Does Your Butt Hurt Too?

 Special GSR late edition.  I usually post on Sunday mornings but that just wasn't happening today. Yesterday my wife and I got on the bike and went for a ride. It was a beautiful day...almost too warm. When we decided to stop for the night we also decided to close down a bar. We weren't shit faced or anything like that, just up late. When we woke this morning I just wasn't thinking about this blog.
 So, bike life with the wife is coming along pretty good. She's doing just fine on the back of the bike. The only thing close to an issue is packing. It's a huge bike but two people can use up the available storage quickly. It's not the overnight stuff so much as the "keep warm and dry" stuff. I guess the other potential problem is the weight of the bike. Stop and go city riding is a drag.

  You can see in the pic that I added saddlebag lid bras. They will protect the lids from the occasional boot scuff but more importantly the guilt my wife felt every time she scuffed them.
 When we got home I was asked if my butt hurt too. I wanted to be the tuff guy and deny it but I was sore. I haven't quite figured it out yet but something needs to be tweaked just a bit to get that day long comfort this bike should be providing. I'm sure I'll figure it out. I just need to keep riding till I do.
