    Advice is a funny thing, as pro's don't need it and fools won't heed it. That said, someone already mentioned risers. I found risers that allowed me to ride while standing comfortably on my pegs took the place of an expensive after-market seat. I simply stood up when my butt got sore, and sat back down in a slightly different position.
    Good Luck and have a good time, it's a ball! We rode the mid-section (OK-UT) in '11 and went back in '12 and are planning on doing so again this June. This stuff is addictive,

    Sam updated and revised the Tennessee portion of the TAT within the last year. Less pavement now; some new routing.

    Ladies, Babies, Mamma's n Poppa's!

    I've hit the road and 7 days into the trail! Holed up in a Tulsa, OK La Quinta to do some maintenance. Me and StuntHeavy are riding together and have been camping every night so far. Wifi and time to update websites is few and far between, so I'm sorry I haven't given y'all an outlet to live vicariously through me on here. But I have been keeping up with my blog and have been updating it daily and will continue to do so for anyone that's interested. Find it at www.thetransamerican.com (just a note - not making any money off of it!)... I wish it were easier and less time consuming to upload photos from an iPhone to ADV.... But follow me if you like and give me feedback! We're having a blast and appreciate all of your support!
