Black in color.

Thank you

The problem with the Xmoto is the width of the seat in addition to it's firmness. Your buttbones are actually hanging off the edge of the seat (don't ask me how I know this) You can probably tell by my previous posts that I'm not pro gel. For the Xmoto, the gel will be too wide and about as hard as your stock seat. A better choice may be a buttpad with a piece of foam under it or a sling to carry water bottles on each side of your butt. Then you put a buttpad on top. That way you have a way to carry water and enough width. The sling is called "sweet cheeks", made by Ray Pope at www.cycle-analyst.com. I may have a couple left. If you are interested, tell me how wide the seat is and I'll see if I have one to fit. Thanks, Barb

Hi!
Anyone knows if the "DUALSPORT FULL SADDLE-15"x29"" from alaskaleather fits well in the Transalp 650 seat, that's quite larger then the transalp 600 sit?

I think it'll be fine, but remember, it's not a custom fit. Double check the measurements on our website and compare with your seat. You can pick any size that fits under your butt. Thanks, Barb

Ordered the dual sport rally special in black. Very nice, excellent fit, can't wait to try it out on a long ride. If the rally special is this nice, the next grade up must be something. thanks

Which size for GSA

Barb, which size is the best fit for an 08 GS Adventure with Seargent saddle? Med or Large? And is the pillion type II the best one for the rear?

Thanks, Richard

I'd use the Medium for the front, pillion type 2 for the rear. Thanks, Barb

Order placed

Lots of good reviews, so I just placed my order for a medium. Thought I may need a little extra padding for a PA to Prudhoe Bay trip in June.

So I can't get the search function to search for DRZ or DRZ 400 or DR so I hope this has not been asked too much but what do you suggest for a drz sm? I live in Michigan and occasionally run into rain. I also plan on eventually getting an aftermarket seat. I ride 99% street.

Thanks in advance.

I don't think the seach function works at all yet, we are still working on the site. All the DR series take the same size (dualsport) I need to make that clearer on the website. A small works great for rain, less to get wet. Make sure to put the bike type if you order so I put the clips in the right place. Thanks, Barb
