It does the same thing after disconnecting the battrery. A lap around the block sorted it out.

See, that was my problem!! A mate took the tank off his XC on the same weekend and his started up fully talking to the gauge.....mine didn't, so I assumed a problem....but all good. Thanks for the feedback.

I guess this post is about dirt. After viewing a few ride reports the missus has decided she wants to do a little camping during our Grand Canyon trip this fall. This is our set up.

A bug hut covered by an 8x10 silnylon tarp. Note: none of the hut sticks out from under the tarp. Even though the pics make it look that way. Another thing is we dont plan to tough it out in the rain. If the weather looks bad, a motelling we will go.

Looks nice, just about anything will do for fair weather. For me, I have a nice air mattress and sleeping bag, I use my clothes in a sack for pillows. I also have a three season tent in case I get caught out in it, but I'm with you about the hotel.

The seat came from where?

This is exactly what I'd like to do. Has anyone else tried this? Any suggestions how how it can be done easier than spending 10 hours on it?

The seat is a Rick Mayer http://www.rickmayercycle.com/

The normal price is $400 + shipping. Rick had a sale last winter 1/2 off on dual sports so my price was $200+. The price make my decision for me, but truly, the seat is so good I wouldnt hestitate to pay the full price. They always have sales in the winter but it may or may not be as good or apply to your particular scooter.

My turn around time was screwed up, at least partially my own fault. I shipped the seat just before Thanksgiving. The return was scheduled just before Christmass and I was going to be out of town. I told them to hold until after the Holidays. I think it was mid January before I got the seat back. I think the advertised turn around is a couple of weeks, but I wouldnt plan any big trips for at least three.

Rick Mayer Seats

That's a fine looking seat, looks very comfortable. I went over to their site - they are having a sale thru July 21 for the BMW rally, $50 off their regular price for everyone right now. From what I could tell it was $319 for a 'solo' seat - re-do the pilot and re-cover the passenger seat, vinyl covers, with $50 off. Not cheap but not horrendously expensive either. One of the best in the business me thinks.

You can also ride there with an appointment, the shop is near Redding CA, north of Sacramento, and they'll do your seat while you wait.

I am browsing around their site and I don't see a Tiger 800 listed in their seat list... Obviously they do them, cause the one above looks awesome!

True, the price I mentioned was for a "dual" seat. I do a lot of 2up so the dual was my only option. I find that if mama rides more often then so do I.

Mayer recommends the leather seats... EXCEPT if you bikes spends a lot of time in the sun and rain. And since I commute more days than not the bike sits out in the parking lot all days more days than not I went with the vinyl.
