Red face All Day Long

Price reduced from 600 to 400 Washingtons. Shoot me a message if you're interested.


When I was a young man I had a lot of dreams for my girl. I wanted her to the best and I showered her with shiny bobbles. Well, here I am again, trotting out my $1000 dollar Day Long Seat. It has never been on the bike.

I would love to get 600 for it. No sense in telling me that's too expensive. I may just take it apart for anything less to see the 'Day Long magic'. I hear these seats are the best.

Anyway, most of you have seen these pictures before but even so they serve as a reminder to all of us...Love is blind and that causes us to spend those pennies.

I would love to try that seat, but I won't even insult you with a lower offer since I can't afford it now anyway.

Great question. The rear fender would have to be moded and I'm guessing a bracket made for under the seat. It is six inches longer I believe than the standard seat. It has an all leather upper and I think the sides are vinyl. It's been so long I forget.

Upon closer inspection of the pictures it seems the Day Long seat does not have have a backrest for the pillon passenger!! I never knew that before.

Mike could you measure the length of the Day Long seat and post it so I can compare with the Kouchasaki seat. thanks

Sure, The length is 31". The springs are heavy duty as the seat was built to hold a person who's 225lbs. I'm really not sure what heavy duty springs means. All I know is I couldn't have spent another penny on the seat. I have a cover as well. I don't have a standard Kawa seat.
