Good to know. How would you say it feels based on your inseam length? I'm a 32" inseam, or 33" with riding boots and the stock seat is cramped, so definitely 1" is better but maybe 2" would be best. Not sure.

Not into their seats - the turn around time sucks.

I like the seat. However I am 5'7" with about a 29 inch inseam on a good day. This seat is way more comfy than the stock seat or the factory low seat I had before. It's still a dirtbike seat though. This isn't a Russell Daylong, or Corbin butt bucket. It is also the one with the breathable fabric. I can't say I noticed a difference in "seat temp" though.

Overall height doesn't bother me. Being on my toes is normal for me.

I also bought this seat from a friend for a great price!

With all of that said, if I had to pay full pop, I would have gone with the Renazco in a heartbeat. Somethings are worth waiting for.

After weeks in the 20s and 30s, we shot up to 58°F today. So I had to go for a ride. Mt. Shasta is about an hour from my house, and usually has a whole lot more snow on it by now.

This will be another dismal rear for snow till right at the end when you're getting back into biking mode and will have to ski more than ride as the snow keeps coming and deep. Makes for more fun riding I guess.

For 2012 i'll do only the real necessaries.

* topcase where I can put mu helmet in and where I can store my chains and locks
* Hyperpro springs (progressive iso linear) and to lower the bike a bit (I'm just small), lowering is both in the front and the back part
* windscreen to have better comfort on the highway
* crash bars, to be able to crash :P

In total, I do want SO MUCH more, but if I do it all this year, I get boarded by the time it's 2020 you know ;)
