    I'm always interested in tires used for that trip. Care to tell us?

    There's a huge thread on buffeting over at Stromtroopers.com. For me, the madstad bracket is the ticket.

    Hey KKORO. I met you in Dawson when you where having breakfast with Gpax. K60 Scouts, performed very well and they last forever. I have heard some issues with thenm such as they hydro plane, not good in the mud- all false. 30 years of off road experience and relatively new to highway driving and I found these tires near perfect for muddy conditions.

    Yup, I remember. By the way, thanks for helping Greg out with his bike. Have you ever met a more determined guy than Greg. I hope to be up there again in 2019? Just traded my KLR for a 2012 DL1000. Can't wait to get up there again.

    I got my new Sit n Fly seat cover. I have a three-day ride coming up next weekend. This was the last resort before the RDL. I'll let everybody know how the new seat cover works... 20170905_192008_Film4.jpg

    Maybe. She put up a fight at first. But I'm pretty persuasive with my hands...:imaposer

    I realize I'll be buying a RDL this winter. The "lunch lady hairnet" on my seat is only to see if it makes the seat more bearable for now. I only rode 750 miles a few weekends ago and my butt and back was killing me. I've already done an Iron Butt (1116 miles in 22 hours) and I wasn't sore at all. That was on a R1200GS with and RDL seat. Riding position for me is nearly identical on my V Storm. My footpegs are about an inch higher. I'm going out on a limb here and saying maybe, possibly, it's conceivable, that the RDL made the difference.:jack

    I have some sea horse cases as well. They have worked out great, absolutely fantastic for the $.

    Did another weekend in the driftless area of Wisconsin. Stayed at Wildcat Mountain State Park. If i had a dollar for every dangerous curves sign I saw I'd be rich! 700 mile weekend. 400 miles of 25-35 mph valley curve roads. What a blast! 20170916_175457_Film4.jpg FB_IMG_1505691336662.jpg 20170916_160547_Film4.jpg 20170916_140004_Film4.jpg

    And the Sit n Fly seat cover worked great. $25 well spent!
