Hi All,

FNG here. I own an '05 PX150, which I stole from a guy who didn't know what he was selling. Recently installed a Streamline Seats Curve Sport, and have a SIP Road 2.0 exhaust on order. I have owned the bike in stock form for 12+ years and have just started to customize it.

Bikes I have owned and sold: Aprilia Atlantic 200, HD Dyna SuperGlide, HD Night Rod, Honda VFR1200, KTM 690 Duke, KTM 350 XCFW, KDX200 (x2), Honda Metropolitan, Yamaha Virago, GPZ550.

The PX is the only bike that has stuck with me, won't leave me, and is the only two-wheeled motorized bike I own now. Totally happy with that! Wife has her own LXV 150 and a Honda Metro.

I look forward to learning more from the crew here, and sharing my experiences along the way.

Cheers!
Greg

Welcome to the party.

What do you think of the Streamline seat so far? Is it comfortable?
I think they look great.

I like the Streamline for it's killer looks, but it's not as comfortable as I had hoped it would be. I even had him use the thicker touring foam. It is more comfortable than the Ancilotti I had previously. To be fair, I have not been on a ride for more than 30 minutes yet. Time will tell how it is on longer rides. The Ancilotti started to hurt at about 30-40 minutes.
It is not compatible with a rear rack either, so now I am moving toward a front rack.
I am torn and curious about the new style PX seat, but it looks like a fixed seat position and probably is not any better than anything else.
