Review: Saddlemen Solo Seat - Disappointed
If this is the wrong board, please tell me where it goes and I'll move it there.
I am 5'4" and 180 lbs. I've got to sit as low as I can. I also have two Corbin two up seats. I've wanted a solo for some time... and it is time. That said...
Of all the solo seats available right now, this one was the only one I felt I would be happy with. And I am... for the most part. That is, it feels better than any other seat I've ever sat on and I feel the lower back support. And I'm really liking the new look. Buuuuut...
The fitment could be better. See the pics. The 'over the gas tank' view shows a wide gap. I'm worried that during a rain, there's going to be a waterfall flowing under the seat and directly onto the electronics!
What can't be shown is the front of the seat directly behind the gas tank moves almost an inch when pressed. Yes, the seat lip (flange?) is in the gas tank catch under the tank. I know I'm not riding on that part, but still! And that upwards flair in the back? "Oh, no, please don't look at that!"
Good price for this seat... probably because it's made to 'sort of' fit several makes and model. (?)
About that potential waterfall... is that a legit concern???
Thanks for reading and your comments.
