Still have NOT been on the bike long enough to form an honest opinion and will try to get a 500 KM trip in someday soon. This is what Janice did to my Renazco seat from my BMW 650GS. Trimmed the width by the nose and added a gel pad…Once I get some seat time I will let Janice as well as everyone else know what I think of the “new” and improved level of comfort.
Janice from Slim Signature Seats delivered my seat via her bicycle today via the pouring rain. More when I have the build pictures and my review of the new improved seat with gel insert.
More to come…….
Janice from Slim Signature Seats in Vancouver, BC is trying to create a customized seat for my BMW F800GS. I am excited to see what she can do to make this new 2013 BMW a more comfy street ride. So far we are impressed with the ESA option which allows the rider to choose between a firmer or softer suspension. This has proven to be a great addition to this class of bike. I am liking the ESA so much that I can honestly say in comfortable mode the BMW compares to the Triumph Tiger 800. Now, let’s hope the seat completes the over all feel. Stay tuned!
While I just got my bike last Saturday, I have spent my week off from work running around trying to get the bike set up for anything. Cheryl’s bike has crash bars, risers, and a head light protector waiting for her to have the time to install them. Oh, and I need my risers installed too…HINT!
I was fortunate to be able to ride down to AltRider in Seattle and have them graciously install my bars and light guard. Today, I went to see Janice aka Slim who will be working on my Renazco seat off my 650. Janice will try to customize my seat with foam trimming and adding a gel pad. WE are hoping to drop my seat height by 1/2 inch from the OEM low seat. Cross you fingers this works.
