In April 2008 Russell Cycle Products purchased our own foam processing machine. We named it "The Foaminator".
The unit was custom built for us...Learn More>>

"After 1200+ miles on my 1200RT I can say this saddle is without question the best farkle I have ever spent my hard earned $$ on. Thank you so much for rescuing my backside. I have owned Corbin, Sargent and Mustang, all good seats but really there is no contest."
"Having researched at length the "custom" motorcycle seat market, I had high expectations when I recently ordered my Russell Day-Long saddle. I am pleased to report that your saddle has exceeded my expectations! At 6'5" and 270 pounds, motorcycle seats have always been the weakest link in my attempts as comfort; however the fit, comfort, and quality of your-my Day-Long is superb!"

What Other's Are Saying About Our Saddles!
I just wanted to say thank you for the fine work you did on my seat. The seat is comfortable and looks good on the bike. I just completed a 2100+ mile trip from Amarillo, TX to Phoenix, AZ in comfort. The two longest days were about 418 miles. On one of those days, the trip took right at seven hours with two twenty minute fuel stops. I can honestly say, you can ride from fuel stop to fuel stop and then ride some more. I definitely would recommend the day-long seat to anyone who is looking for comfort.
Just wanted to let you know I got the seat. Just got it on the bike and it fits great!!!!! It looks great, need to get it in the sunlight to really appreciate it! The smuggler fits with it too and that was a worry but am at ease now.

I just recieved my Russell sport saddle, and I'm thrilled with the quality and fit. I have only had time for a short ride, but it seems that your staff has fit me corectly. I will spend more time in the next few weeks to try to get it "broken in", but I think it is great. Thanks to all who worked on it, and the quality is MUCH better than the Bill Mayer that it replaces!!!
Thanks, Mike Igou Ser. NO 0510-21922
Janie and I rode up from Los Angeles in April to have a seat built.
The difference between the stock seat on the Goldwing and your seats is just amazing. On the way home to Los Angeles from Bend OR after getting the seats done we did 900 mile days and could have gone farther but for the weather. We are looking forward to many cross country trips.
Your staff is not only talented craftsman but great people. The office staff where very helpful recommending places to eat and things to see while the seats were being done The loaner gold wing seat made it possible for us to do some sightseeing while in Shasta. Heck you guys even solved a problem with my riding pants for which I'm very grateful saved spending a bunch on cloths vs. trips lol.
All in all it's the best thing we've done to the bike since buying it and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Thank you! Al Foitag and Janie Amen - Sun Valley, CA
I sent you guys an email in January about my new Russell Seat - this was my 3rd seat in the last 12 years. I mentioned I felt this seat was very uncomfortable just sitting on it 10 minutes in the garage-could not ride due to Winter- and that I felt it to be very hard compared to previous Russell seats...I said I would reserve final judgement till I could put some miles on it this Spring-in other words, I was very hesitant about the seat and worried as I was riding to Alaska this Summer...well, 4,000 miles later I am happy to report I was wrong and the seat is great for 1000 mile days and has not given me a bad day -- keep up the great work.
Sincerely. Ted Panhuis
Hi everyone at Russell Cycle Products, I just want to say thank you. I just got back from a 425 mile ride that was beautiful country roads, riding 2 up all day and was very comfortable. I must say that when I ordered the seat I was skeptical. I was very happy with the other guys saddle system and my wife wanted it. I would not trade for 3 of the other brand. I could not have been more comfortable and the wife is more pleased with my decision.
Thanks. Patrick Ruddy, Sr.
I was your ride-in appointment on July 27 (2005 Black/Silver Kawasaki 1600 Nomad). Besides the 244 mile ride home from the appointment, my wife and I went on a 3 day 677 mile ride the next weekend. We both love the seat! I led the 677 mile ride and at 100 miles I'd pull over for a break. People were asking for a break at 90 miles because of uncomfortable seats, but my wife and I could have gone much more..limited only by gas fillups! I'm so glad I had her seat done too.
I wanted to tell you how happy I am with my dual seat. You made it for me last March and as soon as I got it, I rode from Chicago to Arizona (3900 miles round trip), as a break in ride. It was great! I was riding up to 700 miles a day in comfort the whole time. I could not believe how comfortable it was. With my factory seat I was only able to go about 70 miles at a time, and with your seat I only stopped for fuel...about 120 miles and still no butt pain. Great job and Thank You very much!
I would like everyone there to know how much I enoyed my Ride-In seat replacement experience. Russell does business the way it should be done. All the people I came in contact with treated me like I was a V.I.P. I could not ask for a better seat, it is amazing! It was also fun telling people it was made just for my butt.
Y'all made for me a charcoal gray seat this past March for my 2006 Honda Shadow Sabre. Its a wonderful seat and my wife April is escpecially appreciative of the lower backrest y'all made to fit the Givi trunk bag. We've taken one long ride (100 miles), and April , who has never ridden more than 15 minutes without complaining , was very comfy and wanted to spend the entire weekend riding around Austin. I must say that I am in love with the seat as much as anything else on the bike.
Thank You! David, TX

James and Carolyn Peacock
This seat is awesome!!, it really is a "Day-Long" seat...I can now ride all day and still be comfortable at days end. Thank you for giving me the ability to ride pain free once again
Sincerely, Bob Cary
Wow my Multistrada is now an incredibly comfortable touring bike. With the Day-Long saddle, as you advised, I now sit higher, but this is OK with my long legs (34” inseam). The higher seating position increases the wind blast, so Ducati’s taller “Maximum Protection” windscreen (only $135) was a necessary option. With this new screen, I am out of the wind to about the top of my chest, while my helmet rides in perfectly smooth air. This setup is absolutely perfect for a taller rider like me.
Thanks, Tom Arden
I recently purchased a Russell saddel for my BMW Adventure sidecar outfit. I am handicapped, and find stock saddles unmercifully painful. I have purchased used bikes with Russell saddles in the past, but this was my first new saddle. Your Customer Service Representative was very friendly and helpful, and when my saddle arrived, I was extremely satisfied. Sinse the saddle was installed, I have ridden over 5,000 pain-free miles in excellent comfort, and my saddle has exceeded my expectations in every way. There is no way I can Thank You enough for providing me with a means to continue riding, rather than quitting all together. My saddle ended the severe pain when I ride, and is comparable to riding in an armchair. Every mile I ride is a testamnet to the quality, manufacture, and your efforts to fulfill this customer's special requirements.

Thank you so much for getting my seat to me in time for my Alps tour this past May. A few of my friends thought I was foolish for spending big bucks on a seat for a 2 week tour on a rental bike. But I knew better. Day after days, some as long as 12 hours, your seat was exremely comfortable. The truth is for the first few days I didn't even notice how comfortable it was, not until other riders on the tour started complaining about their sore butts at the end of long days in the mountains. My butt hadn't even crossed my mind. What better compliment can I pay. Now I am back home in Maryland, riding my Honda instead of a rented BMW F650. I intend to recreate the same riding position on the Honda with one of other seats you have made for me and then enjoy lots of comfortable miles.

I just wanted to thank you for the excellent work on my BMW R1150GS seat.The craftsmanship is perfect, the looks alone are awesome! I just went out on a 300 mile ride and even without the full break in, this is 101 percent better than my stock seat.This has been the best purchase on my bike yet! I thank you & my backside thanks you!
Conrad in Santa Monica
To the staff,
Thank you for the great service. We have put 2000 miles on the new seat and it's breaking in nicely. It is really a pleasure to do business with a company that is truly geared to customer service and stands behind their product. You folks are really a breath of fresh air.
Best regards, Dave and Cindy Bickle
For a long time, long rides were spent only thinking of when it was going to be over and I could stand up. I tried aftermarket seats, gel pads, you name it, and nothing helped my sore behind. Then I found your web site. YOu had a diagram of my problem; all my weight concentrated on the tail bone. Well, long story short, thousands of miles later I'm going on longer and longer rides. Thanks so much for making riding fun again! The seat has over 10,000 miles on it and still feels great.
I received my "Day-Long" seat for my FJR at the end of last October. Living in MInnesota, I was only able to put on 100 miles before the winter hit. My wife and I have been riding a lot this spring and we both absolutely love your seat! It truly is a "Day-Long" seat. I have been riding for 43 years and have to tell you that I will never own another bike without a Russell Seat on it. It's my first, but won't be my last.
Abe Mathews, Minnesota
It has been awhile now. I really LOVE the seats! You guys have done a really good job, the service was superb. The colors are fine, even though you seemed skeptical...Yellow and Blue works for me!
Well I just spent 5 plus hours riding back to Lake Tahoe from your shop. I got to say, your seat is the best thing to happen to biking! My butt feels great and I am very impressed with the comfort your seat afforded us. My whole body aches from riding so much, but my tush is in A1 shape. Keep up the great work. I will send an email reminding you of my XL shirt. I want everyone to know about the comfort of your seat. Well, time to hit the sack, work is at 6:00am tomorrow.
Russ and Marianne Potts - North Lake Tahoe, CA
We recieved our new Day-Long seats this spring for our BMW R1100RT. We were not able to get the break in period in before we headed out on a 2 week vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip down the Blue Ridge Parkway, which most certainly would not have been the case on the factory seats.
Thank you! Tom and Sherri Hawkins
Good Morning, It's been a week now and I'd like to thank everyone involved at Russell for my outstanding new seat. I've never had the experience of returning home after a long ride feeling as comfortable as when I left! The seat works as advertised and is a revelation. I'd especially like to thank...Mike (The Seatbuilder) - for actually building such an excellent seat and getting it "just right"!
I can't say enough good things about this new seat and the friendly, helpful staff at Russell. Thanks again and I'll be sure to stop by on my next ride up that way.
Cheers. Dennis Kohke
