Just put 230 miles on the MM yesterday, and damn did I ache when I got home! Still an awesome bike though, and couldn't stop smiling.

Seat get old or something else? Looks like a good sized roomy bike otherwise...

Never had an issue with the seat 'cause its only ridden on fast backroads, which means moving your ass around the seat on all the corners

How does the suspension perform in offroad conditions? Are you riding mainly fire roads?

Pretty cool!

Front soaked up pretty much everything, the rear was less forgiving. That ride was a combination of wide open sand pits and whooped out single track.

Fire roads are for GS riders.

Yo guys, sorry to interrupt this thread on that tricked out dirt MM but I'm just going to do it. I have a MM and thought I'd better just jump in. My bike is a 2008 and the serial number is 99552 with 26K on the clock. I've read just about every page in the posting (that's a lot of reading) and would like to chime in on some stuff. I have drilled my filler neck and gotten rid of the carbon canister. I've had it about a year and only put about 2k on it. I love the bike.

Hey Justin, I live just up the road from you in Cody, Wyoming. Maybe we can ride together some day. Anyone else live in my neck of the woods? I need to get some long rides in on this thing. I don't do much canyon carving but did do the CSS in July in Utah. I'd love to get the MM to that point but it's so rare that I thought better of it, so I take it easy. I have had it up to 125, on a track of course, and there is no shake. Its smooth as can be. I did put a shield from Wunderlich on it but took it off. Undecided about that thing. I'm going to mold up my own shorty screen out of fiberglass. This winter I thought about getting the seat redone. I have some questions about some engine swaps but I'll get and give others a chance. Thanks for listening. If any of you want to yak directly I can give you my e-mail.

Just given my MM the final clean for the year, before putting it away. I'm going to need to read stories of all your bikes to keep me going over the winter.

It's been 70 degrees and sunny the last week. Too bad I'm buried in books studying.... Starting life over at 32 sucks!!!
