    Russell Day-Long Touring Saddle "Never" Used

    Hey Riders - I am selling my Russell Day-Long touring saddle. Day-Long | Motorcycle Seats | Russell Cycle

    The seat is hand-made, custom build on the stock Honda NC700x seat pan (2013).

    I originally used the seat for a few trips with multiple 8-10 hour riding days with literally no soreness on my body. However, at a stop I would have to shift my position all they way to the front of the seat, tightly straddeling the storage compartment, and even then only my toes would touch the road. (I am 5'10" with 30" inseam.)

    I had the folks at Russell readjust/ remake the seat after a few thousand miles but the improvement was only marginal. I only rode the new seat after the adjustment for a few miles so it is in like-new condition.

    If it wasn't for my short legs I would NEVER sell this seat and would never buy another seat. It is the best seat I have ever rode on.

    Head over to ebay to see the pictures. If you want to purchase let me know and we conduct the sale privately to avoid ebay fees.

    Wishing you well with the sale. Have you thought of looking into lowering links?

    I have a 30 inch inseam and I had a Day-Long on my old 2009 BMW G650GS that I found at an auction. It was great, I had no trouble riding with it on the bike, stopping was never a problem. Getting on and off of the bike was only do-able by standing on the foot peg and lifting my leg over the back end of the bike. I weigh 40 pounds less than I did back then so maybe it might work for me now. Good luck with the sale and I hope someone buys it for your reserve price.

    I'd say you have 2 options... post your minimum asking price in the forum.. or wait until spring when you will likley get a good price for it.

    Russell day longs are the very best saddle you can buy
    on NC700x, also have a VFR 750

    Yes, they are fantastic saddles and I don't want to lower the links on my bike.

    Was waiting to hear back from a private message on ebay, but I'll go ahead on here:

    Forum folks: I'm asking $300 obo for this saddle.

    They are built for inseam and also weight. What is your weight?
    Do you need a stock seat since they build on your seat pan?

    I am 190 lbs.

    No, I don't need a stock seat. I already bought one for city riding when I was still trying to give the original saddle a chance.
