Baldwin Motorbike Saddles (Grand Touring Model)
« on: August 09, 2015, 01:07:26 am »
I couldn't get along with the stock low seat that is shipped on the TTSE here in the USA so I contacted Loren at Baldwin Motorbike Saddles.  This is my second Baldwin seat.  I had the Grand Touring model put on my 2012 V-Strom 650 and it was the best upgrade I made for long distance touring.  I'm 5'10" with a 31' inseam...with the stock seat, I could flat foot the bike.  Now, I'm up on the balls of my feet, which is fine for me.  The added leg room is also nice. 

$475...plus shipping

Here are a few pictures:

That looks really nice. The work was done on the stock low seat?

$475+ shipping...his lead time is 4 to 5 weeks.  You place your order and when he's ready he'll give you a date when your seat has to be at his shop.  He tries to reduce the amount of time you are without a seat.  From the time I shipped it to him to when I recieved it was around two weeks.  I think this was his first TTSE seat so I doubt he has core exchange.

Definitely a very comfortable looking saddle, looks very supportive, almost plush. One of the best looking that I've seen for touring on the Trophy.
