Does anyone know anything about the 2005 gold LT at the dealer in Daytona?

Is there anyone here that might know about a 2005 LT for sale used at the dealer in Daytona? It is gold in color, clean, has several additional farkles (CB, Sat Radio, GPS) and has a custom seat that must have been created for a tall rider, it is around 1-1/2 inches taller than that stock seat and has a fabric cover this bike has a little over 41000 miles on it. I asked at the dealer if anyone knew where the seat came from and they did not know but for a big guy it seemed comfortable I would like to have one like it for mine. The bike is clean and appears to have been taken care of very well, I made them an offer for it but they wanted too much difference so I will ride on but would like to have a seat like it.
If anyone knows who may have made it or who the bike might have belonged to please let me know

It seems to me that if "you're really interested" in a bike
the dealer should give you the former owners name and number,

or.... if you had a picture of the seat,
one of us might be able to identify it

It may be a Kontour , Ron's are made with that look. Just my guess tho without seeing it that is

I do believe Steve is right it certainly looks like the picture shown on the Kontour website. It was a different color (matched the Gray on the 05) but was otherwise the same.
Thanks you guy's

What were they asking? I've got an '05 I'm thinking of trading on a GT. 'Bout the same mileage.

They were asking $15,500 for the bike and I did offer to trade in and buy the bike it is clean and well equipped I just would not pay the amount they wanted as trade difference.
They have a good sale going on for the GT if you are seriously interested they had several in stock and had the price down to under 18K for a new one.

I was at Daytona BMW today and looked at that 05'. Yes, it is Ron's Kontour on the 05' seat pan. I had Ron recover an 03' seat pan for my 05' and have been very happy for well over 100K, still looks like new.
