    Looking for a custom seat builder in the NE

    Bought a 2018 GTL in September and after 6,000 miles on the stock and Corbin seats with lambswool and /or Airhawk I'm still miserable. Need something to keep me back in the bucket and off my nuts and at 5'7" an RDL ain't in the cards. Hoping for some info on really good custom seat builders I can ride to and get it right. I'm in SE CT so I'll take anything in the NE 25% of the country or south to Carolinas. Don't need the appearance customization guys-it can be covered in purple velour for all I care as long as it's 5-600 mile per day comfortable. Any direct experiences would be much appreciated thanks

    It is going to be hard for you I am afraid. I ride a B/GA, which does sit lower; I know you just bought the GTL (and it is the same bike), but if you don't get your GTL set up the way you'd like, give the B a try.

    Yeah loud and clear. My riding buddy is on a B and i did indeed ride it before I bought the GTL. I had to be cool-actually wanted greater suspension travel and removable cases. I'm just this side of OK height-wise. Just need to get off my balls

    Iím going Thursday to see a guy in MD that does custom saddle work . He needs you and the bike there so he can see you sitting on the bike and adjust from there . He removes , adds different rubber padding of different densities , shapes it and then sends you on a 100 mile ride to see how it feels and adjusts again. All the VA mounted police riding RTs use him and the Indian and Harley folks too.

    I had the same problem exactly. My solutionbutt pad.jpg

    Ten bucks worth of material and a couple of hours fiddling with the design and stitching and it works like a charm. It may not look like it but it's designed to keep you up and back off the center hump of the seat (and off your junk) but lets you go down and forward when you want to put your feet down.

    Best advice you'll ever take from anyone wrt a K1600 seat is to bite the bullet, pay the price, and get a Russell Day Long.
