Bill Mayer Saddles Ultima Leather Seat Review

Bill Mayer Saddles Ultima Leather Seat on a BMW R 1200 RT.

Despite all of the welcome functional improvements BMW incorporated into the latest “water boxer” R 1200 RT, as far as my butt is concerned, sitting on a bare I-beam is the height of luxury compared to the bike’s stock seat. Indeed, the park-bench flatness of its shape and spongy, unsupportive foam result in abject misery after only a few hours ...

Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat Review

Saddlemen Adventure Track Motorcycle Seat

It takes time and miles to truly evaluate a motorcycle seat. An aftermarket seat that feels harsh and unyielding at first can become a joy in the long run. Conversely, that factory seat that feels so plush on the showroom floor (a subtle sales ploy) can become a posterior torture device in no time. I have now spent more than ...

Sargent World Sport Performance Plus Motorcycle Seat Review

web-Sargent-2

One multi-day trip on my new bike confirmed that the stock seat wouldn’t do. The foam was too soft, the flat shape created pressure points and I kept sliding into the tank. I wanted to correct these shortcomings and retain heated seat integration—Sargent’s new World Sport Performance Plus seat ticked all the boxes. “Plus” is a special edition of Sargent’s ...

Butty Buddy Motorcycle Passenger Seat Review

The Butty Buddy is a portable seat, which overlays a motorcycle's small passenger seat or rear fender.

You’ve seen the video: A willowy blonde standing on a lonely stretch of highway with her thumb out. A chopperesque motorcycle slows to a stop and the rider nods for her to climb aboard. There’s no pillion so she perches on the rear fender, smiles and hangs on. They roar off as the music plays. If only it worked that ...

Air Hawk Comfort Seating System Review

web-DSCN0078

Seats are perhaps the most replaced factory parts in the riding world. I have replaced a few myself. There must be a better way! One of my bikes has a stock seat that is “pretty” comfortable for 90 percent of my riding miles. It’s not enough of a butt pain to replace, but it can be a distraction over successive ...

Roadhouse Motorcycle Seats Review

web-DSCN0413-copy

The custom leather rider and passenger seats on my BMW R 1150 RT were built by a popular saddle maker years ago. It was a fine combination that worked well for a long time, but then I needed a replacement. Roadhouse Seats in Las Vegas offers an intriguing way to upgrade seats for most cruisers and touring motorcycles. Using personal ...

Corbin Seat for Honda Silver Wing Review

Corbin motorcycle seat

It’s called mission creep. Scooters, originally designed to be small, friendly, urban transportation modules, are morphing into larger, more powerful, more capable traveling companions, equally adept at taking you across town or across the country. But some scooters’ do-it-all aspirations are held back by their seats, like the one on the Honda Silver Wing I recently added to my fleet. ...
