I'm going to need a new rear put on myself before I head out in a couple of weeks so I'll probably order the mojo blocks. However I'm not sure I'll have time to help you before I go. I just realized that I'm leaving in two weeks from today. I better get my butt in gear.

I took the HF stand and cut my own blocks out of some delrin I had on hand. I have several tire tools and the HF tools are not bad for a shop, a little large to pack on a bike though

That's about right , you damn sure cant sit on 1 for long, not with a big butt anyway, so you might as well be standing the whole time.

You have not rode an ATK I really don't know what they put in that seat. It is uncomfortable by the time I leave my drive way. But it is a beast off road and handles well. I just need to learn I am not 21 anymore My heart is willing but the brain keeps reminding me of the tender ribs from my latest I can cross the boulder filled creek attempt I am gonna have to invest into more gear if I keep this beast. It has enough power to inspire me to be stupid

I think I've seen pics of your ATK , didnt you post them once or 2wice, if its the one I'm thinking about , be like kinda ridin a 2 x 4 , with the 2 side up.

I could hear it now , Hey dude , you have a motorcycle seat stuck in the crack of your butt.

LOL.

These comments are reminding me to call Corbin today. Gonna pull the trigger on the 1150 GSA seat. Should I try to match the grey/red of the original, or just do a classic black or brown (That bomber jacket brown sounds interesting)? My daughter voted for some blue in the seat to match the BMW logo. Sounded funky to me.

Ok, I've had a few to many hairy moments running Tourances on the BavBeast so a TKC80 is about to go up front.

I'm planning on sticking with the Tourance rear unless something cheap like the Shinko 705 offers a bit more rear grip without sacrificing pavement performance to much.

Questions, comments, gripements, or complaints?
