  1. Welcome to the asylum. That's a beautiful machine you've got there. You obviously have great taste in mc's.
  2. I've had both Sargent Seats and a Corbin. The Corbin in MUCH heavier. The Corbin came on a fifth gen I bought. I cannot remember if I ever tried it on a ride of significant distance. Being so heavy I did not consider using it when I could shift my Sargent to whatever machine I decided to ride. Bottom line: Very comfortable, good looking with the red welt and fake-carbon look cover, two-piece design convenient for accessing the storage space underneath. My first Sargent Seat was a one-piece which I preferred. Lent it out when a subsequent fifth gen came with a two-piece that I wanted to try that out, and never got it back (darn). Checking their website, they show only two-piece version for fifth gens.

    I think the pic is fabulous. Great contrast and, as anyone who has ever ridden one, it is truely a bright light at the end of the tunnel.
  4. The mention of Sargent and the wearing out of the red beads on my current seat propelled me to take a look at getting a new one. And, to my surprise, they are on sale. So I ordered a red-trimed one for for $352. 20% off. WoohPee!
  5. I've had Sargent seats on my fifths for the last 12 years and love them. Nothing but the best for my tush.
  6. So True. I've got a few "sayings" but I'll leave them to y'all's imagination. I'd be surprised if that isn't a common situation. But we'd need a non-family section to explore that subject in detail, as much as I'd find it interesting to do.
  7. Thanks for the heads-up on the insurance. Travel between states may be tough if non-essential travel is banned in some places. I'd feel conspicuous hauling a motorcycle on a trailer. (Arthritis prohibits my riding there. NUTS!)

    That's a nice looking machine. I like it a lot in that blue.

    That is a very nice lineup. I see you've put the best generation in front. Appropriate!
  11. BTW: Welcome to the asylum from The Land Of Interesting Weather. You obviously have great taste in mc's since you ride a fifth gen in the fastest color. But we need a picture of your machine to prove you are not a figment of our imagination. Good luck with your pain issues.
  12. Welcome to the asylum OldSchoolVFR from The Land Of Interesting Weather. We'd love to see a picture of your machine to prove you are not a figment of our imagination. Good luck with your project. Sorry I cannot answer your question but I'm pretty sure someone will be along to give you some help.

  14. Welcome to the asylum Fiat. We would love to see a picture of your machine to prove to us you are not a figment of out imagination.
  15. What a great article! I think this sentence describes how many of us feel about our machines, no matter how common or rare: Like many, I develop irrational sentimental attachments to fast mechanical objects. Sounds and smells bring back memories, and every time I ride this bike. Thank you St. Stephen
