PCS Seat Testimonials

I ordered the chip sear for my 1100 v star but before it was shipped I traded for the 1300. I made 1 quick call to PCS, got it changed without any problems. I got the new bike on a Tuesday put a couple hundred miles on it, Friday my new seat arrived, immediately installed it and took off. All I can say about it is "AWESOME" the more I ride the better I like It. Thanks PCS

Installed your new seats for my bike and I am REALLY happy with them! Great fit and finish and the comfort is FAR greater than stock. My wife and I took a 200 mile test ride (each way) and butt ache is now history! Best part is that they retain the stock appearance and that is one of the main reasons we bought our bike. The best part is the low price for the seat set! You just can't beat it! Thank you for you excellent service.

Before buying your seat for my star 1300, I looked at other seats from different companies out there in the market and have been eyeing your seat for a long time. Finally I decided to give it a try. I received your "original tour" seat yesterday and it looks amazing, looks professionally finished too. I sat on my stock seat and compared it to your seat and I must say that the PCS seat is way more comfortable. You sit in the seat rather than on top of the stock seat which is very uncomfortable for your lower back and especially on those long rides. Thanks again to PCS. I will be telling other riders about your great product and great customer service.

I have the regular seat with studs, the Pacific Coast seat is much more comfortable, I can ride longer with no pain, the seating position is a bite lower which is nice, it feels like a little forward also but not much, when I got it and took it out of the box it looked like a brand new seat. For the price this was a good buy and worthwhile doing!

The 'Potato chip' seat: I just came back from a 1900 mile run from Vallejo, CA to Forks, WA and back again. Thinking I should use the touring seat, I decided to put the 'Chip' & the passenger pillion through its paces. I'm thrilled to report this seat is more comfortable than any seat I had or have now. I could put on way more miles & my wife was a lot more comfortable also. The black ostrich adds so much class to the look of the bike. Style & comfort. I have it all. Good job Pacific Coast star!!

Hello PCS,
Why did I wait so Long? Just received my new classic seat for my ride. Wow, it not only looks great but rides like a dream. On the old stock seat, after 30-40 minutes I started to feel back pain. Rode my ride for 2 hours with your new seat. It was a whole new experience in riding....no pain...no stiffness. Way to go PCS! Thanks for a great product. With the money saved by not purchasing a product made elsewhere, I can now shop around for new pipes.

I've waited to email and let you know how much I liked my seat, till I was sure. Guys,.. you have it down to a science!! I'm a BIG guy and I rode 100 - 150 miles the first few trips and when I got off to get gas, I wasn't crippled in my lower back and butt. I then tackled the Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, & 350 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! I was able to enjoy a road trip that I couldn't have before I got my seat. Comfortable and looks GREAT thanks again Big -C-

Just got the Potato Chip, Lowering Kit, and Forward Control Extenders. WOW! Can't believe the difference this stuff made, my ride height is now 25", my balance is SOOOOO much better, and with my feet moved forward I feel like I'm riding my recliner down the highway. Seat is very comfortable, infinitely better than stock despite the thin profile. I'm 6'1" and 225 lbs, but there is still plenty of cushion. The forward controls were easy to install, took maybe 20 minutes. The lowering kit was a little more difficult, but with a Sears bike lift or similar it shouldn't take you more than an hour or so. I am not too handy with a wrench, I don't even change my own oil, but I got them installed with minimal headaches. All in all I'd say I am more than thrilled with the products I purchased and recommend them and Pacific Coast Star to anyone looking for quality affordable accessories.

Thanks for working with me on my seat. The stock Yamaha seat has been reasonable, but I knew more comfort was to be had. I tried the Chip seat which was fabulous around town. I have a 32" inseam. A ride to and from Santa Barbara convinced me to try the regular PCS custom seat. The first six times I sat on it while riding, the seat was more comfortable each time I sat on it. Now I'm ready for long-haul riding. The cost? Ridiculously low. The look? Best-ever. I'm in the midst of installing the PCS Chrome stock wheel conversion. The beauty of these wheels is not to be believed until they are received. I also added a riser tach to the bike and couldn't be happier with its looks and performance. I'd advise everyone who has a V-Star to look to PCS first. Lastly, I received the PCS forward controls kit. Beats the heck out of the competition which I had to return for multiple problems. Not so with the PCS.

Bought your seat and rode to Seattle WA and a lot of places in between. This is the best improvement I have put on the bike. 500 to 600 mile days were no problem and the price is just right. 65 years old and still riding.

I just wanted to drop a quick note concerning the seat you provided for my Road Star. I've been on a couple fairly long rides since receiving it and my rear end is very happy now. I don't get that numb feeling after the first 50 miles. You have a very happy customer. I'll spread the word about Pacific Coast Star to all who are looking for an alternative to $800 seats.

I just received my PCS original seat and well worth the wait, it drops you down and back a touch with no annoying hump that's in the stock seats, I noticed the difference in my usual half an hour 25 mile rides, to anyone looking for a seat upgrade at a FANTASTIC price, you will not be disappointed with the quality of the PCS seats, thank you guys,,s.j.

I received the potato chip seat as a gift and it arrived today. I CANNOT BELIEVE what a huge difference this seat makes not only in the looks, but also in the comfort. I am actually sitting IN the bike instead of on top of it. The seat adds a whole new level of comfort and customization. You guys ROCK and trust me.....it was worth the wait.

Well... I received the new seat on Tuesday, during a rather intense rain storm - With life as a grown up interfering with my druthers, I wasn't able to go for a long ride until today. With my butt planted firmly on my new seat (and my Sweetie off to film school) I made the dash to Cannon Beach and back (250+ miles) without trouble-- Damn nice seat guys! Thanks (oh and expect some referrals from me)

Just received my new potato chip seat last week and donít ever let anyone tell you different Ė potato chips ARE good for your butt!!! Together with the PCS rear lowering kit, my bike is slammed to the ground. The seat has totally changed the attitude and appearance of my Star and the ride and build quality of the seat is superb, not to mention the fantastic price. Have patience once you place your order and rest assured it is worth the wait. Donít wait, however, any longerÖ if youíre thinking about a new seat for your Star, order it from PCS!!!

I apologize that I don't remember who I talked to when I ordered the potato chip seat for my wife's 1100 v star but he talked to me for a while and answered all my questions, Thank You! The seat is perfect and it really helps my wife touch the ground better, she is only 5' tall so this helps the confidence allot! I will be returning the core or old seat, please keep up the quality work and service.

I did a lot of research on seats and couldn't believe how expensive they can be, but then I came across the PCS website, read the testimonials, the unbeatable return policy (return after a week with no questions asked) not to mention the LOW PRICE and just had to try purchasing a seat from them. I opted for the potato chip seat and lowering kit, I now know what people mean by riding in the bike as oppose to on top of the bike, definitely more control and stability. Thanks guys for making affordable custom seats. I already have in mind what I will be purchasing in the future from you guys.

My new Road Star Potato Chip seat arrived! I'm very pleased with your work and my dealings with Pacific Coast Star. I'm all set to enjoy my new seat come this April and I will get a chance to see it on the bike in the next week or so. I'm going to take it to my local Yamaha dealer and show the guys there. They saw it on your web site and now then can see the real thing!
Hope to do business again,

I ordered the Ultimate slam kit for my Vstar Classic. Being the impatient person that I am, I couldn't wait to get my stuff and put it on. When It finally came, it was well worth the wait!!
My Star looks SICK!!!! And it even feels better as far as handling and turning.
The stock seats on Yamahas suck. A word of advice, be patient, let these guys make a seat for you, and you will not be disappointed!!!

You people are freaks! You received my seat last Wed, did your thing (Original style), and shipped it out on.....the same day! Just took a 250 mile ride to check it out. Trying to figure out why I didn't do this a long time ago - never been accused of being too bright, I guess. Me and my rear thank you!!

Recently purchased the "regular" seat. Much better than the factory seat. Flat level seating verses the butt numbing hump of the factory seat. Plus really finishes out the look of a great low, long, and lean ride. Great job guys.... with the great Texas weather I spend alot of time in the saddle.

You know...When I got the Roadstar, I rode it like everyone else and said to myself, what the hell is up with that seat?!? And, why are the handlebars SO far forward? I'm 6' tall and not a small dude by anyone's measure. I got wind of PCS and had 'em put on the Chip. My God. What a difference. Lower, better control, better look, you name it.
I've thrown a bunch of chrome on the bike and have finally just dropped off the bike at their shop for new bars, braided lines, chromage and a few other things. They need to keep my scooter for a few weeks and you know what, as bad as I'm jonesin' to have it back already (just dropped it off last night), I don't have a problem with them hanging on to it. I know it's in good hands. These guys gave me a good price and have always given me great service with a handshake.
Highly recommended to all, no reservations. You just don't find people like this too often, let alone in the automotive/cycling industry. Give 'em support and business guys, they got it comin'.
Ride well bros.

I have had my "Original" PCS seat for about a month on my V-Star 1100 Custom. It gets me closer to the ground, and it is way comfortable. I usually do a 200 or so mile trip every week with a guy who has the "chip" seat on his V-Star 1100 Classic. Same story from him, no complaints.

Thanks guys,

I just want to start off and say that PCS customer service is excellent. I had a miscommunication and my seat did not get ordered when they said it did. Cary wrote me an e-mail and we had it straightened out in now time. Not too many companies like to take the blame but he did. Anyway the seat has been on the bike for 2 years and 20,000 miles all I can say is awesome!!!!!!!!!!! I can ride for hours and with the OEM after about 100 miles I was sore, and you cannot beat the price. I would highly recommend the seat to any one. I got the Original.

Cary and Greg, thought I'd drop a few lines. I purchased the Potato Chip, Pillion Seat and Lowering Kit. PCS' Seat is very comfortable and like other riders have said it feels like your riding in the bike, not on top of it. The bike looks GREAT sits 22 3/8" ground to seat standing up, get plenty of compliments THANKS. Give out your wed address to all that ask, highly recommended. Nice doing business with you both

Just rode home last night with your potato chip seat on my wife's ride. After scolding me for taking her new bike out without her, she couldn't get over how much better the new seat looked. She starts her MSF course tomorrow, so she'll have to wait 'til this weekend to see how great it FEELS, too. Next time I'm by (stretch tank?), I'll have to get your autographs. You guys are gonna be a BIG hit!

Thanks again,

I just had to drop a not to say what an exceptional product you folks have. I started out by purchasing your lowering kit for my V Star 1100 Classic, and man, what a huge difference it made. I then had to purchase your Potato Chip seat and what an even bigger difference that made. It gave my bike the exact look I as looking for. I placed my order for the seat on a Sunday evening and had my new seat on my bike by Thursday afternoon. I couldn't be happier. And I forgot to mention that the lowering kit took me a total of 45 minutes to install. Thanks again for making my bike the bike I had always imagined.

Just wanted to let you guys know I love the potato chip seat. I was surprised how much more comfortable it was over the stock setup. That with my pcs lowering kit really gave my bike the look I was after. Just ordered a new fender and tank from you guys and can't wait to get them so they can go out for paint. Still deciding on the style rear fender I will purchase from you. Keep up the good work. You guys blow allot of the other vendors out of the water. Ride on

I just wanted to say that the Chip seat is awesome! It gives the bike a much more custom look, the way it follows the frame and fender lines. Of course, the lowering kit adds to the look as well. Together, they make the bike look and feel low, lean, and mean. The stock seat is in route to you guys. Thanks again.

AWESOME seat!! I bought the ultimate slam package. I love the look of the seat and when I slammed the bike it even looked better! Installation was very easy. It took about an hour and half. Great customer service! Greg had every answer and was very willing to help in any way he could. Received the core refund check in record time! Very pleased and will recommend you guys to as many bikers as I can. I have already had allot of comments on the seat and the lowering kit. Great job!!

Thanks so much

Where to start? I initially ordered the Ultimate Slam kit and an AIS kit in February, and had them installed the day I got them - WOW what a difference! I swear I sit 4 inches lower than stock. (of course I had to shovel snow to get the bike into the garage from the shed, so I couldn't ride it yet - arghhhh!)

Then I decided spring was a ways off and went ahead and ordered the air cleaner and had Greg and Cary Chrome it for me as well.

The bike is now together, the snow is gone (almost) and I've had her out on the road again. I can't believe the difference in the feel of riding now with the chip seat and lowering kit. And the look of that DPM air cleaner is fantastic! Thanks again guys for your wonderful and fast service, as well as a great product!

I was skeptical at first -- how can a seat which cost a fraction of the competition's be as good as the competition -- I said NO WAY possible! That was until I sat down on one of your seats. I immediately said YES WAY possible! All I can say is that PCS may not have the brand name of Corbin or Mustang or LePera and all those other brands - remember this, let your butt do the judging and you will soon realize that the PCS seat is as good as any of the others mentioned (plus you save mucho $$$ for the chrome goodies).

The cool thing about the guys is that they know how to wrench and they know their Yamahas. For me it was worth the 200+ miles round trip to get there and back. The advice and work (fixed most(?)of the things the dealer screwed up on) they did for me was worth my time. In fact, I hope to see you guys soon. By the way, PCS sells more than just seats -- this website does not do justice for all the other goodies they sell. SoCal riders, make the trip to Dana Point and do yourself and your bike a favor. I'm sure glad I did.

Hey guys, received the ultimate slam package today and installed the seat and lowering kit in 1 hour (by myself). The seat fits me like a glove and really does change the appearance of the bike for the better. The lowering kit is awesome very easy to install and adjust the best thing is if I get tired of riding LOW I can adjust it up a bit for a different look all together. You guys have been a great pleasure to work with and will continue to do business with you and tell others about you. Thanks again for your knowledge and professional attitude.

Just a word of thanks to the guys at PCS. I called them with a mechanical problem with my bike. I hadn't bought a thing from them, still they helped me with my problem. I just bought a potato chip seat after lower the bike myself (3in in back, 2 1/4 in front). feels soo freakin great!! I'll do business with those guys anytime

Thanks again

The "Original Seat" is AWESOME. (Like everyone else has stated).
I have the seat rail on my bike and I just have to say that this seat is THE BEST match for this Seat Rail. The curves and match up are exactly the same. Better than stock. The Corbin Boulevard seat does not work at all.
I just road 600 miles in the past 2 days and I have to say my butt is not aching at all!

PCS is great to work with.

Mt. Baldy & A Coastal Sunset Cruz-z-z!
Early one July morning, the San Diego Star Club met for a group ride up to Mt. Baldy. It's about a 300 mile round trip if you follow the coast line back.
First, all the members had to gather round my bike and comment about how way cool and/or wicked the 'Warrior' looked. And, how did I lower it and where did that seat come from? I pointed to my Pacific Coast Star hat and shared the web site address with them.
The ride was a combination of freeway speed runs and mountain twisties in 105 degree heat. My seat stayed cool and comfortable while the bike handled great! The long coast line cruise was awesome during a perfect sunset. What a way to experience a cool bike set up and a fun ride...
Readers; check out my bike picture on the lowering kits page! It's not hard to find. :~)
Guys; these are some good sites for sharing info and stuff. Join ABATE and help preserve our right to ride free and safe!

Your stuff is really great! Thanx...

It is so nice to deal with the guys at P. C. S.. Top notch customer service, and they deliver a great product. The factory seat was a back killing, butt breaking nightmare. Pacific Coast Star really delivered everything they said they would with there ORIGINAL seat. I only get out of the saddle if I want to now .Thanks guys, I really enjoy this scooter again.Thanks...

Had Greg and Cary custom fit my seat because I was close enough to take it to them and they lowered my ride 2 1/4" for my while I waited. The best testimony I can give is 12K on the bike after the mods and not a sore butt to be found. I will be getting my Midnight Star next week and will have it lowered and the seat cut down ASAP. These guys are the best and their work is too.

Wanted one of your seats and finally decided to try the "potato chip". It takes a while to get used to the ride (as good or better than stock), but I really like the look it gives the Classic. If you want the stock width, go with the "original". If you want a good feel and a great look, get the "chip". This one modification made the biggest difference in both the comfort and looks of my ride.

I shopped the entire market and found the PCS Original to be the best value and had lots of good testimonial feedbacks about the seat and the excellent service. I agree Cary and Greg are really interested in customer satisfaction. I was fortunate and had a great ride to their shop to get the seat. While there and recognizing these guys cared about me and answered my many questions, I bought a lowering kit also. Both the Original and the lowering kit make the bike a lot more balanced and after about 500 miles of riding, the seat is much better than the stock one. I expect it to get better as time passes. I am over 60 years old and really needed this to make my riding more enjoyable.
Cary and Greg thanks a million.

Sincerely, Turbodave

NO MORE GUMMI BEARS FOR ME! Just back from 1265 mile trip to Myrtle Beach, including a little jaunt into North Carolina. The potato chip is better than I had even hoped. NO tailbone pain! Feels good, looks good. It sits me a couple inches lower than stock, and with the rear lowering kit and 2" risers on the bars, I've got the perfect kinda laid-back driving position for me. The ONLY complaint I have is that it took almost a month to get the seat. You might want to ask how long it'll take when you are ordering it (I didn't) so you are not waiting impatiently. Plan ahead. I think you'll find it's worth the wait!!

My wife hates the PCS original seat! Maybe that is because it is on my bike and makes me want ride ALOT more. With the PCS seat I look at fuel stops as a nuisance not a break for my derrier. My wife might hate it, but I LOVE it and my kid loves the comfort of the PCS pillion over the stock! Great job from a couple of great guys.

I tried out my "original" seat today for the first time. I rode 254 miles, and I have to say it is the best $80. I have spent on my bike. I butt didn't get numb and tingling sensation I normally get from the stock seat. One of my friends had to try it and he is ordering one tomorrow. Customer service was great. I even canceled one order for a bike I sold and they didn't fuss one bit. Great guys to work with

Finally got the chance to take a ride with the new potato chip seat on my Classic. What a difference! Love the way you feel a part of the bike instead of riding on top of it! Just a short ride but the seat felt really comfortable. Craftsmanship is top quality. Seat really looks good on the bike. Your prices are so reasonable too. Thanks for offering such a good seat for a great price. I returned my stock seat the day I received the potato chip. I just knew I'd love it even before taking a ride.
Keep up the good work! I'd recommend the PCS seat to everyone.

PCS custom cut my V-Star seat and it is like riding a lazyboy recliner. I didn't like the stock seat on my new V-Max so I had PCS Custom cut the V-Max seat. Well, I just did 75 miles on my V-Max and it works great. Thanks.

Cary and Greg customized my seat to fit me better and support my back. As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I can recommend this seat shaping to ease the back. It is much more comfortable now due to improved ergonomics. That same night they lowered the back of my bike with their "special" kit. With the new seat and the lowered wheel, the bike definitely handles better. Seems there is more traction on turns due to lower center of gravity. This metric bike is looking more like an expensive Harley every time I go to Pacific Coast!!!!!

Well the wife has gotten some seat time on the passenger seat and she said there is a noticeable difference. A lot more comfortable on her butt and back. We have only done a few short rides, but she is much happier. Now we're both stylin' and happy on our PCS seats!

I, like many of the other testimonials, thank Cary and Greg. I drove up to their shop on an original Magna seat that would put my rear end to sleep in 40 miles or less. I left with the same seat modified to give me more space and deeper. I have more leg room and I actually sit farther away from the handlebars. Their dedication to make me (the customer) feel good was something I had not run into in quite some time. I am really happy that I did it.

I have just witnessed a "Butt Miracle." I installed your redesigned "original" seat, and spent 20 minutes just sitting on it--almost lounging in it. Then I rode it for over 1 painless hour. You guys are the Sultans of Seats. It's sad to think that so many people will pay so much money for "overpriced, over-hyped name-brand seats" when all they need is a PSC Original or Potato Chip seat.
I'll do my best to make sure my Yamaha friends know about you. Seriously, thanks so much for making my bike more fun, more comfortable and, I think, more safe to ride. The stock torture seat that came with my bike is limping its way back to you. Cary and Greg, thanks to both of you.

Total customer satisfaction! I would just like to extend a written thanks for the optimum quality "Potato Chip" seat. You were quite accurate when you described the new feel one would experience when riding on the "Potato Chip" seat. While riding I began to feel a oneness w/my putt, rather than having the same old feeling that I was riding on top of it. You guys are a team that most definitely work harmoniously w/each other. In addition, I find it extremely nice to have my 2001 Midnight Star lowered by you guys! Its like having a brand new bike. When both of my feet are on the ground my knees are even bent and that's quite new for a guy thats 5'7". I am extremely grateful for your assistance and I hope to continue to do business w/you in the future. You guys certainly contributed to me feeling right at home and confident with you working on my prized possession.

Hey guys, got my seat and I love it. This thing really fits me like a glove. The "Potato Chip" coupled with the lowering kit sat my bike down just the way I like it. You guys are great to do business with, I will be back. I recommend you guys to all of my Star riding friends. Thanks again.

Hey guys, just got home from your shop and wanted to say thanks again for the new ride. What a difference! Without a doubt the best bang for the buck I've ever seen. Thanks for allowing me to watch the potato chip conversion. You guys are indeed artists. I'll be in touch soon for the additional work we spoke of. If it's as high quality as the potato chip I'm sure I will be extremely pleased.

I sent my custom painted helmet for you to match the custom paint on my bike, and the results are in. The seat blends in with the bike and does not distract from it as the standard black did. It is awesome. The "potato chip" seat is also more comfortable, I'll even ride when it is in the 40's. It is that good. If anyone needs a seat I tell them there is only one place to get one. Your product is fantastic. Thanks again.

Cary and Greg you guys are GREAT! I wanted to spend the big bucks for one of the commercial seats out there but decided to give PCS's seat a work out so I had their "original" delivered prior to my June 2001 trip to Hot Springs AR for the ISRA Cruise In. Well I put 2,400 miles on that seat in a week and loved every mile, no more sore Butt! The seat set me back and "into" the bike and I actually feel a part of the bike instead of riding on it. I now average 300-500 mile days on the weekends that I am off and wish I had a larger tank at times. I would have never enjoyed my bike as much with out your exchange seat program. Thanks to PCS's seat I even was able to complete the IBA 1000 mile run in less than 22 hours with no discomfort! I now have put over 8,000 miles on the "Original" PCS exchange seat and still love it as much as I did the first time I laid my rear onto it. You guys are great and it was a pleasure doing business with you and I look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.

Cary and Greg have been awesome to deal with. I wanted a special leather seat for my bike that I was customizing. They worked with me to match the seat to paint, and gave me suggestions. The bike looks great, and they rush shipped it to me here in Florida in time for me to place 2nd in the Jacksonville custom bike show. Getting beaten in this show by a tailored custom built chopper, that didn't even have a speedo or tach. I have had a ton of compliments on the seat and I have referred several people to Pacific Coast Star, and will continue to refer. Thanks guys, the product is great and the customer service is even better.

Hey Guys,
I've got a potato chip stuck to my butt... and I LOVE IT! I got my potato chip seat and the standard pillion for my 1100 custom and its great. The look flows with the lines of the bike... it puts me in a lower, more comfortable and cooler looking riding position. Plus, the potato chip seat actually looks great with the standard pillion.

Great job,

I put the seat on last night, rode 100 miles after work today, and I am truly pleased with your product. I thought perhaps you impregnated the seat with Novocain, because my butt didn't hurt at all. Best money I've spent on the Bike.

We had the "Original" job done on my stock RoadStar seats and are very happy with the results. Went for a long test ride and my wife and I both could tell that the comfort level of our seats had improved greatly. Great service from Cary and Greg at Pacific Coast Star!

Thanks again,

Last Saturday and Sunday Tracy and I logged in over 700 mile on "Tuff" (my 1100 classic V-Star), now I know this isn't alot compared to some of the Wing Riders but it is alot on a Cruiser or at least alot to me. Before I had my seat and pillion reworked by Pacific Coast Star that much riding would have my lower back and shoulders hurting all the next week but with the reworked seats we took the trip just great, Tracy and myself would like to thank PCS for a GREAT PAIR of SEATS.

I do not give testimonials often, but Cary and Greg deserve accolades and praise for the customer service and great V* products. Iíd have to say the seat upgrade was the best money spent on my bike and bottom. I can now ride all day long, while beforehand I only could spend an hour on the stock saddle! Not to mention it really looks great (potato chip), many observers comment on the seat. I also got the AIS kit from Pacific Coast Star, which help stop the annoying popping and backfires. My Cobraís now have a better sound if that is possible. Iíll soon to add the lowering kit; I know Iíll be happy with the lowing kit, as Iíve been with all the products they offer. Keep up the great work guys, you deserve all the good fortune for all the great customer service and advise you have offered me this year

I have to start off with a big thanks to Cary and Greg, they are two great guys. There workmanship is nothing but the best. You wouldn't believe the difference a seat could make. I have a little over 2,000 miles on this seat(orignal exchange). I can ride a lot longer with no pain in my lower back or butt. With this seat, I know I will be taking longer trips.
Thanks again,

Hi Cary, Well I finally got the new seat installed between rain showers and got a sunny 88 degree day today to try it out. It's just what I've wanted, as a return again rider after a long layoff I feel much more comfortable on the bike now. The new seat sits slightly lower and I feel part of the bike rather then sitting on the bike and I'm much more comfortable. You guys are professionals and it's been a pleasure doing business with you.

I had tried other seats. Saw a post about PCS on ISRA and figured I'd give it a shot. Overnighted my seat to PCS (long story.....remember?!) and they sent me back MY seat a few days later. All I can say is WOW!!!! I am no longer aching after a few miles on the road!!! The best $ I spent on my bike yet!!!!!

Thanks guys!!!!
