Is there a saddlemen seat for the v? I emailed them a few months ago and they said they did not have a seat for the versys. If they do have one I am excited.

I just bought one off eBay. Maybe discontinued, Or prototype ? I checked their website and didn't see any for the V. Might give them a call tomorrow and inquire.

It looks strange, but for years I've been telling my gf that they should make seats with a place in the middle to avoid pressure on some areas...I think their model works, they should just recover it so it wouldnt be visible, yet would still have the same effect.
