We don't have a group as such but do go for regular rides either day or overnight we do post on the forum for the MHW overnighters so anyone can come if they wish we will be due for a weekender soon so keep an eye out.

We are going for a loop ride this Sunday if you both would like to come along leaving from the western suburbs.
If you want to come along let us know via pm or just reply here.

Cheers GotaV2 and V2man
Thanks for the info.

Not sure about Sunday, just got back from our maiden trip, just over a 1000 kms over a couple of days. I have come to the conclusion the seat sucks even with a sheep skin on it. Will be looking into an upgrade ASAP.

Other than the sore butt I am loving the bike and fuel economy is fantastic.

G'day Atlas_Aus,

There are a couple thing you could try

The Sit and Fly or similar mesh seat cover

https://ravetechmotorcycles.com/stor...at-covers.html

The Air Hawk cushions

https://airhawk.com.au/product_detai...&product_id=87

Or just go to MJM to have the seat customised

https://www.stromtrooper.com/austral...australia.html

We have tried them all and we reckon the MJM is the best.

We have two AirHawks and also a sit "n" fly if you want to borrow them to try to see if they make a difference for you.

Cheers V2man and GotaV2

Thanks guys for a great video, I must say I'm very jealous though, Victoria has been so cold this winter . I think that I've had two rides the whole winter down here!
The weather is finally picking up, so I'm off for a ride tomorrow.
Cheers
Sharon

So cold, you need to buy one of the heated vests we have on the Flea Market, we could do you a great deal
