It's amazing how seats and ergos are such a personal thing. I really like the seat.

Yes....it does seem amazing.  My butt still hurt hours after getting off the bike. A number of times I found myself either standing on the foot pegs while rolling or slightly lifting myself off the bike at stops. The lunch and petrol breaks were welcomed.  The roads, scenery and scents of the rolling green farm fields almost made me forget about my arse.  I put about 280 miles or so on the bike. The Mississippi River Valley/Lake Pepin area between Minnesota and Wisconsin is just outstanding. A good mix of tight twisty roads, long sweeping curves, a few long straightaways. I found some sweet new roads too.

There's a Ducati Performance Comfort Seat for sale on DMF that sounds like a fair buy @ $200+ shipping but I have no idea if it'll fit my 1100 Evil ~ Evil:

I looked around the internet and the best price for the Sargent seat would run about $500 w/shipping.

Looks like an earlier gen seat. What does the dealer have for 696, 796,1100, Evo? I'm thinking DP comfort seat 96766909B.
Cost less than a Sargent?

Thanks for the heads-up on fitment.  I'll check with a dealer and see what they have. 

So does the same seat will work for a 696, 796, 1100 and Evo models? [#96766909B]

The DP book  for 2011 says 696, 796, 1100/S. I know the 696 seat fits an Evo.

Cool. Thank you as always.  I sent an email to 1 dealer in Nebraska to see what they might have. I'm going to reach out another on the east coast.

Thank you koko64!!!.  I've reached out but he has a sale pending.  Ducati of Omaha and AMS in Dallas both had nothing to offer.

I found a Sargent seat that will fit. It's in good nick and at a fair price.  My concern is that it's the lower seat height model: lower height = less padding = less comfort?   My 900 has a standard height Sargent and is just grand.

Anyone have a lower height Sargent experience?

The Sargent Low Seat uses 1 inch less padding.     Undecided

I wondered about the 'low' seats... it's not like there's a whole lot of fluff built into it in the first place... and you ain't moving those frame members.

I think I snagged the Ducati Performance Comfort seat off of Facebook.  It should be here by the 16th. [thanks koko!   applause]   I have a Dynojet Optimizer on order as well, from Italy.  Hopefully the installation will help with the lower RPM roughness, back-firing and maybe a be a bit quicker out of the gate.

I found an open-box Givi small-size tank bag and mounting rings for a fair price and, wow, is it nice to get at least a bit of storage on the bike.

I was SO tired of carrying my opera glasses and harmonica collection around in my pockets.
