Russell Day Long VS Kontour Magnum
I have a 1988 R100GS with a Corbin Solo seat and am looking to upgrade.
I am a big guy. 6' 5" 280bls. I have tried Airhawk, beads, sheepskin, gel and every combination of all of these and can not make my seat comfortable. I do like the Beadrider for the airflow and that is why the Kontour is on the short list. Can anybody speak to the airflow on the Kontour vs a bead seat???
The wide stance of both of these seats really seem to be what I need... But think that air would be important too. Russell doesn't sound like they like to push the velour they sell but hasn't bothered to find a better cloth material.
Russell says that they can work with my Corbin seat pan where as Kontour will not. In that case. Does anybody have an OEM Solo Seat for my GS? Cheap?? Can't see spending another $300 + on an original seat that I am going to spend... $600 - $700.
Yes. I know that I need to loose weight. But I will never be a little guy or anywhere near the sub 200lbs that bikes and their seats are made for.
Help!! I really can't afford this so I want to make sure I do it right.

Russell day long on a RT.... my 2 cents worth
Get the Russell.....
I have had several Corbins,a Sargent and now a Russell. The Russell beats them all for comfort. And with a bead rider on it,the airflow is good,even on hot days.
I know your Talking seat for GS's here( I have a 98 RT),just thought I'd put my input on the table.
Corbins seem to be getting worse in comfort and quality. There customer service sucks too. I had a 2004 Triumph Sprint ST with a Corbin that needed a recovering. They could have cared less when I called about a recovering.....
Russell group buy on Vulcan bagger forum about to end.
There are about 10 slots open for a group buy at RDL. The opportunity ends at midnight. RDL opened up 125 slots and right now only 10 left. Just go to the RDL website and complete your form and get it to them. Be sure to put on the form 2013 Group buy or you won't get the 20% discount. I am all signed up for my RT.
