I have the Sargent seat on my 2012. The stock seat tended to push me forward against the tank and the boys didn't like that! Big improvement with the Sargent - looks great too.

Thanks, that is an Altrider rear rack with 1" spacers to clear the Sargent seat.

Is the "wobbling" I am experiencing a problem only with the Cal Scientific or with larger windshields in general? Does the larger Vstreams have the same issue?
