Evolution of a Custom Seat Part II


Still have NOT been on the bike long enough to form an honest opinion and will try to get a 500 KM trip in someday soon.  This is what Janice did to my Renazco seat from my BMW 650GS.  Trimmed the width by the nose and added a gel pad…Once I get some seat time I will let Janice as well as everyone else know what I think of the “new” and improved level of comfort.

Janice from Slim Signature Seats delivered my seat via her bicycle today via the pouring rain. More when I have the build pictures and my review of the new improved seat with gel insert.

More to come…….

Evolution of a Custom Seat to be con’t…..


Janice from Slim Signature Seats in Vancouver, BC is trying to create a customized seat for my BMW F800GS.  I am excited to see what she can do to make this new 2013 BMW a more comfy street ride.  So far we are impressed with the ESA option which allows the rider to choose between a firmer or softer suspension.  This has proven to be a great addition to this class of bike.  I am liking the ESA so much that I can honestly say in comfortable mode the BMW compares to the Triumph Tiger 800.  Now, let’s hope the seat completes the over all feel.  Stay tuned!

Pictures of the Day


While I just got my bike last Saturday, I have spent my week off from work running around trying to get the bike set up for anything.  Cheryl’s bike has crash bars, risers, and a head light protector waiting for her to have the time to install them. 😉 Oh, and I need my risers installed too…HINT! 😉

I was fortunate to be able to ride down to AltRider in Seattle and have them graciously install my bars and light guard.  Today, I went to see Janice aka Slim who will be working on my Renazco seat off my 650.  Janice will try to customize my seat with foam trimming and adding a gel pad.  WE are hoping to drop my seat height by 1/2 inch from the OEM low seat.  Cross you fingers this works.
