Another Airhawk user here, the saviour of my boney derrière. Just remember that less is more when it comes to inflation. ;-)

I have an Airhawk, and it helped, but it was kind of a PITA to use. I now have a Sargent which I really like.

Any thoughts on a decent sheep skin option?


Anybody used memory foam?

Tried an Airhawk but didn’t get on with it...plus it’s easily stolen if someone recognises what it is and wants one badly enough.

I’ve had two Sargent seats now, one on my 12GS and the AT. Absolute saviour on long trips and worth every penny.

Yep, Sargent seats are good according to my butt. The factory seat is fine for a couple of hours, but my butt says it is no good for several hours of riding. After 6+ hours of riding I find a need to stretch out my legs, but don't notice any complaints coming from my butt - that suggests the Sargent seat is a non-issue for long stints of riding. The forward slide with the stock seat doesn't seem to happen with the Sargent seat.

Do you have pictures of it on the ATAS? I'm interested in the normal height version. I'm wondering how it's height compares to the stock ATAS seat - and how does it match up to the tank at the front? I saw an ATAS that had a big gap with a custom seat as though he had it in the low position - but was in the upper.

I have the sargent seat.. the standard. in the high position there is no gap, but in the low position there definitely is.

Although the standard sargent has the same seat height.. it feels lower and i reckon is somewhat lower due to the way its dished, rather than flat.

Thanks for the picture Motobiker - it looks as though it is the same height as the AT seat, which I'm fine with. I reach the ground flat footed with the ATAS seat on high - but I run it low because the extra leg angle makes my knees clear the tank cutouts a little better.

Sorry havnt checked posts for a while but as you can see by the other posters pick it fits really good ,I feel slightly lower in the high position than the stock seat if that makes sense..and Its slightly wider, spreading the load.
I am hoping It fits the 2020 model just in case I ever upgrade as I love this seat.
