Saddle-swap in Seattle?

Hey all in Seattle area - I have a custom leather seat on my V (from Rich's) that the previous owner had made for a lot of money. It aaaaaalmost fits me perfectly, but I think I'm just a tad to short for it.
I never tried the stock seat on a V so I'm curious if that would fit me better. Maybe someone in the Seattle area would wanna swap if the fit is better? Or at least meet up for a test?

Private message me or email me lindhe (at) me.com.

Here's what it looks like:



Thanks!

Martin,
There's a reason that guy had the seat modified. The stock one sucks and will continually push you into the tank. Rich's makes great (expensive) seats. I would recommend selling the Rich's seat on the Forum) and getting a Corbin since they supply the seat pan and all. If you want to try a stock seat, you can PM me. We can get together and you can try mine. It's sitting on the shelf. I'm keeping it until I decide whether or not to have it modified to suit me and sell the Corbin. The Corbin is a huge improvement over the stock one but I would like a little more lateral thigh support. I have also checked on Craigs List for a section for motorcycle parts and there is only a "Motorcycles" section. No parts, so I think it makes things harder to be seen so they can be sold. That's why I would say that if you're selling something for a Versys, this forum would be the best even though someone usually ends up paying shipping. And by the way, how do you like 52 degrees on the first day of July?

Martin,

I'll be around this weekend if you would like to try out a stocker. I would like to try out that Rich's, been thinking about getting one.

OK everyone! I have now tried out a stock seat - and it fits me better than the Rich's seat (Thanks for meeting up with me Sike!! - that was a blast!).

So anyone in Seattle area that want to buy (or trade) with my Rich's seat is welcome to swing by my house in Kirkland (or meet up somewhere) this weekend and try and see if it fits you.

It's clearly made for a tall person - 6' something is Sike's guess.

Just contact me with private message. Thanks!
