Saddlesore and Bun Burner

I've done two IBA rides, a Saddlesore and a Bun Burner on my F800GS, and both on the stock seat. No problem at all. Go for it!

Interesting. I live in Oregon, where, believe me, we get plenty of rain. And I also lived in Switzerland for 7 years, so I can make a fair comparison of the climate. But I've been running K60s on my...

Thanks for the pix, Geek. Those are done, and that's pretty poor mileage (or rather, kilometerage). I was thinking of trying those as my next tires, but I think I may have to reconsider. I can't see...

I agree with the others here. Leave the scratched stuff on the bike. Then there's less stuff to fret over the next time you dump it.

And if you ride like I do, there will be several next times.

I'd say ~30%. But I'm a bit of plodder off pavement, and don't ride on the ragged edge of a tire's capability. In any case, dirt, sand, mud, and snow, the K60 has never given me a scare. I may give...

I'm now on my fourth 140/80/17. I prefer it to the 150, especially off pavement. No problems. But I gather that the 130 doesn't fit the rim well.

It's a Pelican Storm Case iM2200, mounted to the Touratech plate with some round-head hex bolts and fender washers. Easy to remove, though I very rarely do.

It's physics, and (at least in our universe) not subject to opinion. :D

The center of gravity (or mass) gets lowered because your mass is attached to the bike's mass at a lower point. Simple.

50K miles
