WOW what a difference! I popped it off while riding and the stock seat felt like a brick.

I put 15,000-odd km on one last summer... not as good as a custom saddle, but for the money I don't think you can beat 'em.

I did a 13 hour day using it on a 2004 FJR and I thought it helped a lot.

I have a 10 hour ride in two weeks on my 2009 and I'm hoping it makes the seat better. I think the Gen I seat was MUCH better thand the gen II seat.

For the money it seems like a major winner.

I've had one for 3 years now and wouldn't ride without it.

I "believe" mine is the medium, and it fit my 2004 FJR great.

The chart shows a Small for the FJR...is the medium a better fit?

***************************
I've got a Gen II Sargent on this '08...seems to be about the same size as the Gen I Sargent. I may try the airhawk since it does come with the money back guarantee.
