This is great info.

I just picked up a used SMR seat from another inmate. I like the seating position much better, but needs some help in the overall comfort area.

I have the Seat Concepts foam and cover on my SM-T and it's definitely better than the stock seat. The slope is gone and everything is a bit wider, noticeably so when you put both feet down at a stop light. (Not complaining, I just notice it there)

Thanks for posting that. I can see there is not much difference in height.

Guess what the SMR foam will not fit SMT base the SMT has dip molded into the base so you have to have a SMR complete seat then it will work

And if you want taller seat without dip have to use SMR seat

One of the guys over on KTMSMT has run dirt tires for some time with good results. Most of his early pics are gone, but there are some around page 3-4.

They look a bit over the top

No I don't.
I ride mostly in parts of Haywood, Buncombe, Madison, Yancey, Mitchell, Cocke, Greene, Washington, Unicoi, and Carter Counties. Many of the slides came down onto the roads from above, and the roadcrews were able to bulldoze them off pretty quickly. When the roads drop down, it takes a lot longer, and they put up the barricades. All the barricades I know of are down except Revere Road and Guntertown Road, both in Madison County. BUT, there are many sections of many roads that are slowly but clearly cracking and separating from their mountainsides, as the rains have not stopped yet. I expect to see more roads gone any day. If you are planning a trip through here, expect to backtrack. It's a real adventure!

(Also, in the news, there is a barricaded section of Blue Ridge Pkwy somewhere that opened up down the middle, but I usually avoid that road anyway due to high populations of tourists and constabulary) .

This should be interesting indeed as I'm going to in the area in a couple of weeks.

I'm leaving out of Austin on 8/10, for a 2 week ride. I'll be visiting a friend outside of Charlotte. Then heading up to King, just north of Winston-Salem.

I plan on riding as many of the great twisties that the region has to offer while I'm there.
