Does your contact sell in small enough quantities to cover only a BMW R1150GS Adventure seat? Could you sell me some or give me your contact info? I really like the stuff on the Adventure seat and would like to get some more.

Wholesale only and won't sell direct. I'm trying to stay away from selling just material but I can sell you enough to do your seat. If your trying to tackle the job yourself, it's not just a matter of a stable gun and streching the material. Your going to have to sew two halves together to get a nice finish.
PM me what you think your going to need for your project and we'll sort it out.

My new seat arrived today and it sweet! First, I would like to thank Mr. boejangles (James) for his hard work and fine craftsmanship. When we spoke on the phone he explained how all of his materials serve a specific function. I explained to him that I had two issues with the stock saddle: 1- The steep, forward slope of the seat. 2- The unforgiving stiffness of the stock foam.

Now, the seat has a much more level grade to it. I can still sit foward for technical terrain or sit back for long hauls. The new gel/foam under the seat cover makes a huge difference. It's kind of a firm softness, if that makes sense? Still a firm seat but a comfortable firm.

The suede top cover is beautiful. The materials are top notch. So far I'm one happy customer! Thanks again Boejangles

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm not really what you'd call cultured and have no clue what this reference is to. Who's that?

I just wanted to share this photo of a seat I built for Scuderia West.
The bike is a one off paint scheme but still shares some of the colors of the GO!!!! bike. The blue suede is about as close as I'm going to get in matching it to KTM's blue color unless I use a metallic blue leather to compliment the metalic paint.
The bike is their demo bike so I thought for those who live in the Bay Area they can stop by and at least sample the seat before any commitments.
Here's some before and after photo's..

Man james that Seat is freaking Amazing....
congratulations...
for sure change the whole "Visual" of the bike,,now Donny need to ask the painter to complete the blue on the side panels so you don't see that silver line,,bottersome at least for me

you mension metalic Color leather,,,i remenber some race suit made of that type of leather(Helimot I believe),in fact the color was really similar to the purple/blue of the GO!!!!!!!!!!! bike

can you imagine a bright Orange Suede on the top with some nice side panels made of a Dark but "electric" purple color,,,that will be so awesome.....

Now I'm all confusee what colors i want on my fancy new seat,,,You sucker are giving me a headhacke,,in the best possible way of course

Very nice. I'll be riding 200 miles tomorrow and thinking of your work for probably oh, 199 of them. For as nice a bike as KTM produces it amazes me that they could produce a seat that feels marginally better than a frame rail.

James... I am soooo looking forward to the day I can order one of your seats. But, I have to get my business up and running first.
Please stop posting all the pretty pictures, because I can't help coming back to this thread... no will power what so ever.

Exactamundo! Wanna know a secret? I'm taking a pillow w/ me. No seat... just a pillow. Can't be worse. No, I'm not kidding. Ride report to follow!

Can we classify this as a mod? Sort of a pennytech thing? I'm feeling pretty inovative here.
