  1. I actually tried the Airhawk when I rode Iron Butt sanctioned rallies--found it a terrible option. IMHO nothing beats the Corbin seat for long-distance riding, in spite of their mixed customer service reputation (which I have experienced over the years). I recently put a new corbin on my DRZ400S after giving up on the factory gel seat. After two two 150 mile DS rides this past month, can report solid results, i.e., no soreness at all even after being in the saddle for 8 hours at a time.
  2. I'm riding a DRZ400S knobbies, my friend is riding a KLR, also with knobbies.
  3. Both are street legal and plated running DOT approved tires (KLR 650 and Suzuki DRZ400S).
  4. A friend and I are planning on heading down from Minneapolis MN March 31 and trailering our bikes to Mark Twain National Forest area 3 (between Springfield MO and Branson AR I think--we should arrive by early evening). We're going to set up camp and spend 4 days (Sat, Sun, Mon, Tue) riding in and around the Chadwick ATV/Motorcycle Area, possibly even a day trip into Ark. Plan is to pack up and head home to sunny Minnesota on Wednesday morning (Apr 5th). Anyone have good trail suggestions? My friend and I are looking at this ride as kind of a warm up, learning experience as we're both experienced street bike riders but new to dirt bikes (I last rode dirt bikes in the 1970s...). Bottom line is I guess no single track stuff, looking more for fire roads, interesting (easy) trails, etc. If anyone is interested in joining us for part or all of the trip, please feel free to contact me at levine98@hotmail.com.
