I tried a Sargent seat for my V, and by the third ride I knew I couldn't live with it. I really wanted to like it-it looks great, but I was just too cramped-it forced me to sit forward, closer to the tank, with no support for my inner thighs. Sargent enlarged the passenger section and reduced the rider's part. The standard padding is firmer than oem, which seemed at first to transmit a harsher, bumpier ride as though I had increased the suspension damping significantly-but it's not nearly as hard as a Corbin. The carbon fiber look cover is close to the oem cover in terms of not being slippery, and since the seat doesn't slope forward, a person is not sliding into the tank under braking.
The deal breaker for me was the feeling that I was sitting on the edge of a chair with just my butt on the seat. If you're sitting down while reading this post, slide forward until just your butt is on the chair-but be carefull that the chair doesn't fall forward. I'd come back from a ride with my knees sore from bracing myself against that falling forward feeling.
I have a Seat Concepts seat kit waiting for me to install when I get home from Salt Lake City in about a week or so. And no, I didn't take the V-I took my Concours C10.
