"Are you telling me even a $12,000 BMW has an uncomfortable seat..WTF.??"


No, I used them on my KTM dirt bikes....except when I took the seat off to beat a bent rim straight.

I have over 14k on my stock low seat, does that make me a numb ass?

After riding every Sunday on my KTM 450XCR-W it makes the F800GS seat feel like a living room couch ...

I was going through some photos and it was difficult to find a picture of my F800.....lots of pics of other bikes.
Photo was taken at an abandoned farm yard in southern Manitoba just north of the Canada US border. August 2009

Found another shot taken by Skysailor on our trip from Winnipeg to Ely MN. There is a ride report on the Northern Ontario Rally, for anyone interested.
Note the Karoos are retired for the season.

i've never bought a bike with a comfortable seat, besides a katana years ago- that had the dealer throw a corbin seat on it before it left the showroom.

Do you know how to find the BMW seat designer out of a lineup? Hit everyone in the ass with a 2 x 4, the guy that says "thank you", is him.

Tell me the bike with the more comfortable stock seat that can do the twisties and dirt as easy as the F800GS and I will eat my hat. It is rather sweaty and has never been washed, but the F800GS feels like a cloud compared to the other bikes i've ridden.

To keep with the theme I present these photos




2500 miles later close to home...


Never fear, I have more pics of my trip!

What kind of Yamaha is that? A Tenere?



Looks good, and clearly it's one we Yanks can't get our hands on.
