New Saddleman Seat

Ok, so I finally got the thing on Monday. Perfect timing too. I was sparing with some Kung Fu buddies on Sunday, tore my right pectoral muscule, and can't ride yet. Just got the ability to type back today. As I only have one arm right now, taking pictures proves rather difficult. I'll do the best I can as soon as I can. If someone posts that picture of the smilies holding the signs reading "this thread is worthless without pics", I'll happily deal out some serious e-slaps. Regardless, here are my first impressions:

Love it, the constuction is flawless. Its got chrome studs all around it, the leather strappy things hanging down on either side that I don't like are on via velcro and are removable. They've been removed. The fit is perfect with only a little extra room between the gas tank and the seat that's only barely noticable. The bolts that come with it fit perfectly into the holes in the tool box and snug the sissy pad right up to the sissy bar as flush as flush gets. The passenger seat is considerably wider than stock and the "hammock effect" you get from the stock seat that kills your tail bone has vanished. I sat on it, without riding it, and my first impression was that it is far more comfortable than the stock seat. It also makes the bike look alot spiffier. With the protac backrest on there, the new saddle, and the highway pegs, I've basically built a recliner on 2 wheels capable of a buck 15+. I have no plans after work today except to drag her out of the garage and take lots and lots of pics. I'll do my best to put them up tonight but I may have to wait until tomorrow. Either way they're coming very soon.

Feel free to fire away with questions or let me know if there is a specific thing you'd like a picture of...

I can`t wait to see the pics LP. It sounds like you have created the second "Couchasaki" here on the site. I hope it is as comfortable as it sounds.
