Great pics Ibex. Really do enjoy following your blog.
The stock saddle it's working well for me. Usually when it starts to get uncomfortable is already time to stop and take a break, which I do every 70-100 miles. Overall, riding long distances on the 250 does make you really tired, but it's plenty of fun.I'll bet you felt some saddle soreness. I didn't hear that mentioned.
Let me know, I'll come out and join you.I plan on doing this ride next season as a two day trip...down the first day, back to Pittsburgh the second.
