I got a RMS seat for the 2016 AT in January. Was considering a Russell Daylong, which I have and love on my 2007 Yamaha FZ1, but checking the RMS site in mid December he had an offer of $150 off the normal $599 for vinyl seats as long as they were ordered by 12/24/18. I got a Honda low seat ordered to use the seat pan so I could keep the stock one as an option. Called RMS and talked to the owner Rocky and discussed color and vinyl options. I went with his recommendations and sent him the low seat along with some pictures of me on the bike and my measurements. I got it back about 2 weeks later. My bike's in storage but I had access to another AT so I mounted it and took some pix. It feels comfortable but I won't know until late March or April around here (Minnesota).
Anybody else have one of these? Let me know your opinions. Thanks

At least you’ll be speaking the truth when you say “I spent hours in the saddle”!!!
Looks super comfy though

I had Rick Mayer (brothers I think) do a couple of seats for me years ago on a Buell and FJR1300. Fantastic job and although the FJR is gone we still have the Buell and the seat has held up well.

how close is it to the stock height on your AT ? How wide is it at the widest point? have you ridden it enough to assess comfort ? Does it impede handling in rough terrain? That was a lot of questions. Thanks for any insight.
