Got and new seat for longer distance riding

I got the Sargent seat front and rear on before my first ride this year. Very nice but hope it breaks in.

Managed to get mine from a forum member and best accessory I've invested in. I have done numerous 6-8hr continuous rides, with only a short 10mins roadside stop for a bottle of drink and snack, with none of the standard seat cramp issues and standing on the pegs trying to stretching and ease my legs after 3hrs.  :028:
Also owned my 1979 Bonnie T140E from new!

I have a Sargent on my Tiger much better for me than the stock seat.

It sound like Im in the minority here but never got on with my Sargent seat on my previous bike. I did have the low version so that could have made the difference in comfort.

Sheepskin cover on standard seat does it for me, done 500 mile days fine.
