    After market seat

    Look up "mean city" in NC. You can modify the stock to your specs and have them incorporate the memory foam. I had a 2007 Road King classis, after I had it done by them it was very comfortable for les than 200, if I didn't have to get gas or answer mother nature. I can stay on the saddle for...

    Jusging from the responses from everyone, sounds like a group ride with members from the forum. So who volunteered to start a "ride" thread? My average ride after work is about 70-80 miles around the area.

Hate to disappoint you but the instructors on base and the instructor for MSF, at least the instructors at the time I took their class to ride legal on base cannot teach those technique or can perform them.

    When I was stationed in San Diego, I read in some state financial report that CA was spending 40K extra a month because they had to ensure the illegals can read booklets and other media around the state. I am sure by now it has tripled, hence CA is broke. Not a good subject for me to enter a...
