I knew that it was expensive but that's robbery! It's pretty darn expensive even without a room. I'm with you, I'll make the drive. I actually like Route 9 (the air line) to Calais and a couple of...

Has anybody received a seat from Sargent yet for their 2013-2014 GS? Sargent claims that they are building the seats and shipping them but I'm still on hold after several weeks.

The stock seat on my 2014 GS is terrible. I did a 150 mile ride today and was extremely sore at the end. I sure do miss the Sargent seat that I has on my old GS.

Like somebody already mentioned, the ferry gives us an option. It makes sense to some, not to others. I'll be looking forward to reports in the future but I don't that I'll ever use the service.
