Has any Maryland FZ-09 owner installed a Saddleman seat? I'd like to sit on one before buying.

Well, I have a bad lower back. I broke it in a auto accident over 30 years ago. Anyway the Saddleman has a similar profile as the stock seat which for me puts pressure in that area and causes discomfort. The seat is way more comfortable than that of the stocker however for me it doesn't quite work due to preexisting conditions.

similar profile, eh? that has been one of my concerns. If you haven't sold it by spring time I'll ride up and check it out. Too cold to ride up now.

I'm in Frederick but chose to forego the Saddleman to get a custom seat from Dual Sport Touring in Tennessee. image.jpg
It was about $240 w shipping. I'm quote happy as the comfort is better, passengers are MUCH happier and I think it maintains the slim line of the stock seat.

I'd like to check that out. The stock seat has to go but at 6'4" finding a decent seat isn't easy. I'll send you a PM.
