It is actually an ebay seat/foam combo, size tall. It feels a lot better than the stock slab it came with.

Next up, I'm going to replace the headlight with something that throws out more light than a cigarette lighter that is low on butane. I can't believe how bad it is.
THat looks a lot like the one I had, which Ted had promptly knicknamed Barney.

He Than, now that you got your DS bike, time to start looking for that adventurous road bike. A bike thats built for speed and comfort for those long haul road trips. A bike that just oozes style and class, one that is sure to draw a crowd wherever you go. A bike that it would take a real man to ride. One that wherever you go other bikers, be they dirt riders or pirates would be sure to point out and say to their friends, "Look at that!!!"

I give you Than's next great adventure-mobile:

Sweet! I don't think I've ever seen a blue Dream? You'll get more looks on that than a fleet of pirate ships. Those bags scream out...ROAD TRIP!

Anyone watching moto-x at Red Bud this afternoon? I'm sitting here watching it live on NBC for free. $40 at the gate. What a rip!

Sounds about right. Built for comfort not speed, much like me.

. Now now, that KLR did take you on many an adventure and return you home in one piece. Lets show some love to the reliable but ugly KLR.

The KLR is the PC800 of DS bikes.

I'll be moving from Sheboygan Wi to GR in a couple of months, thinking about going over the top on my 2002 Silver Wing. I'll need to make a stop in Antigo so my son can put new tires and a belt on the bike. He's worried I won't be able to handle the grating on the Mackinac bridge. I've put more than 20k miles on it riding in all weather (above 40 degrees that is; I'm crazy but not stupid). Thoughts?

People makes the grates out to be a much bigger deal than they are. Its a little unnerving at first because the bike shuffles a little under you, but it's no big deal. You'll be fine.

Ah, I kid. I love that bike. I learned how to ride off road on it, first long trip, etc.

No problem. Just don't spend much time looking down at the water. You could just ride in the paved lane?
