Re: Anyone done business with Russell Cycle Products for the K12LT
I have a custom seat on the LT from Rich's Saddles in the Seattle area, but I've had three Russell Day-Long saddles on other bikes (2 Moto Guzzis and a K 1200 RS). The Day-Long's were great and didn't go with them this time because they tend to raise the rider's position a bit and with a short inseam, I couldn't afford to lose the reach to the ground on the LT. Also, the Day-Long's stitch their seats and is designed (unless they've changed their design over the past five years) to breath, which is great, but means they can leak like a sieve in the rain. I wanted to give Rich's a chance and I'm satisfied. I'm not sure if it is as comfortable for the 800 plus mile days, but it's very close, and I don't have to carry around the darn rain cover. I have 150K plus miles on Day-Long saddles and only 25K on the Rich saddle. You can't go wrong with the Day-Long saddle. However take a look at Rich's website. Good luck.
