John, I rode into Ventura.
Ok, thanks. As you said, all butts are different and if the Sargent works for you, great. That's all that matters. I'm glad that the Sargent is working great so far, and I hope the trip to British Columbia verifies you made the right choice.
I asked because I have a new BMS seat built for my GTL. I too did a ride-in to Ventura, but Bill (Rocky) Mayer isn't running the business any longer. Bill is somewhat retired now, mostly building saddles at national Rallies. Adrian, his senior long time employee building saddles, took over the business under his own name of Legendary BMS: www.legendarybms.com
. While working for Bill, Adrian built my 1200LT saddle in Ojai back in 2011. That bike couldn't have been more comfortable, so I didn't hesitate when I learned Adrian would build the GTL saddle. So far, so good. I only have 1000 miles in the new saddle -- but nothing more than 75 miles at a time. Like you, I'm about to take off on a 3500 mile round trip adventure, and that will be the final test.
Maybe we can compare seat notes when we both get back. Good luck on your trip!
