Its easy enough on dirt bikes but theres big mud holes, rock strewn stretches and cambered sections. There is also a lot of oblivious ATV traffic. I'd skip it if I were you on those bikes.

Well, it is the cheapest replacement seat and it is Much softer. AN Airhawk would probably have a slightly better cost/benefit since your legs aren't feeling all knotted up.

Luggage for Sertao

the rainier bag from Wolfman will stand up better on the tank then the expedition lite which is floppy. The Wolfman tailbag is a perfect fit and really gets the job done. Have fun it looks great.
