    I could care less either way about the logo, but I would love to have a comfortable seat for that price. Plus it would do away with my "Stripe of Shame" problem. Looking forward to the review! Sitting on a BeadRider for now and it's better than nothing.

    Nice looking seat at a nice price! Too bad about that big logo. I'd like to see some pictures of the underside of the passenger seat to see if the hinge mechanics are as well thought out as the stock seat. I was disappointed with the shortcuts Corbin took with their passenger seat hardware.

    If the seat is comfortable I'm not really concerned about the Logo, I would still buy it even if it had Obama's face on it!
    I very much doubt if a logo or name on a quality item that is comfortable would hurt sales! Unless you are into fashion?

    would have thought you were more of the function over form sort of guy.......
    just saying; to each his own, eh?

    anyway... SHAD USA contacted me to update my order status and said that they were offering a special discount to those who would be willing to post pictures and testimony on their site about the seat... might be worth contacting them to get an even bettter deal

    Also count me in as one that thinks the logo looks cheesy. I already know the name of the bike. Honda put it on the side cover. It's not like I need a reminder. The first thing I would ask is if it was available without it. Same goes for the Corbin seat with their advertising on the side.

    I wish they sold just the front seat for a cheaper price,my wife has her own bike so a passenger on the X would be just for emergencies.

    I'm willing to give it a try. In the past they've put a lot of effort into the models that they've sold (like the MP3 that Fuzzy mentioned... just not the 500/Fuoco version that I had). Shad makes some really solid products. Hopefully they offer a few different aesthetic options. The price is pretty reasonable compared to a custom job which is good if you're on the East Coast. For some reason the West Coast has a monopoly on saddle upholsterers. I guess that has a lot to do with the weather.

    Do they need your original seat to upholster the new one?

    Says on the website they do NOT need your old seat. You keep it as a backup or sell it on ebay

    Thanks for letting us know the integrity of their reviews is tainted.
