    Russel All Day seat

    Who has one? Does it sit higher than a stock seat? The reason I am asking is the Lamm seat I have isnít going to cut it on long rides. At around the 400 mile point my ass cheeks are complaining. I picked up a used Saddlemaster Explorer and the seating height is lower but I havenít put a lot of miles on it yet. The Lamm is for sale if anyone is interested

    Re: Russel All Day seat

    I have one on my Hayabusa . 13 plus hours in saddle , and ZERO issue . Get leather not vinyl its a $100 upgrade , but well worth it as it prevents Monkey butt . Vinyl does not breathe were leather does . Get ready to wait in line as you picked the worst time to consider ordering one . Their current start date last I heard was August 2018 , and its about two weeks from your build date before its done/ready . Then Shipping time about 5 days .
    I ordered mine in Late March 2017 , sent my photos , and then a stock saddle/pan to them . My Build date was mid July 2017 , and my seat arrived 1st week of August .

    Re: Russel All Day seat

    you will be fine then . The support wings make getting feet down a little more of a challenge if your short like myself .

    Yeah. The ground reach isnít a concern as I can easily flat foot. I just donít want to be up in the wind. I have a Cee Bailey ultra tour so I can block the wind but it kills fuel mileage with that billboard up!! Itís like 4mpg difference with it up versus just a little up. With it down I can see neck soreness on a long ride. Itís all good I will figure out something for a compromise

    I had no idea Cee Bailey made motorcycle windshields.

    They made my airplane windshield that I installed 25 years ago.

    They make some of the best! Really no little shields though. Mostly big bikes C14, fjr1300, wing, 1250 bandit, bmw's

    I was lucky as my Russell was on my ST when I got it and it fits like a dream, or I am just more careful than Jethro where
    I place my nads

    I do know that the seat on Bryan's bike fits and looks fantastic on there, that is still the best looking Hayabusa I have ever seen

    Re: Russel All Day seat

    Update to this thread. I got my RDL in September and took a day ride down to Tampa and back for a quick lunch with a close friend. A touch under 700 miles in the saddle and that seat is worth every penny!! No squirming, no adjusting just pure comfort!! They made me believers!!

    The shine is the leather conditioner I put on earlier today. This is their dual offering, the solo is the same in the front and more smooth/rounded in the rear area

    Bryan-
    Your arse gets sore on 400 miles? Crap, I can't make it a full tank of gas before I'm ready to off-load. You shoulda seen me & Dennis on our return ride from Daytona a month back. Both of us had to stop about every 45m to get some flow back. That was downright torture.

    I just got my seat back from Spencer's Great Day To Ride. Yeah, not the price package you paid for & there's only so much that can be done w/an N1K's seat but I'm looking forward to breaking it in.

    I just seen this Lee. With the Seth Lamm seat yeah about 400 miles was it then a lot of standing and flexing. The RDL cured that. I canít explain in words how comfortable it made the ride. The ZRX doesnít get many miles anymore even around town but the plus side to that is less miles racked up and it stays clean!

    Re: Russel All Day seat

    As luck would have it, someone on the N1K site offered up a Laam seat about a week after I got my seat back from Spencer's GDTR. I've heard lots of good about the Laam seats, even better about Russell Day Long Seat.

    The Spencer mod worked well, altho because of the seat configuration, it'll never be a high mileage seat. Considering the N1K is billed as a sport-tourer, I almost have to wonder what Kawi was thinking when they designed the seat. Granted, I'm not riding as much as I use to in my younger days so my rear isn't as accustomed to longer distances as it once was, and as I approach that 60 mark, I really prefer comfort over sport at this point.

    To add to that, my 15 yr. old daughter and I recently discussed her becoming a passenger. She's really excited about that possibility but it also means the N1K is going to have to go- a passenger bike it is not. Of course, I just finished modding the damn thing, really enjoy this bike and was convinced it was, more than likely, my last motorcycle.

    So w/this new directive, I've been shopping late model Versys 1000's, FJR1300's and- hold your breath- a couple of Harley models. Not sure what direction I'm going to go yet; all I know is it's gotta be powerful enough for two, relatively comfortable and practical for two and have a backrest.
