Try standing on the pegs briefly every 20 minutes or so, really helps keep the butt/knees/back etc from getting too sore when on a long ride. I've done 1100 miles in a day on a TL1000S which is similar to your SV-S wrt egros.

Wow that's a lot of miles in one day. I do stand up, but a lot. I'm going to try re padding with a denser memory foam and contour it a bit differently. Bought some yesterday. I think standing on the pegs will always be, just would like to do it less often. Kudo's on the mileage bte. TLS is a good bike, great engine.

Sounds like a plan. I'd love to see pictures of your finished product (and maybe some of the seat build too). I haven't found another bike that quite has the same level of visceral feel of the TLS - just love the thing. I've also toured on a bandit 1250 and honda 919 and have a fair bit of time on a duc monster (fun bike) and vf500 (old honda v4).

I've been looking for the TLR for awhile now and have missed a couple recently by a day or two, frustrating. Most are never in my area. One of my riding buddies has the TLS, yes, great bike! The 919 seem to be a good handling powerful bike, haven't had the pleasure yet. I'll post some pictures on the seat. Wont be till next week as I'm still working on other projects. Planning on next Wednesday to get that done. Thanks again for your thoughts!
