Everything You’ve Heard to the Contrary is a Lie – Size Matters

Two weeks ago, my little Husky got some much needed lovin’ thanks to my one man pit crew. It’s really a nice service, you should try it. All you have to do is marry some dude that loves motorcycles too and stuff just shows up in the garage. He’s like the Tooth Fairy but for motorcycles. (And will also probably smother me with a pillow for calling him a fairy.)

New beefy hoops replaced the old shagged out knobblies.

And… TA DA! I have a new seat. Now to the untrained eye this seat probably looks just like the old seat. But, this seat is a magic seat. It is full of kittens and rainbows and doesn’t cut into your bum the way the stocker did. The result? Your ass is not on fire after 50 miles.

Aside from making a world of difference comfort-wise this little number has bought me about 3/4 of an inch in height. When you’re barely able to touch the ground with both feet at the same time, that’s huge.

Though my wee Husky is already lowered an inch with a Koubalink, generally speaking I kind of have to shift one foot to the other for solid footing. But I’ve found that I don’t have to shift quite as much now. I can get my toes on the ground with one foot and kinda tippy toe with the other for stability. Size matters!

    Lol and this is exactly why we love you fuzz. Now where can I find one of these men who love motorcycling to marry? Am I gonna have to put out?!

    Handy men are awesome. Being able to fix things should be a top criteria for marriagability.

      Important Marriage Criteria:

      • Can you fix stuff?
      • Can you lift heavy objects?
      • Can you nod and say “mm hmm” when I pause during a diatribe and make it seem like you’re ACTUALLY listening?
      • Can you tell me I look pretty at least once every 6 months?

    I had a friend once who would complain her BF couldn’t build Ikea furniture.

    I’m not quite sure if the look of disgust on my face was dissapproving enough.

    I have reported you to PETA and the LGBT Community for using a dirtbike seat inhumanely stuffed full of kittens and rainbows, so you’d best enjoy it while you can.

  5. I am lucky too I have one of those moto men fairy godfathers. Oh yeah its a nice thing alright! He even lets me borrow his bike from time to time 🙂

    Dirt is so much fun … if you can reach the ground! Love your new seat.

      At first I wasn’t so sure about dirt, VSL. I’ve been resistant in giving up my illusion of control. Something has changed for me though. I’m finally finding my way and having a great time 🙂
