I love this mural. I pass by it every now and then when I'm out for a ride. I was considering using it earlier.

Had a great ride to Dillard, GA yesterday with the love of my life. Ate lunch at Turner's Corner today on the way home. Now I'm sitting on my deck watching my kids swim and enjoy the first day of their summer vacation.

Me and my grandson had a hoot driving around the neighborhood yesterday. I was on the 50cc MB5 and he was on his mini bike with a 200cc engine. I still smoked him though. It was good bonding time!

I have been debating on upgrading my seat also. The big question is which seat?

this is the way i understand it.

corbin tends to be on the very firm side... sargent is softer. either is an improvement over stock.

unless i just have an iron butt, i have spent 4 hours straight in the saddle of my Corbin and not been uncomfortable.

I have a Corbin and it seems pretty good to me. Way better than stock.

B1pig, leaning toward the iron butt part of the equation in your case as well as mine.

BMW is known for torture seating, this is my 3rd Beemer, all stock seats with no issues. I would not know what a good seat feels like.

I have a Russell Day Long on my FJR -- and they mean day long too.
12 hours in the saddle, no worries.
