I have to disagree on the cotton pants as well...
I ran a 100 mile day on my Sherpa in jeans when I first got it. I had to stop at 75 miles, drop my pants and underwear for relief (was on remote logging roads, but probably would have blinded any passers-by). The jeans did absorb all of my sweat, and just kept it there. Frickin miserable.
Bought EVS armored underwear that has some kind of stretchy material that somehow keeps you dry, even while you sweat along with Klim pants. Tolerable... could do 200+ miles now.
Add Anti-Monkeybutt or Mexana powder and it gets better- much better.
Change seat to Seat Concepts... 600 miles, 1 day and could have kept going!
Their seat worked so well, got one for the 09 klr650 and the 09 klx250s as well. And I used to call the klx "my dominatrix" because all that stock seat did was try to KILL MY BUTT!!!!!
Seat Concepts transformed all 3 of these bikes. Worth the money! As is decent riding gear and corn starch and calamine based powders...
