Like many of you I have never been happy with the OEM seat on my ST1300. I researched, considered, researched, thought about money, and then did nothing. After a couple long trips and more misery, I bought a used Sargent. I got my $$$'s worth out of the Sargent, I did my first (and only) SS1K on it and in general was fairly happy. But I knew it could be better. Everyone raves about the RDL. I know it has to be a great seat. I am sure it is worth the $$$. I am sure it is worth waiting on the long lead time. I don't like the way it looks. Sorry, there it is. So I saw a picture of a Laam Custom Seat on an FJR. I decided I had to have one. I sent an e-mail. Here are some of the results.
