KTM has taught me a new word: Coccydynia
The stock KLR seat is like riding on a 2x4 - I have a sweet Corbin that I had made at the Corbin factory while I waited. I can pull a ten hour day and the only thing that hurts is my Knees and my upper back.

I bought the KTM powerparts gel seat to replace the stock. It sucked just as much as the stock.
There was another aftermarket choice but it raised the seat height almost an inch on an already tall bike.
I might attempt a backyard modification to the stock seat. Got nothing to loose but a PITA.

Wrap "[YOUTUBE]" around file "Uh2MRtPi2ns"

Awesome vid of Kyle and Leo tearing it up! There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that KTM does not hype up the 950/990 off-road capability... not saying Kyle and Leo couldn't impress me on an Enfield Bullet.

Several of us took Rayhouse Road in both directions, and when Kyle (Orange KTM, also from SF) and I got to the top of the hill on the return trip we took a detour down to Buck Island (about 10 miles round trip). It's not really an island, but Cache creek sort of wraps around the site. Really pretty spot and you can play in the creek there, with or without your motorcycle. I think Kyle took some video and maybe he'll post it. I've attached a couple of photos, but they're pretty crappy because I didn't have the correct camera settings. Hope to meet up again soon!

Leo

Never mind the photos. I guess I don't have posting privileges

Maybe some day...

That was a rather respectable pace you kept up. You probably would have left me behind in your dusty wake.

What kind of tires were you two running on those KTMs? I only noticed one traction issue on a grassy turn.
