    After market set for new wet head GS

    Well I see that both Corbin & Sargent have released aftermarket seats for the Wethead GS.

    http://www.corbin.com/bmw/bmwgs12cds13e.shtml

    http://www.sargentcycle.com/Seats-Ac...R1200GSA-2013/

    Corbin's seat a one piece Dual saddle........doesn't say anything about height adjustment. My Corbin on the 05 GS had what they called a nose job, making the front narrower allowing a better reach to the ground.

    Sargent's is offering the front and rear as separate units and in two heights with two styles. The low is 2 inches lower which sounds good but I'm wondering about the extra bend it will put on the ol knees.

    I've always been a Corbin man but I'm not to keen on that dual saddle.

    Has anyone got either seat yet?

    I should have a Saddleman touring low seat for my 2014 GSA today. I will report how it works outs. You can get standard or low from Revzilla for $549 front and back no heat.

    Compare how much each seat weighs.

    My used purchase R1100S came with a Corbin that must weigh at least 20 pounds ... compared to about 4 for the stock seat I replaced it with. I doubt all aftermarket seats weigh the same.
