Russell all-day touring saddle with adjustable backrest, ordered for my 2012 DL650...dealer tells me will fit any 2012-2019, check with your parts guy to confirm...just sold the bike with 4,900 miles on it, this seat was on the bike for about half those miles...
has all possible options, i ordered it new...cost new was $920, first $375 plus shipping buys it.
I could lose 10 pounds on my Kt 250.Mainly up high and to the rear of the bike.Rolling it around and leaning it over on the shop floor 10 pounds is easily noticed.Would it matter when riding? Or would it be worth the trouble?

Anyone done it? Considering these as a tire for my SV when the stockers wear out. Not that it'll see off road (not that these are really an off road tire) but more longevity and crappy pavement.
Bike is a 1997 R1100GS with 170'000km I've had for about a year now (changed original brake lines on it so assuming not a lot of love had been put in it).
Started off with a slipping clutch on high revs and turned into no response in clutch lever a few kms further. Riding through a dodgy road with no service I soldiered on with the more and more slipping clutch (no slips in previous rides) to get to civilization.
A smoky roll to the end with what seemed to be a leaking rear main seal...
and I've learned that I can't route with this software, using OSM data (they're supposedly routable maps).
So my question is, Will the Montana, with Open Street Maps, use them to create a route between waypoints? I've got Garmin North America 2020.1 NT so I'm good till I hit Guatemala. I've got OSM covering the rest of my trip to/into Colombia and Ecuador.

Hey all, I have a week off and want to spend some of it - probably about 3-4 days - exploring Big Sur (probably after taking Highway 1 down from the Bay Area). Thought I would see if anyone was interested in joining me for some or all of it. I'm pretty flexible about which days between 3/21 and 3/31 it takes place on.
I'll be riding a KLR 650. The plan is to explore the Coast Ridge Trail and camp along that while I'm down there. Does anyone know how important it is to camp in a designated...
Suddenly my 1100gs (98) is running very bad and starts difficult.
Thought it was the HES, so I replaced it. But it didn't help.
Maybe you guys have any suggestions before I keep buying and replacing parts..
Actually was looking for a “show us your latest car purchase” thread where I could post a pic or two of my new to me car (cos I’m pretty chuffed with it! ) but then I thought maybe we could have a thread of cars that are understated and/or underrated but actually are awesome!
So here it is

Hey there, anyone have any good advice on how to seek out or start a riding group/club for adventure bike riders? I live in Oregon and ride with a couple friends with adventure bikes but mostly find myself riding with Harley riding friends as they are more common. I have for a long time been interested in finding an existing group of adventure riders, or even starting a new group somehow but not quite sure how to go about either of those two options. Any advice or info on this topic would be...
I want to start doing a bit of adventure riding and touring with the bike, but I am looking for a bike that I can also use as a daily commuter that is not too expensive but is still good value for money. Any suggestions?
A long while back I had this idea of having a bbq plate/luggage rack, as part of a well equipped touring/camping RS.
Not much happened after I had the idea.
But 18 months ago while camping on the bank of my favorite trout stream, I found a rectangular pot/pan rack and a circular grill, quite a distance apart. Serendipity! It couldn't get any easier for a metal worker.
I knew exactly where they were going.
Fantastic motorcycle. Recent annual service including, engine oil change, transmission oil change, final drive oil change, drive shaft splines lubed, new alternator belt, new battery, new rear tire, new rear brakes, new air filter. Heated grips and 12v outlet.
54,213 miles. The only thing this bike needs is to recover the seat or an aftermarket seat.
Will consider some kind of deal on a 955i Triumph...
Last year I did the hammock. This year I'm going with a tent.
Looking to get the low down on what everyone is using for a sleep pad. Right now all I have is a self inflated pad that is like 1/2" thick. Though it is long enough for my 6'4" frame, its really narrow. If I turn on my side, I roll off it. I can also feel the ground if I lay on my side. I would like something a bit thicker and wider; story of my life.
Self inflated? Air pad? There are those closed cell jobbies, but I can't see...
