I agree whole heartedly. The Madstad works. End of story. It amazes me that it's only $300.00 and that more riders haven't discovered how well it works. I'm 6' 2" with a 34" inseam and it totally...

Sargent Enduro Saddle

Finally bit the bullet and ordered a new seat for the 800 GS. The Beemer Low seat wasn't terrible, but at 6'2" and a 34" inseam I was a bit cramped at times. Decided on the Sargent Enduro cause I...

Decided I needed a tool kit for my new 800gs so I loaded up my trusty Weimy and headed for Harbor Freight to assemble one of those $179.00 tool kits for a whole lot less than $179.00! After a quick...

Read this and thought I would try the bulbs first. This does not apply to HID lamps that are designed for HID. I just can't afford that type of lighting right now. This article is about the...
