I don't have one (I have a Sargent ), but ASC has one.Thats a great price.
Can anyone confirm if the 2nd gen OEM Gel seat is similar to the 1st gen in that if it sits in the sun and then you hop on for a ride you will continually burn your arse for a good 10-15mins because it retains SOOOO MUCH heat? That's probably my biggest gripe with my 1st gen oem gel seat, well, that and that its got neoprene on the top so it absorbs water.
Correct. It gets hot... and STAYS hot. I work in Williamsburg, and even by the time I got to Yorktown... 14miles away... it was still too hot to sit on for any period of time. Actually got pulled over for standing on the pegs and "stunting", the LEO said. However, when I explained why I was standing, and had him touch the seat, he said "Jes... eepers, that is hot."I don't have one (I have a Sargent ), but ASC has one.
And if I remember correctly, those two complaints are the only two complaints that he has with the Gel seat.
Maybe you could just cover it with something?Crap. I want to get this. It's a good price and the stock seat won't cut it once the weather gets better and I ride longer.
However, I live in Reno. I also ride to work, leaving my bike out in the sun all day. 2 years ago the summer heat / sun was bad enough to, over the course of the summer, warp the fairing on my Ninja and melt the kickstand thru the asphalt. I think the heat retention is a deal breaker for me...
