    Possible speaker idea for 2005 R1200rt

    Hey all, I want some opinions on adding speakers to an R1200rt. My bike doesn't have speakers and the stock ones for the bike are way over priced for low sound quality they have. I don't have the...

    Having different material on each seat wouldn't bother me. I was worried if the Sargent front seat would be to low in the back with the stock rear, and leave too much of a gap.
