I’ve ridden off road my entire life and am slowly starting to transition into adv riding because my knees (among other things) are having a hard time taking the abuse. I’ve played hard my entire life and guess I’m paying for it now. I have no plans to commute or ride on the highway with it,the highway is always a last resort. I’m trying to set the exc up for backroads because it still lets me get out and ride without pounding my knees. I wanted the exc because it’s power to weight ratio and the dirt bike riding position just feels normal to me. I know there are alot of other more comfortable bikes out there but I need that adrenaline rush when I decide to twist the throttle or act like Im on a dirt bike. I’ve been riding KTM’s for last 20 years so I know the maintenance procedures also. I knew going into this I would have to get the bike setup for what I wanted it to do,not here complaining I’m merely asking questions and trying to gain knowledge from others who have already been down that road. Wide seats are much more comfortable than stock 2x4s,no need to stand all the time riding adv so why punish your @ss with a stock seat?
