    Sargent vs Russel

    Anyone used both of these on long distance riding?

    I have not. But I do have new dual RDL heated saddles on my 07RT that we love. I did considerable research on this topic before deciding and saw many posts for those who have tried all the various flavors of Sargent, Corbin, etc. and the consensus was RDL was usually the favorite. I read somewhere that 80% of IronButt riders have RDL's as well.

    I have a Russel Day Long on my K16GTL. I have a Sargent on my R12GSA. I've ridden the GSA in the Iron Butt Rally ('13) and finished while seated on the Sargent. I'm selling the K16GTL. I'm buying a new Russel Day Long for the GSA.

    There is a lot information in the previous.

    The seats off of my 2010 RT are at Russell right now. Can't wait to get them back.

    Both

    I have a Russell day long for the Fall and Winter, but I find them hot in the Summer. That is when the Sargent comes out with the beads on it. Both are great seats and I have no trouble covering long distances in a single day...read, over 1,000 miles.

    You will never go wrong with a Russel Daylong! Have tried Corbin, Rick Mayer, and Sargent...for Julie and me Rick's seat beats Corbin and Sargent, but, the Russell is the best over all (just our opinion). Guess it depends on how much you wish to spend for comfort and the shape of your butt. I've friends that swear by the Corbin and Sargent seats because they fit their butt shape. See what works for you and let us know.

    I would be concerned about how much higher would the seating position be with any aftermarket seat.
