So your first ride on the new seat will be Wed evening! At least you'll have it broken in by the time you get here.

what about a prostrate drop?

Hey Boejangles,

Nice work - I finally see your product. I don't have $300-400 for my ass right now but I just wondered if those "two points" that all the weight sits on when in MX pose could be accounted with a little hollow just like bicycle seats.

When I sit back (I am 6'4") street riding I sit where the passenger sits and it is very comfy. But when I take a passenger I sit MX and it is not so comfy... but if there was a spot for the family jewels it might be a good thing.

There is my whacky two cents!

Thumb Corbin Seat

I have a Corbin and I can now ride pretty much all day with no discomfort.

Someone on this list complained about the Corbin seat (IIRC) that the seams would rub your thighs sore on long rides. Have you found a solution for that ?

What would be the best color combo for a silver bike? black/black or would the black/grey work ? (I'd volunteer my bike as a test object, but I'm kinda far away...)

Glad you're happy with your seat. For my part, I recently checked a Corbin seat on a 950 and I was surprised by how heavy they are. Seemed also to wide for a real dual-sport use. YMMV.

I got it

Guys, I know the line is already long but I strongly suggest you get on it quickly! Although I need to do a more extensive test (the PCQ maybe ) I'm very pleased after several hours on my new Boejangles seat.

I came to pick it up on Monday night and BJ could barely come to open the door for me but he had done the seat as promised because he really wanted me to have it for the trip. Thank you so much for that

I checked the materials in his garage (leathers, foams, gel) and everything seems top notch. I choose a dark grey suede on the top for a good grip and a black (perforated) leather on the sides to move more easily while standing.

I also choose the standard size (close to stock) for several reasons:
- I'm not especially tall
- Getting a new seat just before a long trip can be risky and so it was safest to go with the stock shape
- The quality of the material (gel especially) seemed good enough to provide a much better comfort without increasing the height of the seat.

At the 1st contact with the seat, it feels quite firm (for a good support) but you don't feel the edges of the stock one. Moving a bit on the seat makes you notice that your bones don't have a hard contact patch anymore.

When I left BJ for 1 hour of freeway on my way back I quickly realized that I will love this seat for my trip. I'll keep you updated.

Glad your happy J-L..
Initially I just wanted to help some of the guys out and save their asses from the stock seat which isn't to bad but needs plenty of improvements. My current disability allows me the time to work on these projects and keeps me sane. Currently I have a list of 27 people who wants a seat and I'm excited about the project but unfortunately my second leg surgery just slowed me down a bit more, they just pulled these suckers out on Friday and their about as wide as my fist.

I'm starting to pick up speed again and I have a long weekend to get caught up so please continue to be patient and I'll get all you guys taken care of.
Here's a couple more shots of J-L's seat and hopefully I'll have a website up soon so you can pick and choose your material options.


I'll start going down the list today and having you send in the seats, talk to ya'll soon..

Could you do a seat for a non-Adventure LC4? I have the original seat as a core as I'm using a KTM "Comfort" seat currently. The comfort seat is a small improvement, but I think that one of yours would be better yet. Let me know if you can and a rough idea on price. Thanks!

Sure, I can build you one for the LC4. Are you happy with the ergonomics of the seat? Don't think you would need suede unless you were after looks as well. I can build you one out of leather or Vinyl as well just let me know what your needs are. PM me and we can sort through the specifics..

The Griptex is similiar to the BMW stuff and I'm in the process of getting it in different colors. The material is nice and sticks well but nothing like rubber, a good thing I get it through my upholstery contacts.

Hey, James: I'd be happy to build and host a web site for you to help out... I've got my own web/mail server sitting kinda idle in Novato and we could get something rolling pretty easily.

Shoot me an email or gimme a ring on my cell - if you miss me it's because I'm on my way home (slight project delay and some cool but threatening lightning over here).

Some have asked about the GS seats and I would have no problems building those for you as well.
