    Poll: Aftermarket Seats

    I also find the "showroom" seats marginal at best for the real world riding. So for the past few years I have used a Sargent on my '05 1200RT that does great for up to about 400 miles, then I get the...

    I think you'll be fine if it is graded dirt with some small pea gravel. I have done that on my RT many times. However, if the road is truly all gravel you may have a problem. (mostly with your paint...
