    russell all day seat

    Hello,
    Thinking of buying an old Russell all day seat for my /6 for added comfort for passenger and myself on longer rides. The bench seat is kind of hard after 300 miles. Not sure how it will work for me as the bike has low bars, parabellum scout fairing. The Russell seat looks like it would be better in an upright seating position than forward with the low bars. Any thoughts or experience?
    Thanks,

    I had one for years. It was made for me, thus it fit perfectly. Make sure that yours fits you and you should be happy.

    Though I think they're made for more of a upright riding position, it should still be much better than stock. I really like mine.

    I'd never go back to anything else. 800 miles in a day is no problem.

    It was by far the best seat I have sat on. However, as has been said, it was made for me. I had to send photos of me sitting on my bike, my weight and inseam.

    Ask all you want to here, and get confusing and conflicting answers...get the seat and throw it on and answer yer question!!! It's how I do it, and there's just no shortcut...yeah, you end up buying a lotta seats thataway, but its the ONLY way to get a true answer!
