Cobie......

They're a set of 100a superhard skateboard wheels connected together by hose covered threaded rod run through the axles......they act as axle sliders if you lay the bike down in the street/track.

Thanks for the advice.

I've got the TM40 carb, it's a beast. Great for aggressive riding.

Fairing fitted

Finally got around to fitting the new screen.




Decided to ditch all the standard lights, mounting brackets and hardware and start from scratch.




Cockpit view is a bit agricultural.






Low and high beam.







For what its worth this set up weighs 2kgs and the stock light and screen etc weighs 1.5kgs, give or take.

And before someone jumps in, no I don't think its ADR compliant. But what on my bike is?

Sargent low seat. It's nice and low, and very comfortable, but there's not a lot of foam on the pan so you feel more vibration than the stock seat. I have thought about getting a regular height seat with softer foam to get rid of the vibes.

Once I rode 200 miles in a day on the stock seat and it was terrible. Airhawk pad changed it all.

I don't mind the stock seat, still using it. I did add the cheapo Wally World seat cover though and that helps but I rode plenty of long day on just the stock seat with no complaints. We'll see how I feel after a 14 day trip this spring though, my feelings might change then.

With only perhaps a half a dozen aftermarket manufacturers, producing alternatives to the stock seat,
it's probably just some kind of misunderstanding.

You're typing from a sawhorse I believe...

I kept my stock seat a couple years when I was doing short DS rides mostly in western NC where I lived at the time.

Then I started doing 500 to 600 mile days three or more days at a time. The stock seat was fine for an hour at a time with standing mixed in. It was not good enough for 8 to 10 hour days though. With my wide corbin, I'm ready for whatever... Utah sounds nice in April....

Where can I get it, and how much does it cost?

I agree a fun bike should not be such a PITA to ride.
