I had Spencer do a seat for a KLR I had years ago. It worked very well. Also, much less $$$ than other options. I'd love to hear how he does with the NC.

Noted on the LEOs. I've hit bits and pieces of the Skyline/Blue Ridge in the past. Usually a fifty mile stretch here or there. Kind of a bucket list to ride the whole damn thing. Thanks for the tips.
