yes

fits on the bike perfectly, and is comfortable.
My buddy from the gulf coast brought one up here back in OCT, and I liked it.
they make good campfire chairs for us, no arms, so we can pretend we know how to play guitars while sitting in them.

Yea, you just need a little chair so you can go sit by the swimming holes now that it's warm out. Looks like a good size for the back of the beemer potentially. Pack her all up again with the chair and take some pics. I have a pair of skis you can strap across the back before you go park in your work spot.

dont knock that Beemer cargo deck, it is very useful.

this chair basically expands the flat surface that I normally strap my duffle bag to.

my southern most point was my house Gus.



otherwise, I would have stopped at the bottom of the drive way, honked 4 times, waved a white flag, then called to make sure you knew it was me, before proceding ( slowly, with arms upheld) up your driveway.

Go some saddle time in...

With my bride.

We jumped on Yellaphant after church and rode to Oark for an early supper. Got there about 4:30 and slammed down a bacon cheeseburger and fries.
Met three fellas from F'Ville on road bikes. An FJR, Beemer K1200RS, and a Beemer K1200LT. The FJR pilot and the LT transport driver also ride DR650's. (Man, this place is getting infested with them things.)
I gave 'em the skinny on the ADV site and in particular how to find the NWA BS thread. I kinda dare 'em to show up.

327 miles total for the day. The Missus didn't even grouch about all that time on the road. No pics, so I reckon it didn't happen.

After being stuck at work all March, I finally got back on 2 wheels for a short ride today. Felt like I had to re-learn everything. So, I just rode the Harley on 71 to Alma and back before dark. Saw only 2 bikes, everyone must have given up for the day. Stopped at Brentwood rest stop on way back.

Not really sure why they need game wardens and park rangers for "safety inspections".
I've never heard of such a thing?? That would piss me off.
