    has anyone been using an Aerostitch Darien jacket? looking for a goretex jacket for the retirement years....
    have been looking at KLIM latitude but the price of a Darien appeals to the KLR in me...

    Speak more about the Sargent seat please.

    I think that I had one on the RS several bikes ago and have a memory of a quality seat... Did they screw something up on the FJR.

    Been wearing a Darien for a few years. I like it a lot - waterpoor and I don't look like a storm trooper.

    Or those and other reasons I'd buy one over the BMWs Greg listed but the cockpit does seem slightly different than the GS did. Think it's foot placement mostly. Not sure how he'd fit on it...but it sounds like that's a bit of a situation regardless.

    Mines back east for the moment if you're interested in trying it Greg...once the salt is gone. :Rich

    Guanajuato is one of the coolest place to stage a car rally. They run at night in and out the tunnels....crazy!!

    Somebody told me once the worst part of riding to work is the long wait in the middle between rides.

    Still, today is a pretty good day P_20180227_123257_vHDR_Auto.jpg

    I love them.

    Rugged, waterproof, mounting system is awesome, and I've made full use of the molle.

    The bags are great, and the mounting system is well thought out. I have a set of the bags, and a duffel. They are easy to swap from bike to bike, and taking the mounts off is quick and easy.
