Saddlemen Adventure Track Seat Triumph Tiger 800 / 800XC 2011-2014
not at all what I expected
Although it looks nice, it is not anymore comfortable than the stock seat. Gets and stays very wet after rain for a long time.

Great Gel padding
I ride a 2010 BMW GS Adventure. After suffering with the stock seat and reading about alternatives, I thought I would try the Saddlemen Adventure Track seat. Revzilla got it to me in perfect order. Amazing order to delivery time! The seat is simple to replace the original with....turn of a key. My first few uses were easy quick commutes to and from work (10 minutes). It was the next week before I got to ride for some mileage. I didn't even think about my new seat until I stopped for fuel an hour and half later that I realized I was riding on my new gel seat from Saddlemen. No numb butt! No stiff painful few steps as I climbed off my ride! Wow! What a difference! Easily the best farkle I have added to my ride. Great job Revzilla! Super job Saddlemen! Fit and finish is superb. Finally an all day seat for an all day machine.

Not the best answer if you are short
So I have waited a bit to review this saddle to get a more complete impression. I have ridden it now for about 2 weeks, and about 500 miles. I ride a 2011 R1200GS and have a 29 inch inseam. I have always had to 1 foot the bike at stops and can tippy toe 2 feet, but even with the low version of this seat it has increased the overall reach over the standard seat. This is because it is simply a wider seat which limits the reach. Also being wider, I do not care for it nearly as much when standing. It feels too wide at the front. It does somewhat cure the issues I have with hip roll, or poor posture on the stock seat that put pressure on my lower back. That is 50-70% better. It does help most, as you might expect, with decreased pressure on the perineum which makes longer ride much better. Many people say it is a hard seat, and sure the foam is more rigid than the stock seat, but I kind of like that. I can tell that even after only 500 miles it is starting to conform to me. It will get even better with time I expect. If I were going on a long weekend ride that was mostly off-road and would require me to stand all day, I would definitely put my stock seat back on for that ride. Lastly, it was very finicky to fit. The fuse block at the back under the seat had to be moved from its bracket and tucked up under the rear rack plastic just to get the seat on and it still took way too many attempts to get it on correctly. I would hate to have to remove and re-install it often. So those are my thoughts. I think it is be a better choice than stock for touring and my daily commuting, but not my choice for off-road standing use.

Looks great, easy to install.
Great product, very easy to install. Took 5 minutes. High quality construction, much much better than original seat. A bit stiff at first but breaks in nicely.

What a change in comfort
Now I can ride my f800 gs without being tortured. This seat solves the problem with crushing the family jewels! Is is somewhat difficult to fit on the bike the first time, but improves with time.

This seat is a vast improvement over the stock seat. Much better in the long distance role and is stellar in the rough stuff. One good coat of scotch guard and the wet stuff is no problem. I say it is a good value, wish I had got it the day I bought the bike.

II bought this seat to have the option to switch out from my Russell for the dirt, still breaking it in (1500mi.) but I really like it! Great on the twisty's too ,you can really hang off. Good buy!
