mayer custom. I love this seat. Nice and wide and comfy. The only
problem is that the seat seems to force me forward into the tank a bit.
Not much, but enough to bug me a bit. I might use something to help
my rump stick in place a bit more.

I believe this is a Rich's seat. It's definitely custom. This is my favorite
so far. Nice balance and very comfy. No logos, so not sure if it is a Rich's,
but the stitching looks like it's one of theirs.

Corbin Smuggler. I just received this yesterday, and put about 30 miles
on it. It's hard, but not a really bad hard. The form cups the rump really
well. Just different from the rest. I was sore after the 30 miles, so as soon
as I got into the garage, I started taking off the valve covers to let it cool
down quicker for the valve adjustment.

I finished up about 10 PM last night, so I didn't get any more riding time
in. It's raining all day, so the brakes are on the books for this evening.

I'll definitely update with my opinions on these when I put more miles on them.

Thanks for looking.

Oh, and when I do decide which ones I'll keep, the others will be up for sale along with some Wunderlich R1100S Tail bags, and some other items. Shuberth C3 Pro Helmet, and much more. If anyone is interested, please PM.

Thanks again.

This is great but...

You should be telling us this in your den, where you have these seats trophy mounted on the walls, sipping bourbon, smoking a pipe, wearing a smoking jacket whilst sporting a ridiculously thick Scottish accent.

I now have coffee on my computer screen!

Now might be a good time to bring this up...and I am not trying to offend anyone but.........my nickname for Americans is "Bourbon Slurpers"!

I was the boss at work, and I'm used to being called all kinds of names.......so you are more than welcome to retaliate!

Cheers

This Bourbon Slurper prefers a peaty Scotch. Unfortunately, I can no longer afford it on the regular. We Yanks seem to have lost our knack for importing quality products and getting them to the shelf for a fair price. I digress.

Dom C., I've heard people rage about the custom seats that Corbin builds. I understand they are not only adorned to your liking but also butt specific. Hope you soon find comfort.

I find Corbin about as comfortable as a spiked cement bench & just as heavy Go Sargent!

Thanks for all the posts guys. I still haven't gotten much riding time. The weather has been brutal. I'd still like to pick up a Rich Mayer seat if anyone wants to sell or trade.
