    Do folks out there exploring then end up turning around quite a bit rather than trying to make it through difficult terrain? I live in Central Washington and there's lots of offroad opportunities,...

    I do indeed notice a difference in discomfort with the stock seat when wearing just jeans versus my Aerostitch so that's a good thought. Still, I'd hate to have to always change underwear just to do...

    That BMR rack really does look nice but I really don't want to spend $350 for a solution. So far a strap under the seat is looking like the best option. I'd consider the BMR rack if I always rode by...
