    Your DR-Z kickin your BUTT?

    Well ok,, not the DRZ's fault that your ARSE is sore. But these OEM seats suck!! I driven my bike 2 days all road worthy. 100 miles (2 days). All I can say is my a$$ is sore. I read all the reviews on gel seats, mixed saying some love'em & some hate'em. Well I am about to come to a conclusion . I contacted a company out in Cali called gutsracing. I explained what issues I had of the uncomfortable my DRz been to me. He said the number one complain on my bike style was seat comfort. He said just for about 65.00 shipped. They will gutt out the old foam and install the new "soft" foam which is be a huge margin difference. I plan to ship my seat out tomorrow to these guys. Hey it beats buying a new seat Anyone here did the same?

    2nd day, my trip to work. Not bad over-all, but man my ARSE hurts. Well ok, not really the butt, but more the leg below my arse cheek. I really gonna need to cushion this seat man. It hurts quite a bit . Really sore sitting here on my work pc typing. Ok... let me get some ice to sit on

    I drove it to work

    thanks all. Well the bike has 5600 miles. I am not sure what kind of miles, but this bike is very very clean. Looks like it never hit the dirt by the indications of the head and carb. Handle grips looks great and I think the tires are still OEM. I'll pull the strap off 2night. as for seat. last night I took off the whole seat to see how my feet would sit if I was to sit on the frame. by the looks of it,,, I am almost flat footed on both sides w/o the seat on the bike. lol I drove home fine. Seems cars were riding my ass trying to push me to go faster. I was already running 68mph and sometimes hit up to 78mph. Speed limit was only 60 by the signs.

    I drove it to work

    Yes!! I sure did!! 25 miles one way / 50 miles a day. I have to admit, my ArSE kind of hurts. Bike not really still fitting to my height, I was able to still ride since I know the gear and clutch/friction zone really well. To about 65mph seemed ok. Going up to 70-80mph it gets really loud and rpms seems to cry loud nad not allot of UMPH after that higer speeds. I am just glad I made it to work and kept up with traffic I am still debating if I should get the lower 1" seat to get more grounded to the concret at a stop light
