Re: Ordering a Russell color questions
when i purchased the Russell seat for my Silver R1200CLC, they were nice enough to send me several samples of different shades of grey and red. I decided on the red insert it looked great and set off the Grey (Silver) bike perfect.
Four days after installing said seat I trashed the bike. seat was repaired and transferred to 04 CL which had a side stand problem that BMW tried to correct and was unable to do this in a timely manner. BMW to make me happy traded my CL for the LT. When and if I replace this seat it will be a Russell with a grey insert.
The seat was sold to a very happy person and looks great on his black bike. Only the seat portion is leather and passenger portion left unchanged just recovered.
