I just bought a Sargent for my '17. I have one for my '07 DR650 and it worked wonders. The one on my 1000 works better than the stocker, but after a 4-day, ~1500-mile trip from Oklahoma City to Albuquerque and back, I'm really disappointed in the Sargent. Let me be clear; it isn't so much that my *** is sore as much as the sides of the seat just dig into my upper legs. The 4th day I had to skip a scheduled overnight stay so I ended up riding almost 600 miles that day alone. The pain was murderous. Short of sticking an eyesore like a Day Long on it, are there any other things I can do? I am a bit overweight, but working on that. I won't take this bike on a trip anywhere near that long again without addressing this issue.
