Actually, they're timbers (folding) filled with stone dust.



They fit neatly under my other camp chair.

Hey, you got to put a cord on that foot. Drape it over your bar so you can pick it up without the bike going south. Mine is wide enough for the center stand to take off rear wheel (in dirt)

I have a VFR-riding friend who packs so much stuff behind his seat that he ends up tightly wedging his groin between the packs and his tank bag. Supremely hot and uncomfortable when I sit on his bike - if I had to do this, I'd give up riding. My admiration for anyone who can travel like this. Tougher birds than me.

How much of your motorcycle was made in the USA? Don't play the Patriot card unless you're all in.

With the 'Ottawa Senators Mod' you really don't need the board. Just trying to level the bike more in that pic.

Tie a small loop on your string that just barely fits over the ball on your clutch lever. It'll always be up there when you need it.

Now, back to the chairs.

For me, the big plus point for the Kermit is the arms - I just cannot get comfortable in a chair with no arms. I aslo like the fact it's low to the ground - I know some don't, as I normally like to sit with my feet on something so it really helps the Kermit is as low as it is.

I'm a cheap fuck (well frugal really....) and I have a Kermit. Nuff said.

I saw the big boy kermit proto last Fall. Tom also had a proto Kermit table at Shiloh Rally.

I also saw a guy that had made a headrest for his Kermit last year. I don't remember where In saw it, but it was simple, small and easy on-off.

Didn't see this one mentioned. Blue Max Chair, recent write-up down the road:

http://www.webbikeworld.com/r4/blue-max-chair/

$36 for one, but only $26 each if you buy 2

That's great news! Tom says he's working on one, but we need to be patient. I'm cautiously optimistic!!!

Do tell! Someone else here has to have seen it. Maybe some kind soul will post up a pic. If anyone here owns a digital camera...
