One of the questions I see a lot is many of you ask on the forum is about "How does XXXX seat fit? You ask about Corbin, Russell, and BurgmanSeats seats. It's a tough situation as they can cost more than $1,000 and it's a crap shoot if they are right for you.

So, here is the real question. As Reaper had mentioned wanting to meet up and try out a seat I have, I happen to have on hand a Russell Day Long and a Corbin. If I were to be at a pre-determined place at a set date, How many of you would be interested in "trying out" a seat? It would be a way to find out if a certain one is for you.

I was thinking about the 5th of July as I am off that weekend. The wife is working so I choose to do my business on those days. Reaper had mentioned Toledo. It would work for me. I would have to charge a small fee as I it will be a 400 mile trip and a complete day lost.

I only have seats for the 2003-2012 650 to bring.

That works for me and a fee IMO is understandable , but it would be a good idea to state what the fee would up front so there is no misunderstanding .

I was thinking about $20 a person. However, there appears to be a lack of interest. Maybe it is a good idea but just not the right time.

You know, if it's just Reaper, perhaps he could just meet you in Cincinnati? That way the person who wants the info would bear the cost.

Yes, but I am always thinking of what I could do for the group and when are you going to get the chance to try a $1,000 seat out and not have to buy it first? After all, there are always questions about "How does a Corbin feel? Well, this is a chance to find out. I know I like to sell seats, but it's more important that the riders understand what is best for them. And as always I will go the extra mile to benefit my fellow riders..

Like I said I don't mind contributing at all , as far as the 100 mile ride to get there goes that's OK too . Personally I think it's time and money well spent , and much better than spending $1,000 for a seat that you can't stand . How many opportunities are you going to get to see and sit on a Corbin , a Day-long and a Carey seat all in one place ? It would also give people a chance to meet up with other members and do a lunch or dinner thing .

And just as importantly , maybe even more importantly you get a once in a life time chance to meet TheReaper! :sleepy4: :D
