Following this, has anyone tried the sport saddle? The GT looks interesting, but I do a LOT of twisties, and the ability to move around on the seat is very important to me. Would the Sport be good for long distance as well?

Well, to be fair, I do at least as many twisties Chris, going so much into WV and such as I do. And the GT is just fine with it.

Like I said, if you think your C14 is a track bike, I got news for ya, and if I was running mine on the track, I wouldn't want the GT on it. But I'd put it back on for the ride home.

Valid point, John!

Did you have this when we rode out to the National? I have no money left (cause I spent it all on the new bike, haha!) but will save up some so it's ready by this year's National.

Actually I did not have it on going to the National in 2012 because I couldn't touch the ground. What can I say, I'm a munchkin. And I was irritated the whole time I didn't have the GT on, because I already knew how much I liked it. Ever since, its been on because I solved the touching the ground problem.  :rotflmao: :beerchug:

If you are riding out to Idaho Falls you will be so happy if you riding on a Baldwin GT saddle!

When I do my grand tour (5-6 months on the road) after I retire in 2014, I'm going to do about 4-5 hours a day, in no particular hurry, bouncing from KOA to KOA to someone's front lawn to County park to KOA all the way across the country north and south and every which way. The Baldwin saddle is going to figure prominently in that adventure, especially after I've been on the road for a couple weeks.

When I come into twisty sections, I'll have as much fun as I can considering the camper trailer I'm pulling behind me.   :motonoises:
