    Have had mine three years, all the good things everyone says is true...

    Only negative for me was the dished shape of the seat capturing water.
    Compared to the OEM or a Corbin I had, with the RDL you end up sitting
    in a puddle in heavy downpours. The other seats were "self draining".
    Not so the RDL. I had soggy butt the first time I got into some good rain.

    But a significant upgrade to the rain pants (Gore wasn't cutting it) and all is dry again.

At only 5'10" when I stop it is harder to reach the ground thats just to bad because they can not have it back.
    Your legs will get longer after it's broken in.

    +1 on the RDL. Best money I've ever spent. Did 300 today after work and 500-600 tomorrow

    Had one on a K 1100 LT. Very comfortable.

    On my R 1100 RT I had a Sargent and a Corbin, neither which was that great for my shape butt.

    Then I put on a Kontour right before the Redmond Rally. Did the Redmond 1000 IBA ride on it. Never thought about the seat at all.

    Ordering one for the R 1100 R I bought on Monday.
    Ride Well
