2004-2012 R1200GS (Oil-head) Adventure Track Low Solo Seat & Pillion

2004-2012 R1200GS (Oil-head) Adventure Track Low Solo Seat & Pillion

 

The  Adventure TRACK seat is a hybrid design that combines Saddlemen’s® exclusive  elements of a GEL comfort layer and progressive density foam with our patented  GEL-Channel saddle design that delivers unparalleled comfort and control.  Designed using advanced engineering, this family of seats is for the active and  discriminating adventure rider. Each seat contains features that complement the  motorcycle, in several cases overcoming the original seats’ design challenges:
Cover:
The waterproof WP-suede cover over the rider’s cockpit provides the proper amount of grip - an attribute that is essential when the road ahead turns rough. The passenger section (and some of the seats for the mid-sized dual sports) is covered with a tough grippy material that also keeps things in place and is supple to the touch. All of Saddlemen’s® marine-grade covers are unfazed by the elements, detergents or fuel. Water simply wipes away from the center section with a brush of your hand and the cover dries quickly.
Foam & GEL:
Saddlemen’s® GEL technology resides in each seat and each inch of it exceeds the comfort of  three inches of conventional foam. Our progressive density, closed cell foam never absorbs water and has been carefully sculpted and tested for maximum riding performance.
Foundation (Pan, Brackets & More):
Each Adventure TRACK seat is designed to fit better that a stock seat because it is constructed on strong, gel-coated fiberglass pan with plated steel brackets for a superb fit. Our motto of “fitting better than stock” is apparent each time you mount the seat. If you’re going on an adventure, your seat can’t let you down.
Easy to take extra cargo:
Because each riding mission needs flexibility, we’ve designed in integrated bag or cargo mounting points on the pillion seat that link up with our Adventure PACK luggage and other tail bags. We’ve added a gripper top cover to the pillion section of  the seat to aid in keeping your pack or passenger in place during your adventure.
But wait, there’s more – solo options:
If you have a bike with a two-piece seat there are some applications with a rider’s solo seat option. This is a great choice to rider’s taking on their big ride alone and need to maximize the storage space where the passenger normally resides. And each Saddlemen® Adventure TRACK solo fits perfectly with the stock passenger seat in place too.

These  Adventure TRACK features make sure that these seats are a vital accessory for the discriminating to use when circumnavigating the globe.

General  Information

Hybrid seat design combines SaddleGel interior, progressive density foam, and a Gel Channel saddle to provide Adventure and Dual Sport riders with unparalleled comfort and control.

Saddlemen’s® Gel Channel (GC) technology (patent pending) seats incorporate a split piece of SaddleGel and a channel in the base foam to relieve seating pressure on the perineal area, increase blood flow, thus keeping the rider in the saddle longer.

Gel Channel seats offer high quality, durable construction and styling that’s as unique as it is functional.

The vinyl and rugged micro-fiber suede cover holds up to hard use while providing a superb blend of comfort and control (certain models feature a rugged gripper style cover).

Some seat applications, such as mid-sized Dual Sport motorcycles, have a standard foam design (no GC)  with a gripper and vinyl cover better suited to rigorous riding.

Integrated bag/cargo mounting points on the pillion portion of the Adventure-class seat sets make it easy to attach Saddlemen’s® Adventure PACK luggage or other cargo.

Most mid-sized Dual Sport applications also include a luggage/cargo mounting strap set that installs or removes in seconds from the seat.

Specific Information

Driver’s seat features lower-profile foam that reduced seat height an addition 1.25” as compared to the standard BMW seat.

Still retains driver’s seat height adjustment feature

Front seat adjusts not only in height, but can pitch forward or back for increased rider comfort

Rugged, cad-plate steel mounting hardware on both the driver and passenger seats are stronger than the original seats’ plastic mounting tabs

Gel-coated, marine grade fiberglass pans withstands the rigors of hard use

Driver’s seat height mimics the original seat, but with a wider rear saddle for comfort and a specially shaped nose that further aids the rider touching the ground at stops.

Driver seat micro-fiber cover provides great balance between grip n’ slip for confinement control on or off-road.

Water wipes away from front seat and center GEL channel: dries in minutes.

Large GEL pads in front and rear seats add extra comfort and act as a vibration damper during rough riding

Rear seat features a thicker, progressive density foam base and GEL for passenger comfort.

The ideal cover for a motorcycle must exhibit many features, and Saddlemen utilizes the best material, Saddlehyde™, which provides the optimum combination of good looks, comfort and durability. First, Saddlehyde™, has a luxurious look and feel due to its leather grain and soft touch feel. Second, Saddlehyde™ has a built in compliance, or stretch, that enhances the gel and foam characteristics for increased comfort. Many other materials, including many leathers, are more board like and prevent the foam or gel from doing their job of softening your ride. Third, motorcycle seats are exposed to some of the worst conditions imaginable; bright sun, heat, rain and constant flexing, conditions that ruin the looks and durability of ordinary materials. Saddlehyde™ excels in these conditions and constant application of conditioners is not required.


Our unique Co-mold process is the largest comfort advancement in motorcycle seating since the creation of the suspension.

The Cushion Layer

The top sculpted layer is the sensory layer. It cushions and provides that nice soft touch.

The Absorption Layer

The middle layer isolates vibration, absorbs and dampens shock, disperses the pressure and promotes blood flow which alleviates hot spots created by foam only seating solutions.

The Support Layer

The bottom layer “the shell” is the stability layer. The polyurethane substructure completes the seating foundation to provide a truly unique riding experience.


Scientifically proven, this amazing product will increase the amount of time you spend on your motorcycle. A seat made with SaddleGel is scientifically engineered to dampen, divert and deflect the energy from road shock which air bladders and 70 year old foam only seat technology cannot protect you from.

Our SaddleGel has the ability to conform to all body shapes, sizes, and contours to reduce pressure points and promote blood flow which minimizes “hot spots “associated the pain and discomfort.

Otherwise, pressure points or “hot spots” can hinder blood flow, causing pain and discomfort. Normal circulation is never lost on a seat with SaddleGel and it keeps you comfortable on a long ride.


Whether it's a football helmet, hospital bed, knee pad or body armor, the foam it contains plays a critical role in making that product both comfortable and safe. But can that foam be transformed into something significantly better, safer and more comfortable?

Foam only seating dates back to the 1940’s. Still after 70 years many motorcycle seating manufactures solely rely on this low cost solution ignoring the advancements in technology.

Years of study, combined with practical experience, has led to the formulation of Saddlemen’s Progressive Density Foam. The chemical make-up and raw material volume is carefully tuned to create a foam pour that is balanced between support and compliance. Varied cell sizes and types are encapsulated in the foam by an element-resistant skin that seals the foam from water and enhances the seat’s durability as well as comfort.

To complete the process then tunes the density and shape which are also necessary to provide the superior foundation for Saddlemen’s unique co-molding process that optimizes reduction is vibrations and shock directly related to rider fatigue.


Unlike most foam that has open holes at the surface, Saddlemen’s Profoam actually has an abrasion resistant skin that resists water intrusion. This barrier is engineered to form during the molding process and protects the micro cellular foam core from breaking down, which is common with many OEM and aftermarket seats.


A Saddlemen split cushion seat is divided into separate flat seat support and backrest platforms. Saddlemen separates and divides the seat into two functions; one a vertical surface for back support and the other a horizontal platform to softly support the butt. The flat portion permits the rider to sink into and comfortably float upon the SaddleGel filled seat while the lumbar rest provides support unaffected by the compression caused as the rider settles into position. On conventional seats, any rider depression of the flat platform pulls the lumbar portion of the seat forward and cramps the rider’s position, often resulting in a condition fondly known as a “wedgie.” The Saddlemen split cushion prevents this and provides comfort – mile after mile.
