I've tried other seats, but so far the Kawasaki Touring seat is working out the best.

Thought I had already signed up but hadn't, done now. Looking forward to it.

Steve will you be leading the group from Florida and Georgia up here via the Burnette ranch? 

You're welcome to stay over if it ends up in your travel plans Steve. Roman will be coming to stay after the Wolf, so I'll have him in tow!

Cliff   :beerchug:
Thanks. I'll keep that in mind. Also, can you tell me the name of the huge dealer with the decent tire prices and service? I will need a rear tire after the Spider if I don't pull the current one early. Thanks again and see you and Jimmie at the Wolf.

Beam me up Scotty... this seems to be a bottomless thread  :)
I think you might be getting the picture right about now. You really need to try one out for yourself to see how it fits you.

I have a friend that's having his Laam seat reworked right now due to this issue. I used it for around 30 miles and couldn't stand it. For me the Baldwin GT has been a clear winner for comfort. I had a corbin before this on my 08 and hated it. I had it reworked custom and that helped a TON but still wasn't prefect. I got this bike with a stock seat and had Baldwin do his magic and love it. It's nice and level like the corbin but with some padding.
I love the combo
I'll have to look into the Baldwin.  It seems they're not accepting orders, at this time, however.
I looked at Baldwin’s website and saw the same thing.  No new orders being taken, I need to see if I can book a ride in for an adjustment!
Call or email Loren (Baldwin) Ran across him at the Nat in Kerrville. Told us he was coming back. I think there is a thread around here somewhere. Great seat, Great Guy.

I’m registering today- or as soon as my membership renews. I tried calling for a room...wow, don’t call the 1800 number, I was spammed with silly offers for a couple minutes. I’ll be rolling in from Nova Scotia with Claude, so I’m pretty stoked as this is my first “solo adventure ride”, or at least until I hook up with Claude in Halifax. Iff someone needs a room, their will be an extra bed for someone who doesn’t snore 😆

Looking forward to this trip that I’ve been planning for the last 18 months and the rally will be icing on the cake.

Glad you are coming!!!   Sorry to hear about the 800 number.   Feel free to send me a private message about it.

OEM petcock?  give the same ride a try with the petcock set on prime all the time.

Cal

while I never suggest riding on 'prime', or even setting it to 'prime' for longer than a moment or 2 to get fuel to the carb bowls, you comment does have some merit...

I'd suggest examining CLOSELY the vacume line from the caarb, to the petcock, for any signs of degradation, i.e., Cracks, or poor connection... pull the line off, and flex the ends, if it's cracked, you will notice them... OEM petcocks do function well for the mostpart, but a loss of vacume on that line, will shut off the fuel flow...
a free and harmless safe check, as opposed to running for any length of time on prime.

To you the touring seat is better then the Laam?
 I have a Laam and the only improvement over the stock seat is it doesn’t slide me to the seat! If he doesn’t want to try to make it better I think the touring seat will be next.
I have a Laam seat, as well, and am not happy with it.  It's better than the stock seat, but it still pushes me forward and my butt goes numb on long rides.

I've been interested in the Kawasaki Touring seat, but my local dealer doesn't have it in.  They'll order it if I pay, but I don't want to pay until I try it.
