Ok, I'm finally taking the plunge...

After replacing more stock saddles than I can remember, and never going the whole way (settling for off-the-rack "custom" saddles) for a real fit-for-me seat, I'm finally getting a Russell.

The plan includes just the front seat, since I'm also anticipating mounting a tag-a-long fuel cell in the near future as well.

Can't wait, very excited!

Had mine done last summer and it is great! I got the front seat rebuilt and the rear covered to match. The seating position changed - taller and wider meant I was leaning down and forward more, so I ended up getting the Helibars triple and that, along with cruise control install makes the FJR comfy as my couch :)

After receiving your Russell seat back, you wonder why you waited so long to take the "plunge". Enjoy, I know I enjoy mine!
Like Russperry, I too installed a HeliBar (only before the seat) and the Vista Cruise. Contrary to what Russell says, as Russperry stated, you will sit slightly higher, or at least it seems like it.
Go for it, best money you will spend!

You will not be disappointed. Had mine done earlier this year. Awesome difference. Why did it take me so long?? :-)
