These guys have since gone out of business for a variety of reasons.

I'll get pics of the bike up tomorrow, but it basically looks just like a stock BMW G650 X Country seat. A sharp eye might notice it is a little plumper. Just got back from taking the G/F out for a lunch ride. I did about 80 miles total, not very long, but it is unbelievably comfy! Lil'B.P.O. also says the pillion area is WAY better. The wedge of denser foam at the rear seems to help keep her from sliding back as well.

Jim's additional notes

Thanks Matt for the wonderful evaluation of our services. BTW Matt's the first customer out of hundreds, who's been invited into the shop, with a camera, to record a complete upgrade. We're proud of our service and really try to listen to our customers during the process. The real testimony of our service is when a rider returns to have his second and sometimes third bike's seat upgraded. We've a number of Iron Butt rally riders who ride on our upgrades, and are happy with the decision. We invite Adv Riders to contact us and let us listen to your situation and recommend solutions. Matt we'll get you a test set of our vibration dampening grips in the next week or so. Hoping to have a marketable product in time for Americade.

Everyone ride safe out there,

If you get them to me before the Hanging Rock 200 I'll use them all weekend. Also, anybody who is planning on riding the AMA Hanging Rock 200, just look for my bike and you are welcome to have a sit.

Your site doesn't have it listed. Will you be going to "Thunder in the Valley", Johnstown, PA.? Tom

rallys & shows

We won't be at Thunder this year as it conflicts with a local charity run that we're committed to the same weekend. We'll try and get an updated list on the website next week. We're still considering the BMWMOA rally in TN this July.

Americade

What can we say? Americade was fabulous this year. Made great contacts with the leadership of Americade as well as Lee Parks, famous for his advanced riding schools. Check him out at http://www.leeparksdesign.com/default.asp Got to confirm our suspicions about our Comfort Seat Upgrades as they related to seating pressure (hot spots). Pressure mapped our Upgraded seats as well as our seat cushions. Fantastic numbers were generated. We saw a reduction in tissue damaging pressure in a stock seat of 15+%, reduced to less than 3% in the same seat after being upgraded! Check out our website for pictures and details at http://cyclesolutionsllc.com/269303.ihtml

Bike Night

We won't be at this weeks Bike Night (July 29, 30) because we're headed for Oshkosh to take in a couple of days at AirVenture (the largest airshow in the country). We will be at next weeks Bike Nights, in the valley on Wednesday and out at Sheffield on Thursday. We'll be donating a Comfort Seat Cushion at each event to be given away "raffle" style, so stop by and get a ticket.

I barely noticed the plumpness.

Jim, I'm kinda wishing I had put the heater in the seat....







So..., how hard would it be to open the seat back up and put it in?

Heater

Won't be that big a deal, need to check and make sure the bike has sufficient power in the alternator to drive the heater. Shouldn't be a problem though.
