I ordered the silloette LT series seat. It's is suppose to fit up over the tank of my 2002. I think it's close to the bare bones seat, I'll post some pic's when it comes in.

My '05 1200c with a LePera Silhoutte Solo LT which is similar to the bare bones. I love it. Got the biker gel in mine.

It's not, however, a long distance saddle. But I've done close to 100miles and it's not bad. And the look; well, . .

I was thinking about getting the bare bones seat but ended up getting the Silhouette Solo LT because it has a little more padding. I like the way it looks, follows the line of the tank perfect and ride very well.
