22 3/4" and 30 1/4" respectively according to my measurements.
At the farm stand and ice cream barn.
There was a nice sunset on the ride home.
The R80ST is a fine machine to ride around country roads.
New Hampshire USA
A metalworker friend of mine says "a place for everything, and everything on the floor."
Don't worry Renner...you shoulda seen my garage before I started my front end swap...sheesh. (just as a teaser-I went with the Airhead Wrangler mas macho kit...details to follow)
alright.....add me to the list.
its red and ends with 7337
i rode it 500 miles home from sedalia.
one hellava way to say hello to a "new" bike.
... cuz they can't fall off the floor.
Yeah, gravity sucks, even down under.....
Added, thanks. Have fun with it.
Got my new tank package from Hardwaregrrl (THANK YOU!), but I think the postman must have gotten into the packaging... they were all empty.... Gotta say, though, that's a mighty fine selection......
Surprised at the difference in size from the (grey) 80ST tank and the (blue) R65 tank....
Happy camper here... going out for an evening toot......
does it look like this?
if so, then you own one of the nicest R80STs I've ever clapped eyes on.
Does anyone have a Russell/Mayer/Corbin/etc. custom saddle on their ST? I'm pondering having mine replaced with something more comfy.
That's a neat shot with you in the mirror. :~)
oh yeah....does it ever.
i used the corbin on mine this weekend. it did a nice job. i was surprised, better than i expected. it is a little beat up, but it works.
Glad it's gonna work for you, Bob!!! That Estrella is gluten free and pretty damn good!!!
I'm also running a corbin on an ST (I'm 6;2, 200 lbs) .... very nice and much much better than the stocker on the g/s. If anyone has another for sale the g/s would be really grateful. I would never want to go back to stock after using the corbin.
Hhmm.. Sounds like a Rally purchase. How was the heat, if you were there for the MOA. I had to cx my plans due to other reasons, but was glad I missed the heat repeat from last year.
In any event, welcome to the ST world!
it was a pre rally agreement, with the actual purchase and paperwork at the rally.
ummmm......traded an 07 f800st for it.
it is bittersweet, but something i "had" to do. i have just been craving and airhead for too long, and the stars aligned..........
Yea my bike came with both the stocker and a Corbin.
I'm 5'8" with a 28" inseam, and long arms and I'm quite heavy for my size 34" waist 200#
The Corbin locked me into one position on the bike, mostly comfortable riding solo, and good with my Ex-wife as passenger, but after her all the other passengers complained about the seat.
I was totally and incredible dumbfounded by the lack of quality and design in the Corbin, The vinyl lasted less then one year of year round Seattle riding.
The seat never could be made to lock to the bike. The seat is so heavy I suspect that it's made out of depleted uranium.
To top that off the customer service at Corbin is laughable, and they have been involved in shady practices with relation to Merlin motors.
After I put the stock seat back on I stopped using the Corbin.
So...in my train of thinking, I thought the following:
The Corbin looks better on the bike but is hard and perhaps not comfortable
Russell is probably more comfortable but less attractive. (I have one on my GSA.)
I'll stick with the stock seat. Perhaps renew the cover.
It's been good to hear other people's experiences. Most of them have aligned with mine or what I thought.
In my old age (of 45), I'm starting to believe it's better to just leave things alone.
