after market seat constructors in Europe?

Hallo all,
In the States there are a lot of possibilities to improve the seat of Your bike, Russel, Corbin, The mayer brothers and more but I cant find anything similar in Europe.:confused1:
I would love to know if such companies exist and if anyone can recomend someone?
I was looking to change the original seat of a wee strom for something similar to a Russel "day long" ?
Thanks,
Dan

The only one I know of: KAHEDO

I have read lots of good things about them, but have never used them personally. They make the tankbags that Touratech and another German co. sell, but you can't buy these off them.

Problem is they are in Germany and you probably want to try the seat before they cover it.

Hi,
if you live near Germany there is this:
Jungbluth Sitzbänke - Alles für'n Arsch

I heard good feedbacks and I am going to let them change my seat.

Cheers
Micael

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
