Re: Dead arse after 1 hour

Airhawk everytime, you will be good for hours, and buy one for your pillion! :lol:

Re: Roomiest adventure bike

Here's my two bob, and sorry in advance if I go over old ground. With knees, wrists, backs etc, there will be varying degrees of tolerance from rider to rider, by which I mean one man might be uncomfortable at say 90degree bend where the next man won't and so on. When you've made your choice, thing...

Re: Roomiest adventure bike

THanks all for the replies.

I have ridden a Vara and found it supremely comfortable, but no more leg room really than the Transalp really. I was tempted to trade-in for one last year but....

Re: Roomiest adventure bike

Then may be besides the usual Movelat gel, or deep heat, lotions potions, it could be indeed a cartladge or Synoval fluid problem. You have not mentioned whethe...
