My wife just came back from Iraq on R&R and ordered a seat for my 2006 Katana as an early Christmas Present. I must say at first glance it looks like a beautiful work of art. Please extend my thanks and praise for all those involved in the design of this saddle for this model bike. At first I was a little disappointed when I sat on it and the edges caused a lot of pressure on the inside of my legs. Then I put my feet on the pegs and fell in love with the saddle. Since my model is a Black w/ Silver paint scheme and the saddle was the high gloss carbon fiber black leather and silver carbon fiber welts, it really makes my bike look new again. I can't wait to ride it to work tomorrow and show off your beautiful product to my office. Thanks again for giving me another reason to ride. Your product is great, shipping was fast, seat well packed, and perfectly engineered for my size. You have made a customer for life. I wish all of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
