Thanks Stu!
I thought I heard you mentioned about these guys before but I could not find the thead in the forum!
Any ideas in terms of prices?

I'll ask Posh Bird to give them a call so she can book our bikes in!

Again, thank you very much.
Cleber.

NP buddy Smile

To recover, extend & reshape my cruisers riders seat, put a gel pad in the rider seat of the cruiser and another in the pillion seat and a 3rd in the CBF rider seat with some extra foam in all 3 came to 350.

When he sculpted my cb1300 seat and put a gel in that it was 110.

No need to make an appointment just call ahead to see if he's open and turn up. It'll take him about an hour for both bikes and there's a cafe next door that does a stonkin fry up and coffee while u wait.

BTW he takes cards etc there are decent roads there and back:).

If your interested he can customise the seat cover (emboss and embroider) but you will need to leave the seat there for that.

Its all to do with preferance and weight.

With the memory foam it will mould to the shape of yer arse when our on the bike but needs to be a pretty thick layer to offer any extra comform. Its also cheaper that then gel.

The gel is only about 1.8mm (3/4 inch) thick and offers better comfort. But the gel pads are about 90 each.

If (like me) you have the build of Father Christmas, the Foam isnt really any good as it can compress under your weight to the point of not being any use.

Saying that, I went for a combinatin of both memory foam and gel pad on all the sets Ive had done

The objective here is to obtain confort on longer rides specially for Posh as she has back problems. The GSXR seat is not a very confortable either so I think the gel will do for me but I may get the combination of foam and gel for Posh but I'll let her decide.
