Plus I swapped out my Renazco for a stock 990 seat for the day. I like the stock seat better, mainly because its about 3" lower and I can actually touch the ground!
If you want to sell the Ranazco let me know. I just got on the list for a mid September delivery. I want to add about 3".

If I can find a suitable replacement, I will probably sell it. Its really too tall for me to use.

Touratech has seat options. They are quite spendy but heard decent things about them.

I'm still running my stock Adventure seat, getting close to 40K miles.

It was raining and I probably should have been riding but ...

... I installed some stuff on the big, white Easter Bunny in my garage.

GPS Mount - RAM EZ-Strap
I wouldn't call it so much of an install as a fitment check. It was easy.







Topcase - Pelican 1450








G2 Throttle Cam (G2-40-300)
Currently running the K300 cam. Haven't gotten a chance to check it out much yet.



Next up is side-stand relocation, side bags, rotopax, auxiliary fan and... add more dirt.

Gave it some TLC: checking valves, checking clutch, greasing swingarm bearings and steering stem bearings, cleaning oil jet (was necessary!), changing the filters and the spark plugs and installing a HID conversion and 19-17" combo.

Started taking it apart to locate a sudden oil leak and looks like the front cylinder's valve cover gasket came out.






Dunno why that happened. I was just minding my own business and doing this when started smelling oil.

Sure On packed snow the grip is good and consistent so even a n00b like me can drive.
