I am sure the nut can be cracked but they sure would have made it easier with a side gas fill and a one piece seat. Dang 'em!
Hopefully if enough of us complain about the seat, maybe we can Get a Russell day long made for it!
I just bought a Michelin Commander 2 for my GL1200 and its supposed to last 24,000 miles.
I want a long lasting set of tires for the NC also.
