RDL seat with decapitation

Got my RDL seat that I ordered through the GL1800 group buy (20% discount). All leather (all of my custom seats have been leather, just like the look and feel), both portions of the seat done, special order removable backrest (didn't like the look of the standard back rest), removable pouch that attaches to the backrest (wife wanted that), retained seat heat, passenger backrest also covered. Neither my wife nor I liked the windblocker so I asked if they could upholster the backrest and cover the attachment hump. IMO they did a nice job.

No pics on the bike yet as the bike is in its winter place, when I visit I will put the seat on and take some pics.

Sorry about the thumb, too lazy to go back out and take additional pics.

Re: RDL seat with decapitation

The seat looks great and I like what you did the the Top Case back rest. I'd love to try out the seat. Looks like you won't be sliding forward.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
