^^^ That beaded seat cover help? I've got a sheepskin, but I was thinking about maybe doubling them up.

Beads are quite good, maybe better than sheepskin in many conditions. I used to ride with beads, then put a sheepskin on top for a change of pace. Dunno what happens if you put beads over your sheepskin.

Not a great picture of my bike but the only one I have of it "packed".

First trip on my bike. 2 day 600 mile round trip to grandma's house and back. Never again will I carry 40 points of shit on my back! Buying bags for longer trip this summer and leaving the backpack at home. Also found out that my fuel range is at most 140 miles and my exhaust is WAY too loud. haha

Well I was going to put the beads down first. I've done some LONG day's on the stock saddle with just the long haired butt pad, but I think it could be better.

Middle of 11 day road trip...no hotels, all camping. M109R worked flawlessly. Quite the peg scrapper though.

Laugh BC2BC - 10 days, 3500 miles on a hardtail bobber

My favorite pic taken on my British Columbia to Baja California trip. Built the bike in the evenings and weekends the two weeks preceeding the trip. Had a great time!

True...the bikes do look overloaded but we were in reasonably remote places, camping for 3-4 days at a time with no stores or workshops close...so food ,water ,extra 10 litres of fuel, tent, sleeping bag, tools ,spares tubes, extra oil, a few clothes and there is no room left.
We also left home in the rain, and had to ride thru snow, and a week later it was 30 deg c so needed range of riding gear.
As a child I was a scout...be prepared
