Sargent Seat now available for GS/A LC

The seat is finally available. Looks really nice. Has anyone tried one of their "Performance Plus" seats with the DTX seating area and grip zones. I like to be able to move around and don't want anything too grippy.

Heat or No Heat

I've had a Sargent seat on the last two bikes and will be ordering these. Now the question is whether to order with heat or not. I liked having the heated seats on my RT but that was easy to wire the Sargent seat into the bike controls. Not sure where to mount the Sargent seat controller on the GSA. Any suggestions?

The new Sargent heat contoller is adhesive backed and you can stick it pretty much anywhere. It comes with a relay and instruction and should be pretty straightforward. You can trigger the relay from the powerlet power but keep in mind the circuit will be active if you use the BMW charger. The charger will heat your seat if you leave it on. Probably best to use the tail light or parking light wire to trigger the relay.

I'm ok with the wiring and would tie the seats into my existing fuse block or perhaps spring for a PDM60. Looking for suggestions on the best place to mount the controller for each seat and in a way that they can be moved or removed when servicing the bike. I would mount both controllers near my left hand to control both seats while riding.
