I wear padded cycling shorts under my leathers and they really make a difference plus, no one can see them 😅
Do you also shave your legs?  :002:

Final update for now (got to order more stuff still, but need to replenish the bank account first)

Finally got a to go on a nice longer ride since it was 80 last weekend and not snowing like the weekend prior 🤣. So after a 250 mile ride, I absolutely love the bike. The exhaust is the perfect mix of sound without screaming to the point of my ears ringing. Handles extremely well for 110% stock suspension and tires (havent even adjusted the suspension. Its box stock with my 260lb butt on the seat). I no longer miss my old bike. And can easily out corner myself (20-30mph more without getting freaked out over the bikes feeling in the corner). The tune also has it buttery smooth and zero hesitation. And after riding all day. The stock seat isnt bad at all, I can easily keep riding on that seat. And averaged 38mpg while not exactly babying the throttle. Definitely extremely happy with the bike. Just need to wait for the tail bag to show up I ordered. And still want to order some more protection items (axle sliders and case sliders) and waiting for the bar end mirrors to show up at the dealer I ordered.

I could never get used to the stock seat and absolutely refuse to pay $500.00 for a new Corbin so I got the air cushion for $40.00 on Amazon from a company called Badass Moto. You inflate it just enough to bring your butt off the seat and makes a world of difference once you get the proper amount of air in it. Most people know this type of seat from it being called an "Airhawk Seat" due to Airhawk being once of the manufacturers that makes it. However, Airhawk and other brands run literally 2-3 times as much as the ones from Amazon. Mine has a nice cloth cover and even a hand pump. You never know about the quality from Amazon but I am very happy I fixed my aching butt problem for less than $50.00. I've had gel seats, extra padded seats, and other cushions on my other bikes and this setup is the most comfortable I've had. Just my 2 cents.....

Stupid question. Likely know it wont hurt anything, but with having the twdw tune and air filter, exhaust, and the aid block offs, if I had to run a tank of 87 instead of 90 non ethanol or 93 e10, would it cause any issues? Was on a group ride and went down into the rural areas of pa, and one station only had 87, luckily I still had a decent amount of fuel and held off and made to a bigger station that had 93, but for something to keep in the back of my head, would 87 be fine for a tank till I can get some higher octane fuel

(This one isn't a stupid question)  :084:

Few things to note...

2WDW doesn't disclose how aggressive they tweak the timing. So we in the dark  :187:

Even with an aggressive timing, you can run on 87 octane (U.S rating) as long as you aren't pushing the engine hard or lugging it down with added weight at high speeds. You can ride casually without an issue.

The upside with having a less restrictive intake/exhaust is lower EGT's and that lowers the "knock" risk. Just remember, if you hear someone making popcorn when riding, back off!  :005:

Well, thats my issue, as I ride the take it slow and easy usually lasts about 2 minutes, or the first corner, which ever comes first 😂

Typically though Id say Im cruising 60-80 in 6th on most roads. Or in the tighter twisted 2-4th gear running around 8k (because who doesnt wanna hear their exhaust screamin 😂)
