Thanks Bigbugberg ...
Also Maurizio ...
Clearly not a deafening round of applause for the KTM gel seat ...
The heat thing would be a problem here also no rattlesnakes, and our cacti are generally less flamboyant, but otherwise a fair bit in common with Arizona ...
Not much wrong with the 690, other than its awful stock seat no problems when the ride is broken up by tight stuff (standing), but misery over 300km or so of the hard fast dirt roads ...
Will keep sifting through the options for rectification pun not intended ...
