    On the road for a work trip. Wasnt sure how the summer "windscreen" was going to do with 600 miles of I-85/I-95 but it was ok. Clean air on helmet and not crazy air pressure on chest. This is my most common bike picture view for some reason. Stopped for a quick coffee break at a gas station while trying to ride more miles than I should to get to somewhere I should have flown to for work.

    We met in Lambertville, NJ and headed north along the Delaware River.

    Quick stop in Milford, NJ to check if the pace is ok.

    You either love beads or hate them. I love them.

    I have the stock seat and after about 45 minutes my butt gets sore. Wondering what to try before shelling out several hundred on a new saddle.

    Changed the spring for a stiffer one on the ES. Big improvement

    What spring is that? I went with an Eibach spring but had to get some spacers machined to make it work.

    I got beads on all my bikes. Your butt still gets sore but it just takes longer. When the riding temps are hot they are fantastic. I loaned a set to a friend for his Tenere on our Colorado trip and he never gave them back.
    Russel seat and beads is more plush than my Victory Vision.

    For almost a year with more than 3K miles ridden I have a Skwoosh Mid Size Motorcycle Gel Pad with Breathable Mesh (which fits perfectly with the stock seat) on my S10 and it works great!
    The Skwoosh vastly improves the comfort of the stock seat and it is made very well. The price is right and I highly recommend getting one:

    I posted on another forum. It’s a WP spring goes straight in with just a plastic sleeve.
    Much simpler instal and a huge range available
