    I did the one on my XRR.

    Pretty easy to do bud... even for this chucklehead. :deal

    I used an electric staple gun to attach the seat cover to the seat pan.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Doc. Maybe I wouldn't mess it up to bad.

    I have done this over the years on several bikes. Really not hard to do and I have an electric stapler if you need one... bang bang bang your done

    HS this weekend - I simply cannot make it. Good luck to MadMax and any others who venture over there. I should have checked my REAL calendar before commiting...

    20th Ride -

    Its possible that this ride my become a run-away with more folks than makes sense for one group. That said I may ask several of you to lead a group around. I will give you GPX tracks before hand. I know Madhouse and Barney know how to follow tracks... what say you guys...interested in being a "Ride Leader"

    Mr O's Upholstery on 98 in Mary Esther. He did my 530 seat for a whopping $25 while I waited.

    With a storm approaching from behind us.

    Are you gonna make the DS ride on the 20th? 690 Ride for sure.

    As I recall there are several 690 riders out there who we dont see to often. Come on out. You will like this ride.

    Alright guys....I came to the realization that I was an idiot when I bought my Honda XR 650L....it is a hog and weighs way to much. Well, I bought my newphew a DRZ 400 and can ride that faster and better than the honda. Well, with that in mind...I am going to the KTM dealership and am between the exc 500 and exc-F 350. I'm thinking I will come home with the 500. Unfortunately the wife is not so supporting...so I am trading my babies in...the honda (ok with) and my 2009 Buel CR (sad about)...
