How 'bout if I just show part of my bike? I installed the Saddlemen track-style adventure seat. Very easy bolt-on. Installs the same way as the OEM. No chance to evaluate it yet because of persistent winter-like weather :mad: It seams very well made, and is firmer than the OEM saddle. I'll share some more impressions when mother nature allows the chance to ride for any substantial distance.

I would like to see how that seat looks on the S10 and look forward to your review.

I tried to post a pic in the OP, but I guess ADV Rider doesn't like pics hosted by Tapatalk, cuz the link kept vanishing *poof* Here's a half-assed photo from my Galaxy S3a taken inside a garage.

Looks good. What are your initial thoughts of the seat? How is the height and width compared to the stock one?
Sorry, not trying to jack the thread. I'm just curious as I am looking to get a replacement seat and I have not heard much about the Saddlemen seats.

Im going to post a much more spacific post when its dialed in. I think we have it almost there.

The natural thing to say is how awesome it feels, Etc, Etc.. But the nuts and bolts of it is nothing beats suspension set up for a riders weight and riding style. Much more refined, 100% better off road, the compression and rebound actually do something on the Ohlins. On road and the light off road Ive done so far is smoother and in more control. I don't get the soft mush I was getting before. And in the corners you can push harder and there is no wondering or undulation, feels much more planted at many variable speeds. I can hammer on it, and it gets smoother at speed on the little of road Ive done (so far). And on the same hand its very much in control and planted on the high-way / roads.. Another thing I noticed right off the bat was when you kick it off the center stand it doesn't burn up have the travel under its own weight. The sag is very close to proper now and makes a big difference.

Thank you for a real world report. Now, gulp, approximate cost? Or is it one of those "If you have to ask" things?

I am awaiting delivery of a simple YACUGAR unit at £660 ($1000) in the UK. A simple OHLINS was £1000 ($1500).

I needed a stronger shock to take all the weight that I carry and they are currently putting it together to my specs. I did not need a high end one as my 2 up loaded weight will be constant for the next year and once set, the preload will be constant.

Tabasco's is a high end unit and will probably be over $2000.

YACUGAR are a Dutch company who formed from the technicians that were WP (White Power Suspension) before KTM bought WP and moved the operation to Austria.

see: http://www.yacugar.com/

There is a US distributor,

Hmm...almost like I have been preaching all along!

Enjoy that bling! Suspension is THE BEST mod you can do if you ride your bike spiritedly in ANY conditions.
