You missed out on MMM. It was pretty cool. Was definitely cold, but rain cleared out before riding on Saturday and by the time I left on Sunday, was just cold. Hope more of you wankers make it up next year...

Looks like it was a great time. We did not have this on our Radar until too late..that said this group of wankers would have still bailed on the weather prediction I wanted to get up and see Dan and them as I know they do it right...Glad to see you had a good time and made the trip.

Seat Question

I have a 2012 GS with a stock seat. I'm 6'4 260 lbs and finding myself continually adjusting myself during a ride due to my privates going numb. I'm thinking about trying a Russell Day Long Saddle but wanted to check to see if anyone else has experienced this problem and what options they did to correct it

While I have not experienced the same issue, I felt like I was constantly sliding forward on the stock seat. The seat has adjustable bars underneath to raise or lower. What I did was lower the back of the seat and raise the bar in the front. This has me sitting it what I feel to be a level state, making the ride comfortable to me and now I am not constantly having to adjust position. Mine is a 2007, so I am assuming the seat is the same..may not be.

Good Luck.

Diff rides have different demands & so to diff riders

This may sound like an unrelated issue but when I replaced the stock foot, stupid slippery rubber & went to SS, three ribbed, cleetted 2.5'' wide off road pegs. My feet were very much planted & I was pushing down more & felt less sliding on the seat.
I could tell in the first few days my legs getting a bit of a work out & yes my package was less friendly on the seat.

It was control from the feet & from the hands.

I rode a GS w/ the factory lowered saddle. Being 5'4'' & well less than 150, my riding issues are different from 200+ & 6'+. However keeping my ass from resting on the seat while off the pavement is healthier for me over all.

But you may need a change in pegs to get a grip.
