Monkey Butt, Your Seat Time on a Dual Sport.

On my DR-Z i put 6-7,000 miles on it before it was stolen in under a year. Curious to hear how many miles you are able to put on a dual sport thumper in one day, in one weekend, on one trip before the pain sets in. Also is this drastically affected once you add a Seat Concepts, Corbin or other aftermarket seat.

400 in a day, all pavement. Some interstate, mostly back roads.

DRZ400 - 2hrs hurt, after 4 it was truly painful. Corbin made it to 4 and then started to get a tad uncomfortable. Waste of money.

KLX250S - 4hrs good, stock seat. Not sure yet if going to get different seat because I hate to sit down on a bike.

That monkey but bowder is awesome stuff. But the Beadrider seat overlay has made all the difference in the world for long hauls for me.

1500klm mixed highway and gravel on a standard 02 640 adventure.

1300klm of highway on a standard 91 DR650rs and standard KLX250.

And quite a few 1000klm days on various bikes.

I have never actually had Monkey butt. My ass just gets sore after a long haul with a bad seat. Which, being a KTM guy, I am quite familiar with.

That said, I have never had any issues with the Renazco seat on my 640. After 300 miles of hard riding mixed pavement and offroad it still feel like my couch.

With stock KTM seats my ass is generally sore by the end of my driveway to maybe around the block with Enduro Engineering replacements I have tried.

Meaning my next purchase for the 525 will be a Renazco seat just as soon as I figure out which seat/tank combo I want to run.

Haven't gotten a lot of seat time on my DRZ with Seat Concepts High seat yet, but comfort-wise it's a world of difference. My wife did a couple of 10-12 hour days on her KLX250SF with sargent seat. Mileage-wise it was probably nothing over 500 miles because we avoided highways, but we put in a lot of seat time.

I did Weipa to Mareeba and back, about 1400kms of which nearly 1000kms is gravel and some of it pretty nasty in 20 hours including sleeping in the dirt for 4 hours. Left at 2 in afternoon got back in 10 the next morning pretty shattered. Dodging roos on a DR - not fun.

Several hours with occasional stops just because. Clearly any seat gets painful. There are companies making "comfortable" seats for Gold Wing and BMW tourers.

It's all relative.

Could go several hundred km of mixed riding on the stock 690. Comfortable probably for 2-300 tolerable from 300-500. After that raw and beaten like thin cut steak pounded with a hammer. Longest was 800km, 17 hrs straight, 90% off road, swamps to sand, can't say for sure when my ass started to fall apart, it was a long day. My ass was beat and raw in a few spots where the seems of my underware were chafing me. Good first layer and a better seat for long haul would have been easier on my butt.

Have a 500 now and don't think I could go nearly as far but its new and my butt has had the winter to soften up, need to build some calluses (hold on to that mental image lol)
