  • "Ombra mai fu" as "Handel's finest aria?" It's a reasonable choice and it fits the quirky nature of the website. Even though the piece is marked "larghetto" it's often called Handel's Largo. It's sung by an eccentric character to a tree, praising the shade it casts. And even though it's from a secular opera, the "Largo" has been taken over by church organists and assigned quasi-religious meaning on no basis whatsoever. Ok, back to motorcycles--another informative and entertaining video, FortNine. Thanks! I might have to try to footpegs on my ST1100.

  • Many people depend on LTworlds for their income, and and the support from viewers make this possible. However, I can’t with a clear conscience use a channel that continues to platform fake news and seditionist agendas. I will therefor delete the App and only return once LTworlds has deplatformed DT and Co.

  • Interesting. As a 43 year old, I still tour the country on my ninja 636. I have a custom Corbin seat that makes all the difference. I don't see how the Wild A$$ would work being so soft.

  • I tried to do a long haul once. It was mostly highway on my fully stock Hyosung GV 250. My legs were exhausted after fighting the ~75 mph wind for only about 1 hour. What am I doing wrong? I thought it was the lack of leg ferrings, but Ryan doesn't have ferrings protecting his legs..

  • 6:10 give those chairs some saddle soap (use it right!) and a coat of leather oil, you'll thank yourself. If you want to get real wild, make a runny paste out of turpentine and beeswax, to buff as a light polish.

  • I found the Air Hawk seat pad works very well with just a small puff of air. I bought mine from FortNine. Only problem is it has a red streak down the middle, drawing attention not to the beautiful lines of your bike, but to the seat pad. I reapply black marker on it from time to time. It also is not cheap but it is tough and well made.

  • Almost every rider I know updates windshield, seats and bar risers(some do) for long distance riding. Why don't the manufacturers offer these items at the time of sale instead of the universal parts that are in the bikes? Taller shield for taller riders, shorter shield for shorter people..can't be much difference in initial cost.

  • I am not a fan of road trips on a bike! To many idiots on the interstate and weather is to bi polar any more so I use a big nice rental car wi th captain chairs and 300hp for road trips then use bikes for quick trips to town and back in 20 minutes instead of the hour in the car! But any further then that I want a big comfy chair and some steel to keep me rolling a cage!

  • I absolutely love my cramp buster. Inhad to vomit my rides Ronan hour or less, formal few years, due to carpal tunnel syndrome, and my hands either hurting, or going numb. With one of our bikes, the 90 VT 1100, thenseat padding left something to be desired, especially the pinion pad. Got a gel pad set, and it helped. Replacing the rear shocks, as they had an tendency to bottom.out on bumps, helper more, but honestly, if the factory seat is nearing the end of its life, replace it with a better one. Went to a Mustang seat, and it is almost as comfortable as the seat on my Goldwing now. Best comfort tip though, is this. Buy a bike that firs you, in the first place, and spend your money on the right add ons.

  • Add to that list grip puppies....foam sleeves that make long rides vibe free and comfy. Buy the gsa and get hard luggage. You have longer travel suspension on that and a smoother ride as well as a better standard screen. Standard gsa seat is also super comfy on long haul rides. Saddleman saddles also great but pricey as are any number of alternatives...get std seat firmed up by refoaming if needed. Thats it...thats all you need for the best long haul bike in creation.

  • Hey Ryan, I love your channel. Entertaining and informative but you gave me a bum steer on this one.... I ordered the Saddlemen TS1450R you reviewed since we have the same bike, F800GSA, but it doesn’t fit. The BMW OEM seat is too wide. I am exchanging it for the Saddlemen TS1620S which should fit our wider seats much better. Same great design and quality, and price, $115, only slightly larger. Still love your videos! Keep ‘em coming! Thanks!

  • Alaska Leather makes several sheepskin seat pad options for a lot less than the wild ass air gel pad. I bought their cheapest one ($60) several years and thousands of miles ago. It's been great. It's comfy, thin, breathable, surprisingly water-resistant, and doesn't get hot even when parked in direct sunlight. My dad got an air pad for his bike, but didn't like it at all.

  • The reason why most of the mods he suggests are super expensive is because he's paid to promote them. And someone selling a $10 item doesn't need heavy advertising. It's sad that we live in a world where a completely outrageously expensive item can make a company rich just by ripping off a few people. That's why they put so much money into advertising, because every sale means so much more. Like you don't need a large customer base when your profit margin is 95%.

  • I had a nice Yamaha 500 which I planned to take on a 750 mile round trip. The seat was quite firm and thought a handle bar windshield would be helpful. I rode over to the local Yamaha shop. I told the parts guy what I had in mind. i walked out with a seat pad similar to what you had. I also purchased the throttle pad and a after market fiberglass frame mounted fairing similar to the Vetter. With the bike stock, anything more than 2 hours would be more than you want to ride. Adding these products made a night and day difference. On the trip, when I reached the halfway point and back home, I felt like I could have added another 100 miles each way without a problem
