They've got one in? I was in there, I guess 2 weeks ago and they didn't have one. Might have to check up and see if my seat also came in.

I also got my Omni-Cruise a few days after my last visit, so I'd like to confirm that it will fit (already pretty sure it will).

Reminds me I need to email Jody at DSP and see where my farkles are at....

I heard they are thirsty buggers. I have to say Ford has made nice changes and their trucks look almost as good as the Ram...almost...GM is about 10 years behind right now. RAM TRUCK SALE IN OUR SHOWROOM THIS FRIDAY AND SATURDAY, in case someone is interested...since I am not in sales, I can sell it for a rediculously low price, as I won't know any better.

So are you saying its too tall? Because if that's the case it may just be time for me to splurge and get a shiny new steed, I have lifted my KLR and it's still too short for my massive legs.

You are a lucky man . I guess with seat in highest position and standard suspension my feet will be dangling a feet(or more) of the ground .

I also spotted that GS at wildwood. I was drooling over it while they go me my gloves I ordered. I'm sure you guys will be proud to know I am now geared up from the feet up! Got solid stuff, can't wait to have a tech day so I can show you guys what I got and get some input.

Short people related - Low rider Sargent Seat for KLR650

For those vertically (inseam!) challenged KLR drivers, note that someone local in Charleswood (not me) just listed a Sargent brand lowered seat for $300 on Kijiji: http://manitoba.kijiji.ca/c-cars-veh...AdIdZ465212602

Nice looking seat - decent price (IMO).

Good for you Mel...better safe than sorry, as you already know . Also means wearing it all the time...even when it's 150degrees outside! Good luck with your up coming trip!
