I would still need to get hold of the bike.
Data point, I had the Harley Sundowner seat with backrest on my FLHX Street Glide, it was very comfortable. Longest day was 860mi in about 12hrs, very comfortable. In fact, a well set up FL series Harley is a very comfortable mile eater.
That looks like the seat Laurie has on her Street Glide. The Harley dealer has a bunch of different demo seats you can try, I might do that one day to see what I think.
New motorcycle rant.... Motorcyclists took over my "Motorcycle rant" thread.
Its the Standard Touring Solo with removable backrest https://www.mustangseats.com/produc...-roll&parttype=solo-seat-with-driver-backrest
I've got a 2018 Harley Softail Slim and the stock Tuck and Roll saddle was horrible.
As one of my good riding friends says, "It's all good!". That's her response, even when we just rode 4hrs in the rain lol.
yup. The stock seat on my Honda was H O R R I B L E - you could use it to tortue information out of anyone. Got a Mustang and it didn't fit quite right. A replaced it with a Corbin seat ....awesome
I've had good luck with Sargent seats on the last two bikes. Well made, comfortable, but I'm not super picky. I usually can get 10-15kmi out of stock seats until they've degraded enough to bother me comfort wise.
Sargent is another option to look at, @Ted DuPuis .
I had a Corbin seat in on the Death Machine, it made a big difference. And, after I sold the bike I sold the seat for exactly what I paid for it. Sold the solo cowl too.
I think I'm going to do a nice ride around the block Saturday, a twisty road or two in there:
Man, I miss rides like that... a lot. That's the kind of stuff we used to do in PA almost every day when we lived there pre-kids.
Stuck in Gridland
Love ya too, Ed!
Yeah, it takes all day to get to roads really worth riding. I should take a few days off and go ride/camp WV.
Yeah, yeah, rub it in.
Been much too long since I did that route. I think the run to Fontana Dam May be my favorite part, but it’s all good.
This was last year's vacation ride. Was a tad more than 12,000 miles.
Do those little circles represent bathroom stops?
Haha.... Nah. This was created using a SPOT device and spotwalla.com. Bathroom stops are few and far between when riding in endurance rallies.
Of course. I don't know why I was thinking San Jose, when Vallejo would have been correct. And to think that I worked at MINSY for over 4 years (well, one year for the yard in Nuc and 3+ years at NAVELEX VJO, right by the causeway). I was there a little earlier than you, 1975-1979.
Did a job at NAVCOMMSTA Stockton while working at NAVELEX VJO, as well.
Well I think you just added 10mph to my standard deviation...........can agree with some of your stuff........going below speed limit in SoCal is a real death wish......we go above the speed limit for a good reason, we want to see the road in front of us to avoid mattresses-boards-axles-mufflers on the road......also to see traffic clearly......if you watch the CHP in Kalee they are always 10mph above traffic and moving on through. Agree on sitting in blind spot which I avoid like the plague, another death wish. I've been one of those "parade pirates" which I think is another name for the Patriot Guard, if you have no regard for our fallen military and first responders well that's on you........I don't bitch about cages just expect the usual and move on, no fingering or horn honking from me not even a dirty look......gotta keep eyes forward......also one more thing on Guard rides a lot of the bikes are running big flags and you can't imagine the drag from a 3x5 flag on a bike so we kinda have to go slow......usually no more than 60 with a big flag............
Apologies in advance for all the vertical videos in here. Were I King, an unwarranted vertical video would be grounds for immediate beheading.
Like most other things in life, motorcycling is much safer if you’re not stupid.
The one that immediately burst into flames made me lol!
As an aside, Karen went to our DMV and passed the written motorcycle test first try, missing only one question.
She thinks it was a confusing one about countersteering - which admittedly can be pretty counterintuitive.
We had expected, like in Georgia, for her to walk out with a learner’s “permit” so we could ride together and practice. Unfortunately, there’s no such thing in Tennessee other than a special case one for 15-year-olds. So we’ll mainly practice on our property and runway.
Anyway went for a celebratory 20-mile ride on the Buell - me piloting of course.
Pretty sure she’ll take the road test on her little Zuma 125, the maybe graduate to my TW200.
Eddie, you skinflint. Can’t you buy that woman some new jeans instead of making her wear those things with holes in them?
Come to think of it, she has been pretty good recently. Maybe it is time to up her clothing allowance!
As an avid rider, I'll respond to these one by one. Judging by your post you don't ride, so telling a motorcyclist what to do when riding their bike is the equivalent of your non-pilot friends telling you how to fly. You're not gonna agree with me, so don't ban me bro.
