merge?

I know several from OZ and from the Rockies - similar mindsets and attitudes. Let's merge so we can cover the 24 hours in prime-time. Maybe even form our own site. Who needs the others??

I too have had both on a DL650. The Sargent is lighter and more comfortable. I also bought the sheepskin cover, but I rarely use it since the Sargent is quite comfortable by itself.

keep levers "loose" can prevent breakage/bending

trials riders keep the bolts on levers somewhat loose so when the bike goes down, the levers rotate around the handlebar rather than break. Admittedly, this procedure is good for speeds < 5 mph, but...
