Talking Mystery Box

There is something in this box that when it returns will make my rides more comfortable.

Hint, It was sent to a vendor on this site.

I was thinking it's a K1600 motor and he's going to shoehorn it in there somehow.

You are right Howard. I'm getting a KonTour Seat. I'm also having it raised one inch. Now I'll be able to ride around town with the seat in the low position & move it to the high position on long day rides.

The tires have the M-S rating on the sidewall. M-S stands for Mud & Snow. When I lived in Michigan all of my vehicles had M-S tires on them.

There is a possibility of black ice again this Wed. morning. We had rain all day long today & the low spots in the roads will still have water on them Tues. night when the temps might dip into the high 20's. Guess which bike I'm riding Wed.

Re: Mystery Box

You're RIGHT! I had a brain poot and forgot about seeing the M+S rating on those tires. Just had the off-road tread design in mind. Blame it on CRS!

Re: Mystery Box

You will absolutely LOVE that Kontour seat upgrade for long rides. I can firmly state that my Kontour full upgrade are the best investment in a seat upgrade I have ever made.
