    525 Seat - Asking the 525 gurus

    Thanks for the help, in retrospect the enduro engineering seat it had always took some coercion to fit. Its the single bolt style so sounds like if i go EXC pan I should be good?
  2. So I'm an idiot, some of you know this better than others. My OG Enduro Engineering tall comfort seat blew off somewhere between Santa Monica and Mission Hills. I haven't taken the seat of in probably a year, and have ridden it multiple times since then but that's no longer important. I have an 07 XC-W( i think, vin says this but might be mxc? who knows) with the OEM oversize tank. Seat concepts makes it very clear that their seat will not fit with the OEM oversized tank. Enduro engineering doesnt make 525 seats any more, and I could order an OEM one but in the OEM diagrams it displays the stock tank not the oversized tank. Who's ever ran this tank and what seat are you using? Pic for reference

    Mostly use for self protection against shady neighbors, but also work great for removing things that are in places that you no longer want them.

  5. If you're riding with Goofy make sure your headlights working good! 8am kick stands up quickly becomes 930 which becomes I wish i brought an extra set of warm gloves!

    +1 for the $50 Ebay Kyocera and GAIA paid. Nice thing about GAIA is never used an app so easy to draw lines and importing GPX tracks is plenty easy.

    Thats trick. I'd like to build something like this for my 525. Best guess on how many hours you put in? Anything you would do differently next time?
  8. The only thing I learned on this trip is that I need to get my hands on more plum schnapps and peach moonshine. @tntmo thanks for organizing, was a great time and reminded me greatly of the group/noob rides of olds!
  9. Ive had these sausages and they are delicious

    Your Next Big Ride

    I'd make a trip down for something like this.
  11. Currently in truth or consequence,NM Haven’t figured out if not having heated grips is a truth or a consequence yet. Hit plenty of dirt today and some twisties I hoped would never end. only like 2200 more miles!
  12. i feel as confident as one could feel about my gear, i may be regretting no heated grips. worst case i get over it and leave the bike with a buddy in texas and fly. About 90% ready to go!
  13. InReach will be going, I'll post the link up here. Due to limited time will likely be hitting lots of backroads and slab but will mix in dirt as much as possible to break the monotony. I heard hondas will run on french fry oil in a pinch so i shouldnt have any trouble with that riding through the midwest.
  14. Well bags are mostly packed. Still waiting on GPS routes from GPSkevin. Apparently stuck in transit between Santa Monica and Escondido. Feel pretty good about my gear, will probably need to swap tires midway through. Also will need to do many oil changes. Other than that what could go wrong!?
