Sweet Sargent seat exp!!!

So I am in training at camp blanding which is south of Jacksonville and find out that Sargent cycle seats is located in downtown jax. I went up today to get my zx-14 seat redone to my specs with softer foam etc. Well the owner comes out and shows me the prototype seat they are building for it that has a built in storage pod. It was badass, it's a 3 piece design that basically is the front seat, back seat, and storage pod. It can be used with just the front seat and oem cowling or with the comfy back seat or with the storage pod. The storage pod is pretty sweet with a boult in light as soon as u open it the light comes on and there is additional storage built in underneath the front seat aswell.

We got to talking and he wants to use my bike ad the final fitment for this prototype and will sell it to me at a discounted price with me being the first to have it on my bike!!! Freakin sweet. Either way those guys were nice as and hopefully I will have this seat by the end of feb. I tried to take pics of the seat because I know it's pics or it didn't happen but they didn't let me cuz it was a prototype and some one could steal the design. Either way it was a badass experience. That is all.

Here is what the computer protype looks like

So I did get a call from Troy Sargent today asking to borrow my bike for final adjustments and I dropped it off after training today. Goodnews is that he says I will get a "substantial" discount for my help in the project
Badnews is the cargo pod won't be released till the summer. I can only get the front and back seat.

Sargent's awsome! They did the same thing for another guy on another Forum, for his 919. They had made a prototype 919 seat, and I think they gave him the seat for free (or a severe discount), using his bike for their ads.

I can only wish they hook me up with the seat for free. We will see the seat should be ready in 2 weeks I think.
